How come when Corbyn came up with new projects that would benefit society he was ridiculed and yet Boris & Co come up with a bunch of meaningless words and everybody thinks its great. Now who is the popularist and who isn't?
Because his projects - such as free broadband and re-nationalising everything - were unworkable.
That was a good soundbyte by many a newspaper and Tory politicians, but nobody explained why they were unworkable. Corbyn had fully costed everything and had it independently audited - something the Tories have never done with their "promises".
Don't you think the country's infrastructure and manufacturing industries should be made resilient, you certainly can't rely on private industry to do that.
Look at our mobile network, it started 36 years ago and despite all the promises, it has never been completed.
Look at the disaster that is our sewage network.
Look at our water network.
Look at our rail network.
Look at our energy industries.
Look at our steel industry.
Look at our shipyards.
Look at our car manufacturing.
How can it make sense to be importing Chinese cranes to Liverpool's docks, especially when some of the metal in those cranes was sitting as scrap on Liverpool docks a few years beforehand.
How can it make sense to import coal from Australia to the UK when it is sitting beneath our feet?
We need to manufacture, we need to balance our trade, we can't rely on gambling in the money markets to maintain our income.
Look at the value of our main NET
exports in 2020
Aircraft, spacecraft: £3.8 billion
Collector items, art, antiques: £3.4 billion
Organic chemicals: £1.8 billion
Ships, boats: £1.2 billion
Iron, steel: £1.0 billion
Tanning, dyes, paints, varnishes, ink: £0.8 billion
Books, newspapers, pictures: £0.7 billion
Other chemical goods: £264 million
Beverages, spirits, vinegar: £216 million
Arms, ammunition: £182 million
That's less than £13,5bn, do you think that is sustainable when our GDP is around £2000bn and our national debt is £2200bn, it doesn't even pay the interest on our debt. We need to stop paying foreign companies to do things we can do ourselves and export more.
