Is this guy for real? Kids will be forced to take maths until the age of 18 to tackle innumeracy.

So kids that have been force fed maths for 11 years of their life and are still innumerate are suddenly going to have a moment of enlightenment by force feeding maths for another 2 years?

This is how kids end up totally disillusioned and go completely off the rails, ffs play to their strengths not their weaknesses.

Love to know where he is going to get the extra maths teachers from, there is already a massive shortage despite all sorts of bribery, force-feeding unwilling kids is part of the reason..

More reality checks on Sunak.

Sunak is about to sanction Russian diamonds, copper, aluminium and nickel which will increase the price of said commodities, this will have a disastrous effect on many of our industries and yet another drain of money on consumers. Of course investors in those commodities are going to make a killing.

Sunak is also continuing squeeze landlords by bringing in the end of no fault evictions. In reality this is going to make more landlords sell their property and those in rented accommodation will have to buy instead, another program where the rich make a killing funded by the general populace. More money is made by selling new houses than renting houses out.

The Tory Government is blaming water companies for something the Government has licensed them to do, pour waste into rivers etc. The investors made a killing over the last few years by these companies not having to process waste. Who is going to pay for this, not the Government, not the water companies, not the investors that made the profits ..... the general public are going to pick up the tab.

The general public are continuing to fund all these Tory policies of making the rich richer but still people vote for them. Financial masochism?.

It is a sad fact that the whole world is moving in this direction.

The Hunger Games and Terminator seem more real today than when they were conceived.

And more .....

The Government is taking the Cabinet Office to court.

The head of the Government is Sunak, the head of the Cabinet Office is Sunak. So Sunak is taking himself to court?

What sort of publicity stunts is this? More smoke and mirrors!

Is he? Can't see his name here:

https://www.gov.uk/government/organisations/cabinet-office/about/our-governance

The head bod for the cabinet office is Jeremy Quin - appointed Paymaster General and Minister for the Cabinet Office on 25 October 2022.

Do you have a link for "Government is taking the Cabinet Office to court"? All I can find related to that claim is this:

Government to take legal action against Covid inquiry over Johnson WhatsApps

Yes, this is getting confusing over who/which is taking which to court but whichever direction it is, Sunak is the chief bod in both cases. Sunak has the power to make an enforced decision without it going to court, he is choosing not to, normally the court would be used to make a legal opinion on something that is uncertain, in this case Sunak is just trying to distance himself.

The inquiry has made a demand, the cabinet office is refusing to comply with that demand.

The confusion is partly about who instigated the inquiry and hence what powers were transferred to the inquiry, it is often stated that the PM instigated it but in practice I don't think he has the direct power to do this, it would have to be instigated through a department which is probably the Cabinet Office.

The words "Government" and "Cabinet Office" are often used interchangeably when it comes to executive operations rather than decision making.

Whatever, it is still a farce when a Government body is stating it is allowed to self-judge what is relevant in a legal matter to smoke screen the whole situation, the inquiry is being used as a puppet as the argument is changing away from the subject matter of the inquiry and distancing the Tory party away from what it willingly did through its leader at that time.

It is complicated because it is a smoke screen, not reality.

NHS is on its knees through underfunding, semi-privatisation and profiteering. Very long waiting lists for many treatments.

The medical community is discovering the huge amount of hidden physical and biological damage that Covid has caused, even to those that only had a mild infection.

Sunak's response? "I'm going to crack down on sicknote culture".

Nice man!
