iPhone : We’re not even 48 hours out from the Summer Statement and it’s already unravelling.

If the Treasury hasn’t modelled how many jobs the Job Retention Bonus will protect, how does the Chancellor even know this will work?

We need action to save jobs, not more policy on the hoof. twitter.com/bbclaurak/stat…

iPhone : The National Audit Office report on Universal Credit today shows:

❗️£1 in every £10 spent incorrectly

❗️Exacerbates debt and hardship rather than supports people

❗️Fails the most vulnerable claimants

❗️Implementation costs up £1.4bn

Labour will replace Universal Credit twitter.com/patrickjbutler…

Twitter Web App : The rationale for extending free over 75s licence was to ensure information was shared at an exceptional time. We aren’t out of harms way and god forbid we have a second spike in the virus, this is the wrong decision at the wrong time

iPhone : This is really exciting. No doubt really difficult times at the moment but we will come through this and local councils laying the ground is vital. twitter.com/oldhamcouncil/…

iPhone : More job losses on the high street

We might as well accept the government have zero intention of stepping up. So sorry for the staff of John Lewis twitter.com/skynews/status…
