Lets be fair to Mr. Cameron and Mr.Osborne,they are trying, some say including myself, very trying, by the way how did your regional launch for employment go last month? So far I haven’t heard of any cities taking your offer up, lets get real here, the incentive you are offering for these enterprise zones are tax incentives, and start up grants, the same as your Mickey mouse scheme that you announced last month. There is only one problem with your scheme, it wont work until you up the anty you are going to give because people will still need to borrow from the banks, and as we all know, the banks wont lend to new businesses at the moment. Your scheme didn’t work under Maggie; do you really believe it will work now? What’s next the re introduction of the YTS, for youngsters without a job?
The Prime Minister will tell the Conservatives’ spring forum he wants to make it easier for people to start their own business and will get rid of some of the rules and regulations that stand in the way. Among his proposals is a plan to encourage government departments to award more contracts to small and medium-sized firms.
He will accuse Labour of smothering the life out of business and say he has an “almighty job to do” fighting against bureaucrats and their “ridiculous rules” and town hall officials who “take forever” making planning decisions.
“There is no shortage of enterprise in this country,” he will tell delegates in Cardiff.
“I see it in the ideas and energy of all the entrepreneurs I meet – British people selling curries to India and fashion to France.
The enterprise culture is alive and well. Now, we just need an enterprise government to go with it,” he will add.
Mr. Cameron’s coalition has come under pressure to demonstrate it does have a plan for encouraging growth and creating jobs.
At the end of last year, the economy shrank by 0.6%, raising fears the economic recovery has stalled.
Labour has accused the Government of implementing spending cuts that are too fast and too deep.
But Chancellor George Osborne insisted he has implemented the right policies for the UK economy and has no plans to change course.
He told Sky News he had a “credible” policy that has been endorsed by “almost every international organisation you can think of”.
“What we’ve bought for ourselves, with the very large mess in the public finances I’ve inherited, is breathing space, stability – the things that Ireland and Greece don’t enjoy,” he said.
