Out going CBI boss Sir Richard Lambert has said this “coalition lacks vision”, well I think you will find that, that isn’t the only thing it lacks sir. The Cameron and Clegg show have earn’t themselves the reputation as a pair of con artists.
These 2 people have, lied, cheated and basically betrayed the British people, when they were campaigning they made promises that basically gave the British people, belief that the UK would be up and running, and doing what we do best, leading. But here we are 8 months later, unemployment up, businesses closing everyday, prices up, taxes and vat all increased, public services cut to the bone. These 2 aren’t interested in making Britain Great again, all they are interested in is there own ego’s, Cameron who has more arrogance than a 11 year old kid, and Clegg,well he is there telling people he is the first deputy prime minister of the Liberal democratic party, and his name going into the history books. Well I got news for the pair of you, you will both go into the history books, as the double act who destroyed a nation, and the biggest pair of con artists in history.
The outgoing boss of the business body CBI has accused the coalition of failing to come up with policies that support economic growth.
“It’s failed to articulate in big picture terms its vision of what the UK economy might become under its stewardship,” Sir Richard Lambert said in a speech.Sir Richard said business supported the government’s spending cuts. But some politically motivated initiatives were damaging, he said.
The government has “taken a series of policy initiatives for political reasons, apparently careless of the damage they might do to business and to job creation”, Sir Richard said in his last major speech before his departure on Friday.
Spending cuts and initiatives such as this month’s VAT increase from 17.5% to 20% would help fix the UK’s structural deficit over time, Sir Richard said.”But to bring the public finances back to full health, they will have to be accompanied by increased output and employment – which bring with them higher tax revenues,” he stressed.
“Public spending cuts and private sector growth are two sides of the same coin.”
Hence, without initiatives supporting private sector growth, the spending cuts would not only be futile; they would be actively detrimental, he reasoned.”It’s not enough just to slam on the spending brakes,” he said.”Measures that cut spending but killed demand would actually make matters worse.”
Graeme Leach, Institute of Directors’s chief economist and director of policy, added: “To assist economic growth, the Government should be making it easier for businesses to employ people, not harder.”
Ed Balls, Labour’s shadow chancellor, urged the government to heed the warning from Sir Richard.
“These are damning criticisms from such a respected figure in the business world,” he said.
Shadow business secretary John Denham, meanwhile, insisted: “Vince Cable’s credibility is once again called into question”.Len McCluskey, Unite general secretary-elect, also agreed with Sir Richard’s assessment.
“It’s not often that Unite and the CBI find common ground in criticising the government,” he said.
“Sir Richard’s views are a major wake-up call for David Cameron and George Osborne; the medicine they’re feeding the patient will kill, not cure.”Now that even the CBI are warning that the coalition’s policies are ruinous, it’s time to end the experiment by this out-of-touch elite and start generating jobs and economic growth.”
