@Sarge ..... Government listening and working for you! :) (y) (y)

lip service in reality .... even the basic stats ( re- recorded near miss incidents) in the link are seriously shocking
no time given as to when refuge type laybys (at a mile apart- they should be every 6-700 meters tbh) will be installed and completed by?
just the plucking of figures out of the air and claiming that is what will be spent, but not even a hint of when the urgently required improvements to safety will begin, never mind finish (Tory spends on pet projects have a habit of being grossly underbudgeted for - HS2 for example)

|During the run in to the recent GE labour manifesto with a costed spend of £92bn was ridiculed by the Tory backing media

Budget yesterday announced in the region of £600bn spending - the silence from certain elements of the media is a bit deafening

Like all budgets, the devil will be in the detail for all the spending announcements and whether they happen at all.

Classic case of "do nothing" get slated, "do something" its "lip service". :)

Such infrastructure doesn`t appear through an intergalactic portal, it will need planning etc.

The difference is that the Tory Government borrows to invest and progress whereas Corbyns Clowns wanted to "give stuff away (free broadband anyone?) & nationalise everything".

how very Gordon Brown -esque that is ;)


Jezza's 'giveaways', as you call em, were fully costed and amounted to £92bn. (and ridiculed by the redtop media )
First Tory Budget from Bojo's bozos 'announces' £600bn spend, ... the silence from the redtops, owned by Tory funding/ tory supporting tax exiles , is absolutely deafening 🤫🤔😯
