Since the coronavirus and the Westminster government closed down my face to face business at the craft fair in Glasgow’s merchant city… I can’t say that it’s been easy.
The Westminster chancellor Rishi Sunak decided not to support new starts, self employed and others in his ‘ support package’ . He heavily funded big business with taxpayers cash and no strings attached. They are now shedding jobs after filling their pockets with our cash. Tax havens are being flooded by these rogues. Jobs are being lost in the 10’s of thousands. Why this person feels that people like myself should be excluded from the same support afforded to most, Is alarming. Even more disturbing is the fact that not only does he want me and others like me, to pay for everyone else’s support in our future taxes. This position cannot continue. This position is not only unnecessary but also shows a level of hatred of 3 million workers by a nasty government to the working population.
Scotland is also in this clowns sights. The furlough scheme will end when England decides it no longer needs it. Regardless of the wishes of the devolved Parliaments. We now find ourselves in a Union that only acts for the needs of one of the 4 countries. It is clear that the Scottish government are acting in the best interests of public health and therefore want to continue with this scheme until we find ourselves in a position that the pandemic has been suppressed and a safer, near normal working life can be achieved.
Anyway… as the chancellor continues to exploit the 3 million workers, not allowed support by the furlough scheme. It is more important than ever to buy from small businesses like mines and my friends. #SupportSmallBusiness
