No it ain’t you lying toad

The BBC has reported that:

Mortgage payments will be suspended across Italy as part of measures to soften the economic blow of coronavirus on households, a minister has said.

Laura Castelli, Italy’s deputy economy minister, told Radio Anch’io: “Yes, that will be the case, for individuals and households.”

Italy’s banking lobby group ABI said lenders would offer debt holidays to small firms and families.

This is, of course, one of the proposals I made here a few days ago for managing this crisis.

You said landlords should get stiffed for the rent. That ain’t the same as mortgage demands being suspended – not forgiven – for a bit.

Snippa’s claim now is that “I said something should be done, something different is, therefore I’m right!”

  1. He’s the pub bore that claims he’s “done that”, “been there”, “seen that”, “that was my idea, that was”.

    There’s always one in the office, usually a younger lad. It is sweet when he gets the fx hedges wrong way ’round.

    Not a good day for actresses in the US. From now on it is more likely they will have to show some acting talent in order to get the roles, a BJ will not hack it.

  4. Off Topic but your fucking Nationalist idiot government is doing what they all do but since you ( quite wrongly) imagine I am in any way”left wing” perhaps you will take the word of the Adam Smith Institute and many others who find the Brexit Party`s lies abhorrent and its populism disastrous…
    ” It is seriously concerning that the Government is looking at ripping up the fiscal rules. A Conservative Government should not implement debunked Keynesian stimulus theories. Some infrastructure and public services spending, as well as supporting individuals and businesses during Covid-19, is necessary. But in the longer-run, spending like a drunken sailor will not create a thriving entrepreneurial economy”

    That about sums it up for me and you know of course they had most of this planed with out the bad cold just to cover up the Brexit recession

  5. Sitting the right way round on a lavatory seat is way too technical for you Diogenes .Jesus £60 billion deficits going forward and that’s if things go well. The thing here is not to be confused by the one off virus bung , the underlying spending represents a vast increase in the State`s reach without even the saving grace of a Social Democratic rational plan.
    People don`t see what we have got here , it is not what used to be the Conservative Party .It is the sort of movement that is elsewhere characterised by comedy fake military uniforms rotting vanity project dams and airports and a bankrupt laughing stock of a country

    That is what Nationalist governments do – it is what the always do and about now I think anyone who has some belief in the market might like to apologise to me
    I told you that Brexit was collectivist it has to be , it was about” Us “ and “them” and what have we got? Spending on a level the clown in the hat could barely exceed, the most protectionist administration I have ever seen, winner picking , loser saving…inventing new fiscal rules every year and forgetting what was said yesterday.

    What a sad fucked up mess

  6. People don`t see what we have got here , it is not what used to be the Conservative Party

    True, what used to be the Conservative Party ceased being electable in May 2019. Much as you love living in the past, you can’t stop progress, Newms x

  7. News – UK Budget

    Whisper Shout it, but is this Government socialist? – Matthew Lynn, 11 March 2020 • 6:32pm

    It is too early to tell, given the coronavirus, but the Budget betrays a huge faith in the state to boost growth

    If you happen to be a Conservative, or at least of a mildly centre-Right disposition, there was at least one consolation. We won’t have to listen to people moaning on about austerity anymore. In his Budget, the new Chancellor Rishi Sunak ripped up 10 years of restraint and started spending on a scale that might have made even Gordon Brown blush. Unlike his dour Labour predecessor, however, he didn’t trouble himself to label it as “investment”. From the health services to roads, the magic money tree will be shaken and shaken over the next few years in an avalanche of public spending.
    There is nothing necessarily wrong with that. Even before the coronavirus hit, there was a strong case for boosting spending. Borrowing was already dirt cheap, and over the last few days it has become cheaper yet. But here’s the problem. “Boris-ism”, which mainly seems to involve lots of JCBs and hi-vis jackets, is not going to be enough by itself. Sooner or later, the Government will have to do something to improve the incentives to work, to fire up entrepreneurial energy, and to get business and the free market moving.
    There is still, of course, a chance that it will. We will never know what the first Budget of the Johnson administration might have looked like if Britain, along with the rest of the world, had not suddenly been plunged into the greatest public heath crisis of the last 100 years.
    Maybe we would have seen a blizzard of tax cuts. But the coronavirus made it a priority to help businesses through what will be an intensely challenging few months. Together with a surprise rate cut from the Bank of England, the UK has put in place the kind of co-ordinated monetary and fiscal response that is urgently required (and which makes a painful contrast to our neighbours in the eurozone, who have nothing like the same flexibility). With any luck, it will at least limit the damage a possible epidemic does to the economy.
    But the Budget did also contain some worrying signs that, once the shadow of coronavirus lifts, this Government will not, after all, deliver the kind of pro-growth Thatcherism many of us have been hoping for.
    True, it was not a Labour-lite Budget: the kind of speech that, say, Yvette Cooper might have delivered in some parallel universe where she was Ed Miliband’s chancellor. It was firmly in the Conservative One Nation tradition, with its emphasis on building, science, the regions, and on healthcare, policing and education.
    But the plans the Chancellor unveiled betray an extraordinary faith in the power of government to make a success of every project. Does it know what kind of infrastructure will lift productivity? Has it any idea which technologies to back, and where research is most needed? Or will we look back in a decade on a series of white elephants – digital Concordes and AI-designed bridges to nowheresville – that are more reminiscent of Harold Wilson’s 1960s than Margaret Thatcher’s 1980s.
    The Budget contained no major tax cuts to improve the incentive to work, or to signal that the UK was welcoming inward investment, or to start unleashing the power of enterprise to fix social and economic problems. Nor was there any hint that the state, while it can sometimes be the solution, can often be the problem as well. Indeed, entrepreneur’s relief was scaled back, and the Chancellor confirmed the planned cut in corporation tax to 17 per cent has been scrapped.
    Mr Sunak could have done so much more. Even if the funds this year had to be targeted at fighting a slump, he could have announced a programme of measures for the years ahead. A pledge to reduce the basic rate of income tax by 2025, just in time for the next election, would have been a great rabbit to pull from that hat. So would enterprise zones, free ports, and a promise to repeal at least three fiddly, long-forgotten tax breaks for every new one the Government introduces. That would have shown the Government recognises that sustaining demand is not enough if business does not have the ability to make things in new and innovative ways and get rewarded for doing so.
    One day we might see a genuinely reforming Tory Budget. If the economic situation continues to deteriorate, it may even come later this year. But in truth it wasn’t this week.

    BoJo Gov’t: Socialist, state knows best, tax and spend & borrow. White elephant and bridge to nowhere: Boris is onboard HS2 and NI/Scot bridge

    SNP using Coronavirus to increase state control of Scottish economy, people and property

    Fiona Hyslop, the Economy Minister, said the Scottish Government Executive is preparing to unveil emergency legislation that could see schools and train stations shut down to delay the spread of the virus.

    The Sunday Times also reported that buildings including hotels could be requisitioned to help cope with a large rise in sick patients

    Nicola Sturgeon confirmed that Government officials are preparing for 100,000 deaths* across the UK, but said this was a “worse case scenario” and should not be regarded as a forecast.

    * 100,000 premature deaths – over a year – equates to ~16% increase in avg UK daily death rate of ~1,650pd

  9. UK Budget

    Left Host: They’re all Labour party members now based on that budget

    Labour’s Lisa Nandy criticises the “great big gaping hole” in the Budget 2020

    Agree with LBC woman on that. Nandy is as loopy as Soubry

    Rishi Sunak no better than Javid, Dom Cum must be ripping out his few hairs

    We voted for a Conservative Gov’t, we receive a Labour Gov’t – farewell Democracy

  10. Newmania,
    The UK had to leave the EU because the UK world view is too different from the EU’s for the UK to ever be a satisfactory member of the United States of Europe that they are eagerly working towards. If the UK is now acting like a middle-aged man who has divorced more cheaply than expected and has bought a bright red sports car to celebrate, that is because all Western European governments are senile and dying, as they deseve to do. Sad, but there it is.

  11. Pcar, I think Cummings is not a friend of small state, small government. I think he likes this budget.

    National Socialist

    There was reason it was called that…..A Paul Goodman has said if the state was better at promoting growth why did we not elect Jeremy Corbyn
    First time I have agreed with that cunt in five years and the funny thing is it was always going to be this way. Ye gods the Guardian is crowing about the rebirth of Butskellism…as if it was a good thing !!!!
    ..and it is is all your fault all of it . Take a boo dupes I will start accepting those humble apologies now you wankers

  13. Facepainter–You do not pay gob-service perhaps to open Marxist evil but you are the essence of well-off, middle-class Marxist , London Bubble treason-trash.

    Keynes was and is a buffoon –and dropping his shite would be the best thing ever-since Brexit-for the UK.

    As for Blojo–he is YOUR kind of moneytree scum. He saw that the marvel and miracle of Brexit was good for him–and like most self-serving political psychopaths he jumped on the bandwagon. He was right about the goodness of Brexit. In all other respects he is a BluLabour middle class Marxist cunt like you. Full of eco-shit, pissing his pants at any cry of “waycism”, servile in every way to Marx-cant. That he is throwing about colossal sums of cash we don’t have–blame your fuck-buddy Keynes. Blojo is still the same trash as Camoron, Treason May (EU Agent) Bliar and Broon. All scum like you.

    Don’t worry about sitting the correct way on the bog–the shite should be beaten out of you anyway.

  14. Hang on there, Newmy, I thought you loved Butskellism. Aren’t you always bleating about those good old days of consensus politics?
