There is not a person on earth who thinks that a new job can be created in the UK for an investment of £1,500. That is not possible.
Piffle. Ghastly piffle too.
How much investment do we need to “create” a job? OK, let’s say we’re going to go dig out some of those ditches around Ely to keep the Fens drained. We need what? Pair of gumboots. OK, upgrade to waders. And a shovel.
So, we’re done, job created for £50.
We need – Snippa keeps telling us we do at least – more carers. The investment needed is what? A mobile to tell her where to go and when. A white coat nicked from the doctor’s pile?
OK, sure, we can start to talk about the investment required to create productive jobs, that’s true. But then if we were doing that then we’d not be talking about green jobs, as Snippa is, would we?
