A New Government and New ideas?

A new way of Government
British Prime Minister David Cameron and the Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg
British Prime Minister David Cameron and the Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg

They are telling us that it was our choice to have a coalition although I’m not sure how they can call that one. It seems to me that there was no party with the ideas or imagination to convince us.

With that in mind I have to say that I personally am quite pleased with the way that David and Nick are talking and just hope that neither of their parties start to play politics.

It has to be good for most of us that they are starting by cutting down on Whitehall costs. Unfortunately it will no doubt mean hardship for those who are part of the savings.
A London Plumbers View

As plumbers in London we know that we can only sell our plumbing service if we give good value and I am afraid that in some civil service departments this has been forgotten.
Promote Business Growth

We need to know how the Government will tackle the deficit whilst ensuring that businesses can grow to further strengthen the recovery. Please don’t place further taxation burdens on us at a time when business recovery is fragile. We need to see measures that will promote business growth and encourage employment.
An underlying issue with the banks

You must sort out the underlying issues between the banks and small and medium sized businesses so that we can get access to finance. There is lots we can do to grow, be more cost effective and more efficient but the Government must put pressure on the banks to lend to smaller firms so that they can get on with the job in hand.

The bankers didn’t lose all the money by lending to true British businesses they lost it by being greedy with very doubtful deals around the world and we bailed them out with our money.

Please put in regulation to keep our money here to enable us, the small and medium sized businesses, to lead the country out of the mess the banks created for all of us.

125,000 new boilers and £50 million pounds, wherever did that go to so quickly?

On the 15th March they were telling us that 118,000 vouchers had either been issued or were being dealt with but that only 35,000 new boilers had been installed.
If you have a Boiler Scrappage Voucher and have not chosen an installer!

If you are looking for a good firm of boiler engineers to install it for you call us on 0800 1 123 999.

Be careful before you accept one of these offers from the energy companies when they offer to match the £400 pound Boiler Scrappage voucher with a similar sum as even after all this generosity you may find that you are paying more than you would from lots of other installers.
