Sunak’s Weapons of Maths Distraction
Ah, a new year. A time to reflect and make changes. And here comes Sunak with his five pledges… Well, I guess there’s always next year (thanks very much, fixed-term parliaments act). With the NHS in crisis, strikes never ending and the cost of living spiralling out of control – surely we need more than more maths lessons? Plus, after Christmas drew charity into focus – has the state simply offloaded its responsibilities to Good Samaritans?
• “The crisis is the result of nearly 13 years of Tory Government and it will take a really long time to fix the damage that they’ve done.” – Naomi Smith
• “Sunak’s speech was a pretty mealy-mouthed set of pledges with a maths lesson thrown in.” – Arthur Snell
• “It felt like Sunak was saying. ‘I became a millionaire with maths, you can too.’” – Naomi Smith
