The Chancellor often says that Labour put off the day of reckoning over the nation’s ‘maxed out’ credit card. But it looks like some Tories are refusing to actually dig into their own pockets to pay some of the bills in here Manchester.
One report that the Radisson Edwardian Hotel has had a rash of ‘no pays’ for lunches, teas, coffees and even dinners at its Alto restaurant.
Cheeky delegates, who are not staying as guests at the hotel, have been waltzing in, finding tables, ordering grub or drinks and then just waltzing out again. The problem was particularly acute yesterday after the conference emptied after key speeches, I’m told.
But someone has to pick up the tab, of course and it seems those at the bottom are suffering. one poor member of the hotel staff it was reported has had to pay £80 from her own pocket to foot the bill for a gaggle of delegates who supped their wine and promptly legged it.
The funny thing also is when they use BBC Staff to fill the hall Ian lindey and Harry Enfield must have got the Bus back home.
While the Chancellor repeated his proposals about long-term investment plans, we regret that there is still no plan to boost demand, growth or jobs in the short-term. Fiscal responsibility also hinges on growth in the short-term, but Government policies remain too timid and incoherent.”
What are Tory Policies ?do they make them up as they go along.I am not really surprised with there latest attack on the Ordinary working man doubling the time it takes before you can go before a tribunal with an unfair dismissal case,its also some what amusing there latest about turn over bin collections.One thing they could never call themselves is the party of the people.
I think in one short term they have proved once again to be the party of those with the most in our society,all this while the working classes take a good kicking.
