May­day, the coun­try is crash­ing

Hinckley Times - - LETTERS -

THE avoid­able fi­asco of see­ing Gatwick air­port close for over 30 hours smacks of an in­com­pe­tent, in­ert, in­ca­pable, im­po­tent gov­ern­ment! It wasn’t that the trans­port Sec­re­tary Chris Grayling was be­hind the (learn­ing) curve; he was deny­ing there was a curve!

The Home Sec­re­tary Sa­jid Javid was nowhere to be seen or heard? And now the po­lice re­veal that, most of the drone sight­ings, were ac­tu­ally their drones; so their ac­tion and gov­ern­ment inaction com­pounded the chaos; in­tel­li­gence to Sus­sex po­lice is a con­tra­dic­tion in terms, and in­com­pe­tence is al­ways in­cluded in the terms of gov­ern­ment con­tracts in­clud­ing Brexit!

The Se­cu­rity Min­is­ter Ben Wal­lace, (af­ter the event) ad­vises he will NOW lift re­stric­tions ban­ning air­ports from us­ing drone counter mea­sures? Un­be­liev­able! And when they even­tu­ally brought the Army in, the army had to bor­row equip­ment it should have had, from a pri­vate com­pany. Ir­refutable ev­i­dence of gov­ern­ment un­der­fund­ing which is a way of life for this ad­min­is­tra­tion! Yet in de­fi­ance of pub­lic opin­ion, the gov­ern­ment are hap- pily spend­ing £13.7 bil­lion on for­eign aid, de­spite be­ing told in ev­ery en­quiry into it, that they are wast­ing money! And they are fall­ing over them­selves to pay the EU £39 bil­lion; for what ex­actly? But spend money on the elec­torate, se­cu­rity and ser­vices, or re­store the orig­i­nal bud­get for Uni­ver­sal Credit, dream on! To cap it all we now have bor­der force hoover­ing up mi­grants (who have paid thou­sands of Eu­ros to peo­ple traf­fick­ers) from the chan­nel and bring­ing them here, so as­sist­ing the traf­fick­ers! This is con­trol of our bor­ders?

From Shire hall to White­hall, the Tory lead­er­ship, and min­is­ters have re­peat­edly messed up, hav­ing aban­doned core vot­ers, and (they) have lost the con­fi­dence of the ma­jor­ity elec­torate! Their at­ti­tude is come what “May” they will go their way! Coun­cil­lor Rush­ton, the county coun­cil leader, and Theresa May need to un­der­stand there is no “I” in team or democ­racy, but there is in dic­ta­tor! Look closely and see that their op­ti­mism is based on not know­ing what they are on about! May­day, may­day, the coun­try is crash­ing!
