Car­ney can’t dic­tate to us about money

Western Daily Press - - Opinion -

HOW can Mark Car­ney dic­tate to us over money when he holds a £100,000 party for his bank em­ploy­ers. It makes a non­sense of what he preaches.

Where does the Bank of Eng­land get all its money from, as it seems to have plenty to shell out on what it wants, in­clud­ing gen­er­ous leav­ing gifts to its former gov­er­nor?

I won­der what Car­ney will get when he leaves. He cer­tainly doesn’t de­serve a knight­hood.

At this time ev­ery year, we are told rail fares are go­ing up, with prom­ises that the ex­tra money will be used to im­prove the trains, but it never re­ally hap­pens. It is time im­prove­ments to the whole rail sys­tem were seen to be done first – only then price rises might be jus­ti­fied.

Over the sum­mer, with rail ser­vices in ‘melt­down’ and other on­go­ing prob­lems for com­muters, Trans­port Sec­re­tary, Chris Grayling, showed no lead­er­ship and needs to be re­placed with some­one with more guts.

On an­other sub­ject, why is it that trav­ellers who park il­le­gally on coun­cil and agri­cul­tural land are not fined for leav­ing their huge amounts of rub­bish when they are moved on?
