Promises we have heard before

BRITAIN’S future, according to Chancellor of the Exchequer George Osborne and Treasury Chief Danny Alexander, is to become rosy as they plan to spend billions, which we don’t have, on our infrastructure.

A subtle passing remark by Mr Alexander that the £28bn for roadworks, £20bn for schools and the £3.3bn for housing would not be available till 2015-16.

That would just be the start of cash for the future projects.

It’s great news for the unemployed of our country.

But – there is always a 
but – one has to wonder where the money will come from.

Who can foretell what the Government’s capital budget will be by the time we reach 2015?

And will the coalition retain power to initiate the start of any of the proposed projects?

Austerity has been the electorate’s bedfellow these last years while no effort has been made by the coalition to invest in what would have been working programmes, employing the workforce of Britain, and rejuvenating our economy.

Promises, promises, promises.

We have heard them all before.

Are we falling for the same old rhetoric as the next General Election draws ever so close?

Now jam in the future is on the table if the coalition or the Tory Party wins the 2015 General Election.

Don’t give up spreading the margarine yet, or in the future.

For the adage that comes to mind is “tomorrow never comes” as past broken promises have proved in former Prime Minister’s pledges.
