Boris Johnson’s upbeat optimism will be music to the ears of workers struggling after years of austerity

BORIS JOHNSON today promises a low-tax, high-earning economy — even hinting he will slash VAT.

His ambitious plans to turbo charge post-Brexit Britain need more detail.

But if they put more money back into workers’ pockets and allow them to keep a greater amount of their hard-earned cash it will be just the shot in the arm that we need.

BoJo’s upbeat optimism is infectious and will be music to the ears of workers struggling after years of austerity and belt-tightening.

As he says, Britain has for too long been living on “nothing but a diet of miserabilism.”

A little more of the BoJo feelgood factor will go a long way to getting Britain booming again.

Insult to Grenfell dead

YOU would think relatives of the Grenfell Tower victims had suffered enough.

The callous approach of a US company being sued over cladding material that allegedly turned their tower into an inferno adds insult to their injury.

A US company have claimed that the victims of Grenfell could have died from ‘pre-existing medical conditions’[/caption]

It stated in legal documents that it should not be held ultimately responsible for victims whose deaths were the “result of pre-existing medical conditions”.

Many victims were burned alive or suffocated in their own flats.

The Saint-Gobain Corporation’s grotesque legalistic attempts to wriggle off the hook are sickening.

Its millionaire boss should be called to account.

But as Head Simon Henderson says: “If you are good enough and want to come, we’ll find the money. We want your sons at Eton.”

We wish every school had Eton’s facilities and resources.

Until then this is the chance of a lifetime for a lad — regardless of background.

Gary’s net gains

FANCY that! Gary Lineker earns £1.75million for his BBC work.

Jimmy Hill pulled in viewing figures of 12million on the same show, but only earned £130,000 in today’s money, 13 times less than Lineker.

It’s a funny old game.
