Did anyone take up the £50 bike voucher scheme?

Your Government ,gave out £50 to have our bikes repaired. I think the idea was partly to make us lose weight!

I had no problem getting my voucher via an email.

But there were no shops near me signed up to the scheme.

The voucher has now expired.

My bike is still in the garage with perished tyres, and no brakes.

Rather like the, Eat Out scheme.

That only helped spread the Coronavirus and now we instead, face another full lock down.

In the meantime MP's, Mayors, and of course your Prime Minister, go home with a huge salary.

Being a pensioner, without any add on's, one third of my so called benefit, is used, to pay off the Council Tax for a property I don't own, and is in dreadful state of repair.

I don't have a landlord to complain to, nor am I able to secure a future, by selling up. (long story which does not tick the appropriate boxes)

It is to me, totally unfair that people such as MP's sponge off we the taxpayer and then, almost could not give a fig, about real people in circumstances not created by themselves. Have to somehow, muddle through.

In the 1980's under Thatcher's Government, there was a recession. Did we get any help? No. Now billions upon billions of our British pounds, are being used to prop up what were going to be failing businesses.

Unemployed people, will get some support. That is how it works. Or should do.

If you want to bring down the price of homes and rent. Stop feeding the system.

Landlords and sellers, will have to then accept what is being offered.

Who sold off council housing? The Conservatives, and New Labour. Why?

Because, they wanted to balance the books.

To make them look good.
