President Biden

Recommended Posts

Biden! The architect of a game-changing deal that will at last see global tech companies pay a fair share of tax. Something Trump would never have achieved.

And someone who will tell it as it is ... Bibi last week, Boris this week, Putin's turn soon.

On another thread you'd be saying 'because of covid'. But don't worry cos no one cares about Biden.

Oh I think they do, Johnson for one looking incredibly needy especially after the diplomatic kick in the nuts he's just had from Biden.

He really cares 🤣

The question I'd have re. job creation figures, as ever, is what kind of jobs are they? The impression I get is that many are relatively low-paid.

Job creation roles are often entry level. But the key is that once someone manages to break the barrier to a first job then progression is very likely. I ran a large one many years ago for quite a few years and 83% of starts converted to permanent roles. That's the main determinant.

Job creation schemes have some of the best outcomes than many other employment initiatives. They are sustainable. One pinch point with them is the sheer start up and on-costs (Tory administrations used to dislike) but when you look at outcomes it is an upfront funding investment that pays off. Many from under-privileged backgrounds can get the chance to break into a role for example. No terrible barriers (real or assumed) to have to face.

I wish we had a big national scheme and tied it into the sectors we really need to invest in, ones that have a future, that will help re-industrialise (in a green way). It's about time we heard less of our politicians talk things up. Needs delivery.

Biden, sleepy as ever but the consummate politician. Smartly dressed, quick with praise of his hosts. Boris. Bag of siht tied up in the middle, thumbs up like a bomber pilot for every photo shoot and agreeing with everything because he wasn't listening to the question.

Meanwhile more positive news on environmental protections. Reversing more Trump idiocy.
