Rishi Sunak's budget will do nothing to address a decade of economic negligence | Anneliese Dodds
Labour would hand much-needed power to local communities and bring security to people’s workAnneliese Dodds is the shadow chancellorLabour would back gradual rise in corporation taxOur country is in the midst of the worst economic crisis of any major economy. The question facing us all is why, in one of the richest countries in the world, with our brilliant NHS, key workers and scientists, we have suffered so badly.Part of the problem has been the government’s appalling economic mismanagement and slow decision-making over the past year. But it runs much deeper than that. The foundations of Britain’s economy, fundamentally weakened over the past decade, have been exposed by this crisis. Everywhere you look, the Conservative approach has proved disastrous. Millions of people have fallen through the gaping holes that the Tories have torn in the social security net. After a decade of negligence and broken promises on social care, a generation of older people were left exposed to the virus in a system that has become a national disgrace. The tragic consequences were entirely avoidable. Continue reading...

UK Should Have Been Better Prepared For Covid After Sars, David Cameron Admits
David Cameron has admitted the government failed to properly prepare for Covid-19 and should have learned from the Sars outbreak. The former prime minister, who was in power from 2010 to 2016, said that ministers focused too heavily on a possible influenza pandemic. Instead, they should have broadened preparations to include all respiratory illnesses, saying “more should have been learned” from Sars in 2002. Like Covid, Sars was a new contagious coronavirus. Influenza is also a contagious respiratory illness, but of a different family of virus. The government has repeatedly been criticised for not preparing the UK for a new and unknown disease. Speaking to the national security strategy committee, Cameron said: “I think the mistake that was made was that in thinking about future pandemics, the focus was very much on influenza rather than on respiratory diseases and I think that is where, and I am sure there will be a big inquiry into what we learn and all the rest, but I think there was a pretty good flu pandemic plan but it was a flu plan rather than a respiratory illnesses plan.” Cameron said his government had “set up a unit in the Cabinet Office to do sort of global virus surveillance” but he was “not quite sure what happened to that”. He added: “But [...] more should have been learned from the experience with Sars and the respiratory diseases in terms of our own preparedness. But I wouldn’t blame the national security architecture for that. The architecture was there.” A 2016 drill, called Operation Cygnus, was aimed at testing UK resilience. It exposed how hospitals and care homes faced being overwhelmed should a new virus hit the UK.It was criticised for failing to check up on supplies of personal protective equipment (PPE), capacity for testing and the number of ventilators. MPs also uncovered last year that that it failed to make any recommendations to Treasury or business officials. Amid rumours that former US president Donald Trump was considering a return to politics, Cameron was also asked if he would consider a comeback. Former prime minister David Cameron tells a committee of MPs that the Brexit referendum “was properly thought through” and not an “afterthought”.Get the latest news and headlines here: https://t.co/TVxfGKeZcapic.twitter.com/hCrnOPXKO7— Sky News (@SkyNews) March 1, 2021“No,” he said. “Thinking about Donald Trump making a comeback is enough to keep us all spinning over.”Cameron also defended holding the 2016 Brexit referendum, which ended his premiership, saying it was “properly thought through” before the 2015 general election. The ex-PM also used his appearance to criticise decisions taken on security and aid by his successors.He said Theresa May made a “very bad mistake” allowing the role of cabinet secretary and national security adviser to be merged, with Mark Sedwill holding both roles during her tenure in Downing Street.“I think it was for instance a very bad mistake combining cabinet secretary and national security adviser – they are two jobs,” he told the committee.“For one person, even if you were a cross of Einstein, Wittgenstein and Mother Teresa, you couldn’t possibly do both jobs and I think that temporarily weakened the National Security Council.”On Boris Johnson’s decision to scrap the Department for International Development (DfID), Cameron said: “I think abolishing DfID is a mistake too for all sorts of reasons but one of which is actually having the Foreign Office voice around the (National Security Council) table and the DfID voice around the table I think is important – they are not necessarily the same thing.“Can you really expect the foreign secretary to do all of the diplomatic stuff and be able to speak to the development brief as well? That’s quite a task, so I think it is good to have both.”Related...Rishi Sunak ‘Risks Sparking ERG-Style Tory Rebellion’ If He Delays Tax HikesRevealed: Tory-Linked Private Firm Awarded Government Hotel Quarantine ContractRevealed: The MPs Who Refused To Back Boris Johnson's Brexit Trade Deal
