Bexleyheath and Crayford MP David Evennett praises Budget for businesses

News Shopper: Bexleyheath and Crayford MP David Evennett has welcomed the proposals Bexleyheath and Crayford MP David Evennett has welcomed the proposals

BEXLEYHEATH and Crayford MP David Evennett has applauded the Chancellor’s autumn statement for helping local businesses.

George Osborne announced plans on Thursday (Dec 5) to boost the High Street with financial incentives.

Proposals include giving businesses in rateable properties of less than £50,000 a £1,000 discount in their rates.

Meanwhile, companies which take over empty shop premises will see a reduction in business rates while the planned rise to business rates will be reduced to two per cent.

Mr Evennett said: "Some 5,000 businesses in Bexley will benefit as a result of the action we are taking to help the High Street.

"By freezing fuel duty again, petrol will be 20p a litre cheaper than it would have been under Labour.

"Pensioners are benefiting from the Conservatives’ commitment to providing real increases in the state pensions and there is further action to help young people to find jobs."

Well Mr Evenett, you should take a trip to Bexleyheath. Yes lots of empty shops, since Leader O'Neill and her gang. Embarked on It's mad road layout, for Bexleyheath.

The idea of reduced rates to take over empty shops, well whats the result of this?. Well let's tell you, shops will then move to an empty shop a few doors down. The result will mean, yes an empty shop is being used. However the shop that has been moved from is then empty!. It's called clever thinking, this is already happening.

It's these people that have these silly ideas, that have not thought them through. However do they have a brain?.

"Pensioners are benefiting from the Conservatives’ commitment to providing real increases in the state pensions" did I read that properly ? what the hell are you talking about, I will be 69 years old by the time you give me a state pension, most of my family have died between 66 and 71, so on that basis you should (if I'm lucky) only have to give me 2 years pittance, sorry, pension when I retire.
Being committed to doing something and doing it are two different things, you've been in power a few years now, so if you had started off being "committed" to giving the oldies a good pension, then they would've had one by now, no me thinks an election is appearing on the horizon so the caring sharing hat is being placed firmly on the heads of our loving parliamentarians.
You may not know this but most of the people understand that MP's are human too, and aren't apposed to a bit of self gain in life,( we still ain't forgot...and won't forget, the great "expenses fleecing" we had to endure a few years back) but to promise financial help to the most vulnerable and desperate voters on your books time after time, but never actually give them that help is low, even by MP's standards.
No I think you should stop promising us the world when you need our vote, and treat us with contempt all the time, we will still vote someone in power on election day, and who knows, you might be lucky...and at the very least you can say you were being honest!

I won't be voting for you again Mr Evennett, UKIP all the way now. Why not impose a heavy tax on the millions of foreigner workers in this country
