Seems strange that a financial institution from a country that isn't leaving the EU is cutting jobs...

New govt slides on objectives for UK/EU trade deal.
Refers to "Legal protection for workers that keeps pace with the changing labour market" That's different from the manifesto promise of *not lowering* those employment law standards which derive from EU law. https://t.co/0NsL0V0qL7

Bad management for years. They're going to cut in the UK too.

Watching the Thursday evening political debate programs.

Several commentators are saying that they understand the government is finalising a plan that will see a 3% real terms increase in annual NHS spending over the next 5 (or possibly 10) years. Apparently, this plan will be announced in June/July - the Treasury is finalising the detail, so they say.

If NHS spending is increased by 3% per year in real terms for the next 10 years (compounded), over that 10 years, NHS spending will have increased on average by a shade under £350m per week!

Now wouldn't that be thoroughly amusing!! :D

This is not a joke by the way. It was mentioned as serious rumour on QT and by Andrew Neil on This Week

Gove and Johnson also looking for the same increase in funding for their department.

Hammond says he can't commit to any medium/long term budget increases. This debate ended before it even got to QT or Andrew Neil lol.

You might be right; I guess we’ll see soon enough.

But let’s be serious, the Environment Secretary (Gove) will not be expecting an additional £350m a week for his department!

Anyway, I’m just repeating what was said on both programs.

I get that, but this was rebutted pretty soon after these statements but that bit wasn't reported? Seems odd.

Might have filled up the Brexit fund a bit quicker than they anticipated and there's some spare dosh floating about for the short term.

They can promise whatever they want in 10 years. They know they'll lose the election after Brexit, so can blame Labour for not implementing these massive increases in funding

I don't think they know anything of the sort.

Despite this calamitous government's performance since the election, the Tories are ahead in the polls and Corbyn's personal ratings are declining. Corbyn has a rock hard base, but it would seem that it's not very deep.

I think the next government is still likely to be a Tory one.

Indeed, but what government is going to repeal that 3% pa rise in NHS spending? It would be political suicide; particularly when Labour have made such a big noise about increasing NHS spending.
