‘This b****y well is political!’ says the narrator. At a Liverpool rally, Ricky Tomlinson takes aim at Boris.
Ricky Tomlinson of the lobbying organization Excluded Unity Alliance tore into Boris Johnson in a passionate address.
On Saturday, Ricky Tomlinson addressed a crowd of supporters in Derby Square, Liverpool, to advocate for the 3.8 million taxpayers who were denied financial assistance during the pandemic. Other high-profile speakers at the demonstration were Liverpool Mayor Steve Rotheram, Bill Esterson Labour MP, Ellie Phillips Showbiz Reporter, and Kim Johnson Labour MP, who made it plain that being excluded is no laughing matter.
“This damned well is political,” the Royle Family star stated at the protest.
“They’ve feathered their nest down there, and you see some of these kids that went to theater school living in digs, with no reward and doing nothing to help them.
“And the kind of society we live in, yesterday night I turned on the television and they were raising power costs by £150 a year, and you couldn’t do anything about it.
“However, if you want a handout because you’re down, because you’ve paid your taxes, because you’ve done what you’ve had to do, when you come out of work and want a little help, you won’t get anything!
“This is a political situation. We may be little in number today, but we are enormous in heart, and this is only the beginning.
“We’ll show them comedians up there in Downing Street, Boris the Buffoon, that this is just the beginning; look after our kids, our young people who want to do something they enjoy, and give them the support they deserve!”
Due to surging worldwide gas costs, the energy regulator announced it would raise the cap on the most regularly used tariffs by approximately 12-13 percent in October, causing energy prices for millions of Britons to skyrocket.
A cap on electricity and gas bills went into effect in January 2019, with the goal of addressing what former British Prime Minister Theresa May referred to as energy firms’ “rip-off” charges.
The hike was attributed to a 50% increase in wholesale energy costs over the previous six months, according to Ofgem.
In a press conference with journalists, Jonathan Brearley, the chief executive of Ofgem, said, “We can’t ask companies to sell electricity for less than it costs them to buy it.”
Consumer advocacy groups have warned about the surge. “Brinkwire News in Condensed Form.”
