You pay your debt first.
Yes, I agree with you about Foreign Aid, look after our own first.
I am in Total Agreement with you about expelling the Illegals.
Dream on, no Political Party is prepared to do this.
Corbyn even wants to bring back ISIS fighters.
Do not trust the Tories either.
Before they cam to power we found them and deported them.
May stopped this.
By cutting expenditure the debt doesn't increase with time. As for cutting taxes, if by so doing income can be increased more than the headline loss then that makes perfect sense.
However keep in mind that debt can be sold. There's times when the write off resulting from the sale of debt is worthwhile which is why banks usually sell mortgages as soon as it makes fiscal sense.
As for trusting the Conservative politicians, I'm (reluctantly) inclined to agree.
My reason is simply that I think most of them can't manage a ballance sheet. Not the basic stuff, the strategic management that - well I really don't know how to describe it, I just know how to do it (mostly!)
Sorta "when to lay 'em, when to play 'em" in a poker game.
And greed, nothing wrong with it per se, but know when it starts to take over.
There's a story about a kid working a lift in an office block. Every morning the owner came in and on the way up used to offer the kid a dollar and a dime, each morning the kid said thanks!
And took the dime.
Y'see he knew that while he took the dime it was a game. If he ever took the dollar it would no longer be a game and that would mean no more offers.
He managed his greed.
