Boris Johnson will promise to level up Britain by bringing employment and skills to Red Wall areas to stop the brain drain to the cities.
Under plans which will be outlined in the Queen’s speech, the prime minister will pledge to live local and prosper in a bid to improve numerous regions which believe they’ve been left behind.
Tuesday’s speech will also outline strategies to tackle the NHS operations backlog caused by the pandemic.
As part of his stratagems to thank the voters who’ve seen him preside over a flourishing series of local elections despite 11 years of Tory rule, Boris Johnson will introduce a Skills and Post 16 Education Bill on Wednesday.
A news outlet reported that the bill will get local employers to work with further education colleges to deliver a skills accelerator programme.
Under the new policies, people who want to study part-time will have greater access to universities and colleges.
The approach is a significant change from past Conservative governments who promoted leaving your home town to look for work in London and economic hubs.
Boris Johnson instead wants to create more local aspiration by giving people more opportunities where they already live.
A senior government source said that there’s going to be an extensive investment in further education and lifelong upskilling so people can take on better-paid jobs in their local area and that some people would want to move for work but this was an investment in communities so people could flourish where they live.
Concerning the situation in the NHS, Boris Johnson predicted it would get worse before it got better with a current care waiting list of 4.7 million people.
In Tuesday’s address, the prime minister will promise an additional £63 billion this year and £22 billion next year to the health service while admitting more money was needed to cut down the backlog.
His promises come after Boris Johnson completed an incredible electoral hat trick to heap more misery on Sir Keir Starmer’s Labour.
The Conservative Andy Street romped home to remain mayor of the West Midlands, beating former minister Liam Byrne in a vote that the opposition had aspirations of winning.
It comes after victories in Hartlepool by-election for Jill Mortimer and mayoral vote in the Tees Valley by Ben Houchen to complete a powerful display for the governing party 11 years into its tenure.
Of course, this is another Tory promise which will probably never happen, although, you never know, it might happen, especially if the Tories want to keep the red wall down.
But it seems that only some jobs were considered, and the city was top of the pile, and local jobs outside of London were considered unviable, in favour of support for London, and people were expected to move where the jobs were when they should have created jobs equally dispersed throughout the land.
The result was an overpopulated London and encompassing regions, but the North of Watford was a deserted wasteland, and Boris Johnson must treat UK citizens more fairly and move jobs more equitably because it’s wrong that the United Kingdom should be divided.
And the Tories impoverished the North by destroying its industries, and we can’t just blame Northerners for this because you can’t just magic jobs out of nothing when it’s been policy over the last 50 years to focus all private investment into the city of London, and if you want a well-paid job you have to move to London, and if all the regions lose their bright young people, it’s no wonder that the North has been left behind.
