Young Tory MPs blame 'lazy' baby boomers for Britain's economic decline
A group of rising young Conservative MPs claims that 'idle' British workers are damaging the economy by failing to compete with 'grafting' Asian countries.
Mr Kwarteng said: “We need to look beyond Europe for economic success. We should be starting now. There is no reason why we can’t be pushing ahead with a lot of this.
“Boris, when he talks about big infrastructure projects, deregulation and cutting taxes, is absolutely on the money.”
In the book, the group also claim that the country is being dragged down by support by baby boomers in their 60s and 70s for higher taxes in order to fund their pensions and live in comfort.
Asked if the group represented a new force within the Conservative Party, Mr Kwarteng told the London Evening Standard: “There is definitely a new Right which is much more international in its focus. The old Tory Right are a busted flush.”
A No 10 spokesman said: “The Government is working hard to get on top of our deficits and rebalance the economy.
“We’ve got the lowest corporation taxes in the G7, have announced huge investment in transport and infrastructure, as well as an £8O billion funding for lending scheme, and there will be more in due course.”
NWN: Isn't this racist ?
Why are Africa and most of Asia fly infested poverty ridden hell holes if their workers are that good ? And why are they all coming over here ? The 'baby boomers' biggest mistake was to 'allow' the Kwami Kartengs of the world to enter the UK in massive numbers.
