  • The Boris Johnson thread

    Boris Johnson plans to increase the minimum wage.

    Low-paid workers will receive a 6.2 per cent rise from next April as Boris Johnson seeks to shore up support among working class voters who helped deliver him a thumping victory in this month’s general election.

    The government said it was delivering the “biggest cash increase ever” as it announced plans to lift the national living wage for workers aged over 25 from £8.21 an hour to £8.72. In the previous three years, the rise in minimum wage varied between 4.2 per cent and 4.8 per cent.

    “Hard work should always pay, but for too long, people haven’t seen the pay rises they deserve,” said Mr Johnson in a statement released by the Treasury. The rise in the national live wage corresponds to a £930 increase in annual earnings for a 35-hours-a-week worker compared with the current rate. When compared with the fiscal year ending in March 2016, the increase adds up to £3,680 in additional annual earnings, according to the Treasury.

      Economic collapse incoming, firstfloor!!!

      BORIS Johnson today signed Britain's EU divorce deal officially bringing an end to the Brexit saga.

      The Prime Minister proudly declared it a "fantastic moment" as he put pen to paper to seal the deal at Downing Street.

      Mr Johnson added he hoped it "brings to an end to far too many years of argument and division" after the Withdrawal Agreement finally passed through parliament this week.

      He said: "We can now move forward as one country – with a Government focused upon delivering better public services, greater opportunity and unleashing the potential of every corner of our brilliant United Kingdom, while building a strong new relationship with the EU as friends and sovereign equals."

      The leaders of the EU's top two institutions also signed the papers today - almost in private - with no media allowed to witness the historic moment.
