WHOSE side is the Westminster Government on?

A question that arises as we approach the end of October. The furlough scheme is ending, plunging thousands into job insecurity and possible redundancy, with no equivalent scheme put in place. The deadline looms (end of October) for applications for mortgage holidays, again plunging many into insecurity. Those two enormous elements of daily living, presenting such insecurity for thousands is a tragedy.

But with Westminster, it does not stop there, October also presents the deadline to secure a Brexit deal, allowing time for ratification, a deal that will be vital for our economy, trading and future employment – begging the question, whose side is the Westminster Government on?
