Bury Business

David with Mike Flynn

I have taken the opportunity afforded by the start of the Whitsun recess this week to visit a couple more businesses in Bury. I have been to Flynn Construction and Wallwork Heat Treatment.

Flynn Construction only moved to Bury four years ago but they now employ over 100 people most of them local and it was great to meet the dynamic young entrepreneur Mike Flynn who runs the Company.

Wallwork have been based in Bury for many years and again they provide much need valuable local jobs in the private sector. It is vital for our economy in Bury that companies such as Flynn and Wallwork are encouraged and able to flourish. I was able to find out at first hand what the problems are facing these companies and the effect of Government policies on the sectors they operate in.

    Don’t keep it to yourself David, what are the problems and effects and what are you and your government doing about it?

    Is the deficit coming down?
    Err… no.
    Are we borrowing less?
    Err… no.
    Are there more jobs?
    Err… no.
    Are we getting better services?
    Err.. no.
    Is there any optimism?
    Err.. no.

    Are the rich getting richer?
    Yes!
    Are the poor getting poorer?
    yes!

    btw. we’re still waiting for your explanation of the Big Society.

    • Hi Joe,

      The deficit is being reduced but you are right that about the fact that we are still having to borrow each month to pay our way that is why it is vital that the Chancellor sticks to his plan to ensure that we do start to live within our means. More jobs are being created in the private sector. It is the private sector that produces the wealth that can be taxed and provide public services ( and pay for public sector jobs!) . I am sorry you are not optimistic about the economy – I am.

      In a few words the Big Society is about people doing their bit to help others less fortunate than themselves in Society without simply expecting the State/others to do it. Absolutely vast amounts of this is going on already and The Prime Minister wants to encourage more of it. It is a good Christian thing to do and something I am sure those of othe religions – and none – would also support.

      Best wishes,
      David
