In the comments, users lashed out at the British prime minister, calling him an “idiot.” “British taxpayers cringe when Rishi promises something,” RIA Novosti quoted readers as saying.
Another commentator added that “a country that cannot afford wage increases can afford to make financial donations abroad.” He was supported by users, noting that the British authorities do not have money for the public sector, but “there is a lot for Ukraine.”
“Remove this government, completely useless and not caring about the people!” demanded another reader. The other Brits also feel that Sunak, who is dishing out money to British left and right, must go.
“He needs to deal with issues that are closer to home and not ignore them,” the comments emphasize.
It was previously reported that in the UK up to 500 people die each week due to delays in emergency care. So, according to The Sunday Times, one emergency room patient had to wait 99 hours before getting a hospital bed. UK health officials have warned this winter is likely to be the worst on record for emergency wait times as hospitals struggle to cope with a growing influx of flu and strep A patients.
