Open Letter for the attention of the Prime Minister on matters of national economic crisis, resolving nationwide fuel/energy poverty, addressing urgent challenges to the National Health Service, erasing the heavy burden of taxation on the British public and taking advantage of the tremendous economic opportunities post-BREXIT to transform the United Kingdom into a new economic superpower with immediate effect through new investment, employment and growth for all communities, North, South, East and West.
(Originally presented to Prime Minister Boris Johnson, and retained here for the attention of subsequent Prime Ministers until accepted and approved to revive the British people, society and state.)
£2.4 Trillion Structural Recovery Fund
Government Borrowing NOT Required
Date: Thursday, the 24th of February, 2022
F.A.O.: Rt Hon. Mr Boris Johnson, M.P., The Prime Minister

Dear Mr Johnson,
Just a brief note, at this time of tremendous crisis, to remind you of the £2.4 trillion Structural Fund awaiting your action and approval for delivery to the Treasury.
As you may recall this is a transformational strategy fund I proposed to deliver through the Treasury for government use, sufficient to wipe the national debt and offer you a clean slate to relaunch Britain as a bold, innovative and visionary economy post-BREXIT. Now that, this year, Britain and the British people face huge social and economic crises effecting every family and business, and in light of the new, urgent international crisis over Ukraine and its likely effects on the UK public, I’ve been prompted to remind you that this funding remains available today and can be delivered with relatively immediate effect, subject to all government approvals being granted to make delivery.
I know these are busy, difficult and trying times and it’s perhaps difficult to recall my proposals to deliver the Structural Fund to the government. Here is a brief reminder of some of the current domestic issues it will address today.
NHS Funding Crisis
I do not know why the Chancellor and Treasury felt a need to raise National Insurance contributions and impose such a heavy burden on ordinary working people when the Structural Fund could easily be unwrapped to encompass and solve the crisis of funding, staffing and resources throughout the NHS. Additionally, reflecting on this crisis in recent weeks, I see the potential of my alternative public-private sector partnership delivering a dedicated rescue package without burdening the public with more taxation. As for the idea of a so-called “Windfall Tax” on large businesses being touted around by some activists. This is an equally unnecessary burden when there is far more funding available today from the Structural Fund.
Similarly, drawing on my interests in the field of architecture and urban design, an extension of that public-private sector partnership could deliver on your government’s commitment to up to fifty new/state-of-the-art 21st Century hospitals to help meet the massive new burdens brought on by the COVID crisis, for the current NHS challenges and the long term effects on the country’s general health and well-being.
Overall I believe up to £70 billion can be made available for the NHS as an immediate emergency reboot to revive this vital public service. Remember, this is nothing like the old PFI (Private Finance Initiative) burden dropped on the shoulders of the NHS by the last Labour government. It is a partnership evolving from my broader interests in these sectors – the new strategy pays for the hospitals not the public purse. It’s worth noting that this is equivalent to the promised £350 million a week to the NHS post-BREXIT over the next four years.
Now, Spring 2022, we face a new and equally devastating economic crisis for the entire country after COVID and the country’s recent agonies with the energy price catastrophe, likely to be made worse with the Ukraine crisis. Again my Structural Fund could bail the country out temporarily while my strategies for long term investment in sustainable domestic power generation, especially the large-scale offshore generators, are put into place.
Following up on my original proposals to you, Britain could become energy independent and solve the majority of fuel poverty within a decade, faster if you permit me to work at full urgent pace without conventional unnecessary restraints. With your approvals and my release to action we could become a major energy generator and exporter to the EU with a few years; but this is an opportunity to energy leadership which must be taken up now before we loose it to our competitors, especially as they are being forced to adapt to the Ukraine crisis today.
Economic Regeneration & Rebirth – Levelling-up
There is far more to the plan beyond the Structural Fund. Today, mired in deep social, environmental, economic crisis, it appears, seen from outside, as if Britain is broken beyond repair but I believe there is vastly more potential to be unleashed and lead Britain forward to a spectacular world of good health, justice and prosperity for all.
You have promoted your vision of levelling-up for Britain. To me this is a process of leadership, vision and investment to lift everyone, in Britain and the world, up and out of poverty, ignorance and despair, to invest in our talents and potential and achieve a new healthier and wealthier world for all and the benefit of all.
I hope now you and the rest of the government will see that this is the time to accept the benefits from my Structural Fund and set Britain on a new course to become an economic superpower of the 21st century.
Let me free to act today, with the full approval and active support of the government and all relevant agencies, as a matter of urgent national crisis. Cutting through traditional bureaucracy and red tape it will take approximately ten days to implement the necessary arrangements, transfer the first round of funds into Treasury, potentially several hundred thousand million pounds awaiting your approvals, and begin changing Britain forever. Let this now be a time of renewal and fortune.

And Britain has had a new Prime Minister voted into power today. No change here as the core themes of the Fund and its offer to the government remain valid. Other strategies than awaiting the PM’s attention are being explored. Minor amendments for clarification and the latest crises.
