And of course cutting the costs that everybody else faces, families up and down the country. And I think if we go forward with that approach, continuing to unite and level up, which is a magnificent agenda, totally the right agenda for the country, but also driving supply side reform, driving improvement, we will start to see huge, huge changes, beneficial changes in our economy.
