That didn't take long - Chaotic Tory U-Turn

That's right. It's only been 7 days since Philip Hammond unleashed his haphazard and unfair budget. 7 days since Theresa May's Conservative government announced that it planned to scrap it's manifesto promise of not increasing National Insurance.

Speaking to the Welwyn Hatfield Times, Cllr Kieran Thorpe told the paper "This shambolic U-turn demonstrates the new Chancellor is no less clumsy than the last. “Spreadsheet Phil” as he is known certainly has failed to excel with this budget.

This Tory government is no different from the last, just as ham-fisted with policy announcements, just as damaging to the livelihoods of ordinary working people.”
