Claiming On The Insurance
The promise not to raise income tax, National Insurance or VAT has appeared appeared in all 11 Conservative manifestos of my lifetime.
It has also appeared in five of the seven Labour manifestos of my adult lifetime, before which Labour had last won a General Election before I had been born.
Invariably elected on that commitment, no Government has ever been able to honour it. It is time to start treating voters like grownups.
