Still Flying Somewhere
Over, and over, and over again, Rishi Sunak talked about "taxpayers' money", all the while announcing policies that depended on his perfectly correct understanding that there was in fact no such thing.
All that, and Tory Boy boilerplate about the Red Ensign and what have you. In both categories is Richard Holden's cut in the duty on draught beer, a very welcome move and a hugely popular one. Sunak wants to be Prime Minister even more than Gordon Brown did.
And would there have been a real terms increase for every Department under Keir Starmer and Rachel Reeves? That question answers itself. Any remaining Thatcherites should vote Labour.
