Philip Hammond shot himself in the foot on the BBC’s Today show – so badly that he may be removed as Chancellor (or shadow chancellor) in any future Theresa May Conservative Party.

After lambasting the Labour manifesto launch, claiming the figures “don’t add up”, Mr Hammond got the cost of HS2 badly wrong – in fact, the project will cost nearly double the £32 billion he was claiming.
