Don’t cry, Mrs May. Every Conservative policy that you throw away means a better Britain in the future!

And nobody would bother consoling you anyway.

Tory plans to hike self-employed workers’ tax are now dead in the water, a top minister has confirmed.

Damian Green, Theresa May’s right-hand man, admitted “we won’t be revisiting that” when asked about his boss’s failed bid to hike Class 4 National Insurance on the self-employed from 9% to 11%.

The move was scrapped after just a few days when its inclusion in this year’s budget prompted a Tory outcry.

Mrs May had paved the way to bring it back if she won a strong majority, repeatedly refusing to rule it out.

But just like the dementia tax, grammar schools, fox hunting, raids on free school meals and other Tory policies, it’s been ditched indefinitely.
