Will the Chancellor be the next politician to sacrifice his career for the good of the country? From the look of this pic, he’s lining up a new career doing impressions of Peter Capaldi [Image: PA.]


It’s for the best.

This Writer agrees with the sentiment behind the article excerpted below, although some of the possibilities outlined in the full article (click on the link) seem a little outlandish. See for yourself.

It may be too early to write Philip Hammond’s political obituary, and with the Budget little more than a month away, his career probably won’t expire in two weeks.

But with the gallows under construction, one turns to Samuel Johnson’s over-quoted line: that when a man knows he is to be hanged in a fortnight, it concentrates his mind wonderfully.

If he does anticipate being fired after the Budget, it might concentrate his mind wonderfully on an unwontedly sensationalist departure.

If he sees no deal as the gravest threat to British prospects; if he is convinced that we are entering a cataclysmic dive towards WTA tariffs, grounded aircraft and anarchy at the ports; if he believes that this is an existential issue massively dwarfing the trivial demands of tribal loyalty he should design his Budget to bring down the Government before the Government brings down the country.
