If a cabinet minister doesn’t understand that George Osborne’s cuts to PIP aren’t “proposals” but are firm plans, what does that say about the rest of the Tories?
Vacant-headed ‘Thicky Nicky’ Morgan – who, unbelievably, is the Secretary of State for Education – has been trying to tell us that Osborne’s plan to cut PIP payments by £1.2 billion a year is just a “suggestion” and is “under consultation”.
Didn’t anybody tell her that the consultation has been and gone and the government has responded to it?
Osborne probably sent her out to tell us any old tripe, in the hope that we’d look into her wide, staring, guileless eyes and believe it.
All he has done is confirm what an imbecile she is.
Education Secretary Nicky Morgan described the plan as a “suggestion” and said it was “under consultation”.
But sources close to Work and Pensions Secretary Iain Duncan Smith said her comments don’t “tally with what we and Downing Street are saying”.
The BBC was told Mrs Morgan didn’t “seem to understand” the proposals.
