Another Tory policy bites the dust. Do they have ANY left?

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.

    Problem is that the Tories have spent so much time and money on rectifying mistakes from their bad policies that they have run out of ideas and resources to create any new ones – hence the recent pleading for new ideas.

    The money spent on solicitors fees alone from arrogant failed appeal after failed appeal could have gone a long way to at least pay some of the interest on the ever increasing deficit.

    My suggestion would be to actually listen to the electorate and get it right first time !

    “My suggestion would be to actually listen to the electorate and get it right first time !”
    Is this not the Tories, all over? How many times have we heard the expression “we are listening” long after the event? The N.H.S. White Paper was a very good example. Why not, if they have a policy idea, approach focus groups, or some such? Do Tory M.P.s not hold surgery? Do they not have communication with their constituents? how can it be that so much of what they utter bears no resemblance to anything that relates to the lives and experiences of everyday, ordinary people in this country? What are they paid for? What are they elected to do? Do they know? If any of them bothered to listen to the people of this country, they might be a better party and form better government. They seem to have forgotten why they are there and what their purpose is. I do love they way that they talk about not piling up debts for our children and grandchildren but it is perfectly okay to pile those debts onto others who are neither responsible for them, nor have the mean s whit which to pay them off! Hypocrisy, or mere incompetence? and they have the gall to say the £abour is financially illiterate!
    If they want decent policy ideas, they should talk to the people whom they were elected to govern! They can start by getting rid of Jeremy Hunt!
