James Cleverly’s star has risen very quickly and, the way he’s going, it will fall just as fast.

He knows that Labour’s election manifesto last year was fully-costed and self-explanatory, and the only tax increases planned within its pages were for the top five per cent of earners – people taking home more than £80,000 a year.

But he told Andrew Marr that Labour would force a tax increase on everybody in order to fund the NHS properly.

This was a lie.

It seems likely that, as a Tory MP and vice-chairman of the party, Mr Cleverly takes home more than £80k per year and simply wants to do all he can to prevent a Labour government being elected and taxing him on it.

That would be selfish, but then selfishness is the Tory way.
