Alok Sharma was asked about the cut, which was revealed in the OBR’s most recent annual report, in a written parliamentary question by Labour.

I’m interested to know how Alok Sharma imagines self-employed people like myself are to “grow their earnings and become more productive and self-sufficient” in the current economic climate?

Tory policies punish the self-employed. The government works hard to ensure that all the money goes to the current vested interests. They don’t like entrepreneurs.

They put obstacles in the way of the self-employed.

This cut is a visible example of that.

A Tory minister was branded “insensitive” … after boasting a £3,000 benefits cut can lead to a ”good outcome”.

Alok Sharma was accused of “patronising” hundreds of thousands of people losing out from new benefit Universal Credit.

Mr Sharma claimed it would “incentivise” the self-employed “to grow their earnings and become more productive and self-sufficient.”
