Boris Johnson flounders on Tory tax rises at Prime Minister’s Questions

Sulk, Johnson, sulk: his flailing performance in Prime Minister’s Questions didn’t convince anybody.

UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson fell apart completely while being questioned about his government’s tax rises in Prime Minister’s Questions today (March 30, 2022).

He said he has cut fuel duty – but prices have not come down to affordable levels.

He said he was cutting Income Tax – but that won’t happen until 2024 and is an election bribe.

He has imposed 15 tax rises – the highest tax burden in 70 years.

For every £6 taken, he’s giving only £1 back.

In response to questioning, Johnson lied that Covid-19 was responsible for his tax rises, not him, and resorted to claiming that his nonexistent Health and Social Care levy – the money from his 10 per cent National Insurance rise is already being used for other things – was what the Opposition doesn’t want.

Pressed on these issues, Johnson fell to fantasy, making wild claims about what another government might do, and lying that oil and gas companies are investing their enormous profits in ensuring the UK has long-term energy supplies (they aren’t).

See for yourself:

This was an open goal that even Keir Starmer couldn’t miss.
