Inflation: Raab gives the game away – the Tories don’t care

Clueless: Dominic Raab, doing his best Tim Nice-But-Dim impression. Oh no, wait: that’s what he’s really like (apart from the “nice” bit).

Dominic Raab was never the sharpest tool in the Tory box and now he has proved what a blunt instrument he is.

Interviewed on Channel 4, he said there was no need to do anything about the cost of living crisis, and predictions of inflation hitting 22 per cent – because it hasn’t happened yet.

What a dunce. If it happens, nothing the Tory government does will save millions of people from poverty and, in extreme cases, death.

But who cares about him? He supports Rishi Sunak to be prime minister and it’s pretty much a foregone conclusion now that he won’t be.

Instead, we’ll have Liz Truss, whose plan to sort out inflation is: tax cuts.

And all the economic experts say tax cuts won’t work.

Here’s a clip analysing the issue:

Let’s hope that, if Sunak does lose, Raab disappears into political limbo with him.

But I fear it may be a forlorn hope as he’s an old pal of Truss (they were co-authors of that nightmarish blueprint for Tory rule, Britannia Unchained).

    The tories are a criminal Cartel! They belong in prison, not in government willfully destroying Britain for personal gain!

    Dunce Dominic Raab has the same lack of intelligence as his fellow fascist tories – they are all incapable of governing because it is beyond their capabilities! So Raab inflation hasn’t reached 22%, so everything in fascist tories’ lives is fine!

    Your fascist tories said the same about the coronavirus pandemic – ‘no need to have sufficient PPE stored in warehouses because little england hasn’t had a pandemic for decades!’ Then when little england suffered Coronavirus the fascist tories threw their hands in the air and said ‘goody now we can profit by giving our greedy bros worthless contracts to sell useless PPE! There’s always a profit out of disasters and we fascist tories are the experts on creating disasters!’
