Tory crumbles under cross examination over Budget

Last Updated: March 17, 2023By Tags: , , , , , , ,

John Glen, Tory Chief Secretary to the Treasury, got badly mauled when he tried to dissemble about the Budget in an interview with Victoria Derbyshire on the BBC’s Newsnight.

He couldn’t explain why it was a “Budget for growth” when medium-term growth forecasts have been downgraded.

And on the effects of Brexit, challenged to admit that it has made the UK poorer, he could not provide an alternative explanation for what has happened since the country left the European Union.

He crumbled under scrutiny.

Watch this car crash interview and understand why Tory leadership has taken the UK nowhere.

    it should be obvious that if you give affluent pensioners a better deal on pensions they’ll cut their hours and retire earlier – not work for longer!

    Chancellor Hunt has a first class honour degree, how can he be so mistaken?

    I am fed up with being told People were given a choice and they voted to leave. ‘they’ should be replaced by ‘a minority’ because it was a minority.
