Chancellor’s Budget splurge reveals media hypocrisy

It seems Rishi Sunak has announced spending worth £640 billion in his Budget speech on Tuesday – to rapturous applause from the Tory-supporting media.

That’s £140 billion more than the £500 billion offered by Jeremy Corbyn and John McDonnell in their Labour election manifesto last year – that the same media voices ridiculed in a (successful) bid to get more people to vote for the Tories.

What has changed in less than four months, to make the Tory offer praiseworthy when Labour’s was dangerously reckless?

And where’s the money coming from, that wasn’t available before?

That’s what they’re asking on the social media:


And doesn’t this announcement prove the truth of this comment?

Have YOU donated to my crowdfunding appeal, raising funds to fight false libel claims by TV celebrities who should know better? These court cases cost a lot of money so every penny will help ensure that wealth doesn’t beat justice.
