THE budget confirms that the Tories are now a soft, leftish of centre party.

The proper left is now the domain of Labour and the Lib Dems.

Who will fill the now empty right sector? Or has our country thankfully abandoned the greed is good politics of the past?

Labour’s budget response ‘hypocritical’

LABOUR’S Shadow Chancellor John McDonnell’s response to the budget was a classic example of how hypocrisy comes naturally to some politicians.

Had he given the same speech he would have been seen and heard from every media outlet claiming how he alone had rescued the nation from further Tory cuts after ten years of hardship and austerity.

Both he and Corbyn belittle the intelligence of those they purport to represent.
