New PM puts multi-millionaire tax dodger in charge of the economy

Tom Pride here gives the long list of greed, incompetence and absolute contempt for the general public in the actions of the new Chancellor of the Exchequer, Philip Hammond. It’s almost unnecessary to state that he was another, who claimed for just about everything he could on expenses and dodges tax, because there have been so many MPs doing it. And then he almost manages to scupper the deal giving us a nuclear peace with the Iranians, by stupidly giving it the thumbs up, not realising that it’s an obscene gesture over there. It’s also considered obscene in many other countries as well, including Africa. And Rifkind and Clark thought Boris was the one to have us waging three different wars at once.

Pride's Purge


Our new chancellor, Philip Hammond, may be the wealthiest member of the cabinet, but he’s not known for his diplomacy.

For example, most MPs who were caught claiming massive amounts of dosh on expenses for things like unnecessary second homes (and in Hammond’s case teaspoon collections) immediately apologised profusely to taxpayers and offered to pay the money back.

Not, however, boorish multi-millionaire Hammond – who was so oblivious to public anger he said he would continue claiming for his second home until the rules changed.

And when he was once asked by journalists about a tax dodging scheme he was accused of being involved in, he undiplomatically snapped: “What has it got to do with you?

As transport minister, Hammond’s diplomatic acumen was no sharper. He ignored 200 years of cycling history and offended millions of cyclists by trying to officially eliminate the popular activity as a form of transport.
