Useless and out-of-touch Chancellor Phillip Hammond this morning warmed up for this week’s Budget by reminding us all just how useless and out of touch he is.
Asked on this morning’s Marr show about unemployment, Hammond claimed:
There are no unemployed people.
Marr had to remind him of the facts:
This Tory, who is supposed to be managing the nation’s finances, can’t tell the difference between zero and 1.4 million.
We have a Chancellor who is so remote and heartless that he ‘forgets’ 1.4 million unemployed people who – along with our disabled, our vulnerable and the huge numbers of working poor – are suffering appalling hardship.
If anyone thinks Hammond is going to announce a budget this week designed to do any more than fake an improvement in their situation, they need to watch this video over and over until the scales fall from their eyes and they resolve never, ever to even think of voting Tory again.
