The Telegraph pleads:
Boris and Javid must kill these ridiculous, unconservative tax plans
It is starting to feel as if Treasury mandarins have forgotten who won the election. They have been busy in the past few weeks dusting off every absurd anti-Tory and anti-supply side idea cooked up by Left‑wing think tanks and technocrats these past 20 years, and trying to convince the Chancellor and the Government to adopt them …
Mr Johnson and Mr Javid must make sure they never see the light of day.
This reminds me of those pitiful Gulag inhabitants who genuinely thought that all these innocent people were being put away without the knowledge of Stalin. “If only Stalin knew he would stop all this. Please comrade, somebody get word to him, for Lenin’s sake, and he can send us all home.”
