I wish I could argue, but I can't. They're not even trying to hide it (eg, maybe we'll cut inheritance tax)
It's obvious, the #Tories are plundering everything they can before they're shown the door. And they'll leave the biggest disaster for the the next PM - and immediately attack him for it.
The ECHR forces governments to do things the right way and not take immoral short cuts. Sensible policies still happen with time.
I always ask ECHR opponents what the UK was ever stopped, permanently, from doing. Aside from the issue of the day (which is ongoing), the only answer I ever got was about the hook-handed preacher of hate.
Well, he was successfully extradited to the US. The ECHR is not the problem. Immoral, easy answer politicians are
Tory fiscal "responsibility":
- NI: insisted the rate must be raised just last year, before making a U-turn. Now cutting the rate
- Tax cuts: called a " virtual impossibility" two month ago, now a pre-election freebie
Growth: still zero
In tax: shhh, the income "windfall" is from millions of lower wage workers paying MORE at higher rates
BBC News - Autumn Statement: Hunt chose NI cuts over 'crowd-pleasing' measures
People with #mobility and #mentalhealth condiitions should be #working from home or lose #benefits under new #UK #policy. The #ToriesUnfitToGovern have no idea about #disability. They drop to a new low everyday. People who are able to #work would #wfh if suitable #jobs were available. Many of these jobs require #travel or some days in the #office, all day on a #phone & most require specific #qualifications & #experience. There really isn't a magic #job tree. #disabled
Of course #JeremyHunt needs to protect and reduce #InheritenceTax it has no impact on the government coffers unlike Maggie working 40hrs a week in a care home. SHE caused the highest #inflation since WWII OBVIOUSLY.
Don’t look at the #NonDom nothing to see there.
Just imagining the Sophie's Choice dilemma faced by #JeremyHunt
Do I help the 4% of the public who pay Inheritance Tax, who are my donors and personal friends
Or, do I keep £2B coming to the Treasury, or maybe use that to expand benefits during a #CostOfLivingCrisis
Oh dear, what #ToryDifficultDecisions 🤣🤣🤣
Has someone had a word? Realisation seems to be setting in - you cannot simply add the word ‘nonwithstanding’ and override all the relatives, agreements and settled law of this country, because an ex-minister wants it.

Another example of #ToryDeclaratoryPolitics
For years, we heard of "40 new hospitals", then not quite 40 and not quite new. Now even the new target will be missed
Normal governments would take a unimous rejection by their Supreme Court as chance to rethink their approach
BBC News - Rishi Sunak says Rwanda merry-go-round must end
This is well worth attending if you think our future is should be in better hands than WM - which is now officially inhumane, after the Rwanda deportation project was rejected by the Supreme Court today.
I don't understand. Is she saying she broke ranks with the rest of the #government and actually did some #work? Seems unlikely. Just guessing that the #cigars and #alcohol intake had something to do with it...
We all knew his bumbling affect was an act and underneath #BorisJohnson was a bigger piece of shit the #TorySewageParty allows to be dumped. At lease this finally confirms it all.
I don't use this word to describe people, but in this case everyone one of them involved is #ToryScum
Far right #SuellaBraverman to quiz the Met about a single protestor's chant and calls on them: "to crack down on anyone breaking the law"
Anyone under 30: UK rents at highest rate ever and the climate will soon kill millions. What will you do?
Tory Conference: No trains, delay net zero and we'll phase out smoking.
Another day of the #Tory conference gets under way & who know what lies, extremism & insults will flow from the podium(s) today... but we know what it all adds up to.
What is extraordinary is that the #Tories are still polling in positive figures at all... but perhaps that tells us what we need to know about the political problems in the UK (and the continuing influence of our toxic-rightist #media).
Another Tory minister
In another breach of the Ministerial Code
So, #Brexit will cost an extra £330M
Very true … and while 13+ years of Tory austerity have been bad enough, imo the #NeoLiberals & #NeoFascists (viz Bravernan) in power now are fully aware that they are gonna be wiped out at the next GE & are deliberately wageing a ‘scorched earth’ policy to make life for an incoming #RedTory government under #KidStarver as nigh-on impossible as they can!
It’s obvious to anyone on the Left, however, that Starmer & his Shadow Cabinet of nondescripts & no-hopers haven’t between them got a radical neuron in their collective frontal cortices! In all likelihood they will fail abysmally & open the way for the Far Right to come to power!
Very sad to say this but … we’re f#cked! Not so @UKLabour?
Tories Lies Debunked: There's no magic money tree
...unless your 4th PM in 6 years tanks the economy
...or you want to write off £4B in PPE frauds to your mates
...or there's an issue in schools you've been ignoring and now it's public
The Met is, quite rightly, shifting mental health work to the NHS. What resources have the gov given the #NHS for the additional workload?
Again, the UK public need to ask ... Why have for-profit healthcare companies built excess capacity in a 100% free, universal healthcare system?
It can ONLY be with foreknowledge that the Tories would underfund the #NHS and shift demand to private profiteers.
Seems someone in the No 10 Comma Office realised it's a better headline to be working for more #NHS staff than fighting to deport refugees to Rwanda.
Still, it's just another bit of declaratory politics from the party that has no interest in saving the NHS. Too little. Too late. Too unbelievable.

BBC News - 'Historic' 15-year plan to boost NHS workforce
Waiting for Tory "anti-woke" warriors to defend this "cancelled" man.
Jacob Rees-Mogg policy blocks 25-year industry expert from gov event for tweeting Tory-critical comments.
… and today’s Tory scandal is …
Tories determine to crush Scottish devolution. Claiming a bottle return scheme threatens the UK internal market shows a stunning ignorance of similar state-level programs in the USA.
