Osborne Breaks £1.7 Billion Promise

Last autumn, Osborne claimed he had forced Brussels to cut in half the £1.7 billion “prosperity tax” Britain had been billed by the EU, promising he had secured a “better deal” and that he had got a “result for Britain“. At the time the PM called the original bill “appalling” and “completely unacceptable“.

Eurosceptics and hard-working taxpayers alike will be furious at this capitulation to Brussels. If Labour are going to be any sort of opposition whatsoever, this is the sort of thing their new Brexit-backing leader should be leading on at PMQs…
