Gloomy Hammond Speech Falls Flat

Philip Hammond’s gloomy speech was a barely coded attack on Boris and Liam Fox, talking up the “difficulties” of Brexit, insisting we must remain “closely linked” to the EU, and talking down investment. His jokes fell flat too:

Hammond: Brexit “has created uncertainty so investment has slowed as businesses wait for clarity.” Very much NOT the DIT position

Quote of the Day

Lucy Allan explains her positive comments about the Brexit Party…

“If EU elections are held, Leave supporting voters will want to vote for Leave supporting candidates… Usual party loyalties will be eclipsed by the Leave v Remain divide. It’s good to see strong candidates in the Leave camp. However, I sincerely hope we leave the EU before these elections are held so that we can move on and not waste time and money on unnecessary EU elections.”
