Energy Minister Eviscerates Labour’s VAT Motion

Greg Hands delivered the appropriately named winding-up speech to Labour’s opposition motion, in which he absolutely slammed them for playing “student politics”, and focussing on procedural trickery rather than policy amending. Among the best quotes were:

  • This is a student union tactic which they well-rehearsed during the Brexit years”
  • With the departure for the member of Islington North as leader of the Labour Party I thought it might have a return to serious opposition politics”
  • They have completely lost the plot into their own world of procedural gobbledygook”
