Yet Another Screeching Tory U-Turn: But Who Will Pay For It?

The Tories latest attack on "hard-working Britain" lasted just a few hours shy of one week. 7 days of confusion and delusion that's now synonymous with the Theresa May's Conservative government. In a hastily written letter, Hammond told fellow Tory MPs In a letter to Conservative MPs it was "clear that compliance with the 'legislative' test of the Manifesto commitment is not adequate". He added: "In light of what has emerged as a clear view among colleagues and a significant section of the public, I have decided not to proceed with Class 4 NIC measures set out in the Budget."

Well what a nice guy Philip Hammond really is. One Tory MP was in a state of bewilderment saying he has spent the last week defending the N.I hike to his angry constituents, and now Hammond has performed another u-turn, he's going to look rather stupid. You think he would be used to that feeling by now?

To give you a rough idea where we are with the Tories right now: 

We have an NHS on its knees, quite literally. We even have Richard Branson's VirginCare taking legal proceedings against the NHS, because they didn't win a contract! Boo-bloody-hoo Mr Branson.

School funding is to be cut for the first time in 20 years. 

We are sailing towards an EU exit at a rapid rate of knots, does this government have a plan if we can't strike a reasonable deal? Here's David Davis admitting they haven't done any economic assessment of Britain leaving the EU without a deal! 

The Prisons are in total crisis with 7 years of Tory cuts leading to the closure of 18 prisons and 14% of them are now privatised, ran by the likes of the extraordinarily useless G4S and Serco. 

We have the fantastic WASPI women fighting for fair pensions - why the hell should they have to fight for this? 

18-21 year olds will no longer receive any form of Housing Benefit - the Tories pushed through this controversial law and will come into effect within a matter of weeks. Do they think every young person has the luxury of still being able to live in their parents home? The Tory government will happily send you away to serve your country and fight wars that we shouldn't even be involved in, but help with housing? Forget it. You are own your own.

How about Foodbanks? Between April and September 2016, Trussell Trust foodbanks across the UK distributed 519,342 three day emergency food supplies to people in crisis compared to 506,369 during the same period last year. 188,584 of these went to children. Read that again. That is over half a million in just 6 months. The Tories like talking about 'growth', so talk to them about the growth of proud people going cap-in-hand to a charity so they can feed their family.

And then there is the Surrey Sweetheart Deal: The Tories are confident of this one quietly going away, but it seems Labour have now launched an official complaint, so this shambles is far from over Prime Minister.

Tory Election Fraud? Far from over, fresh revelations have been coming out through various media sources over the last 24 hours, far too many to list here, but I expect Twitter will be full of it over the next 24 hours as yet more whistle blowers come forward.

But despite all of this going on, our dedicated media (dedicated to the Tory cause) have more interest in telling you how evil Jeremy Corbyn is, or even Nicola Sturgeon. Anyone but their precious St Theresa of Maidenhead.

The Tories are the masters of the u-turn: David Cameron performed at least 24 in 5 years and according to some commentators, the Tories have performed 27 u-turns in the time Jeremy Corbyn has been leader of the Labour Party. So, tell me again about ineffective opposition?
The biggest problem we have is clear. Someone will have to pay for this latest National Insurance shambles. Will it be the top 1%? Those that hide their millions away in Panama? Google? Amazon? No, of course not, they're all in it together. 

Once again the burden of the heaviest cuts will fall upon the disabled, the low earners, the unemployed, your public services. All are legitimate Tory targets. We should know this by now.
