Liz Truss is "pledging to reverse the recent increase in national insurance. The only specific help on energy bills she has proposed is to suspend green levies, which would save the average household about £150 a year. Truss has not ruled out further help, but has repeatedly stressed her preference for tax cuts, although these would disproportionately help higher earners, and do nothing for pensioners or those not in work."

Is there anyone out there willing to defend this nonsense?

If it annoys the right people then Jinx will be in favour of it. Whether it does the country any good or not is, of course, irrelevant

When did tax cuts annoy anyone apart from the harder left?

When the money earmarked for investment in health and social care is given away in order to win a leadership contest
Plus of course it is also the "Tufton-Bufftons" and "Disgusteds-of-Tonbridge-Wells" first in the queue to fire off their regular missives to the Heil and the Torygraph complaining that the cash strapped local authorities are not doing enough to fix the potholes in their leafy lanes.

Just because you don't understand what a job is, doesn't mean it's wasteful.
So what precisely is the point of this job ?

The NHS is a hideous bureaucratic out of date construct that gobbles up all the money thrown at it. No other comparable country uses this model but their systems seem to deliver better overall outcomes.
