FOR ALL the harping on about Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson being the least competent member of the Tory Cabinet — and he has a fair claim to the title — Chancellor Philip Hammond was determined yesterday to give him a run for his money.

In his speech to the Tory conference, Hammond served up to the half-empty hall a room-temperature dog’s breakfast consisting of all the lowlights of the Conservatives’ election campaign.
Hammond claimed that Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn wanted to “take us back to the 1970s” but instead revealed himself to be yesterday’s man with his references to early 1990s films.
Corbyn was a “clear and present danger to our economic prosperity” — what economic prosperity? — and Hammond relished the thought of debating with “a political version of Jurassic Park.”
That latter tale perhaps holds some lessons for the Tories — a private theme park whose owners conduct horrific experiments, causing lives to be lost and the whole area turned into a wasteland. One might even go so far as to compare it to Thatcher’s destructive reign or the austerity inflicted on Britain by the Tories and their former Liberal Democrat collaborators since 2010.
Before Thatcher — in the, er, 1970s — wages made up a far greater proportion of GDP, council housebuilding was going strong, and there was a whole swathe of publicly owned companies enriching Britain that have now been flogged off on the cheap to make money for a privileged few.
