NHS FUNDING: Rees-Mogg BLASTS Hammond Over Rate Rise
Jacob Rees-Mogg has taken aim at Chancellor Philip Hammond and warned that he may find there is “not a lot of support” for more tax rises to fund the NHS. Mr Rees-Mogg said that Britain is already too highly taxed:
“This country is as highly taxed as a percentage of GDP as it has been since the early 1970s, late 1960s.
“I don’t think the Conservative Party is here to increase taxes.
“Philip Hammond seems to think otherwise but he hasn’t yet presented a Budget and he may find there is not a lot of support for tax increases.
