    That's more than double the amount HMRC predicts the public sector IR35 changes will raise over the next four years
    No it's not - it's £1billion extra for 2 years of support. Over a 5 year term that will be £2.5bn.

    It's a tulip deal.

    It only needs a couple of naughty Tories to **** it all up:

    The Tories have 317 MPs, but once you allow for one MP becoming a deputy speaker, the DUP deal will give them a combined 326 votes. Once you allow for two Labour MPs becoming deputy speakers, and for the fact that the seven Sinn Fein MPs will not take their seats, the combined opposition party vote is 313. That is a working majority of 13. For the government to lose, all it would take would be for seven Tory MPs to switch sides.
    Brexit is having a wee in the middle of the room at a house party because nobody is talking to you, and then complaining about the smell.

    Last year's cut in DLA was designed to save the country £1.25Bn because we needed austerity to balance the books and 'we're all in this together' but £1.5Bn can be found to bribe a bunch of sash wearing creationist wanktrumpets.

    They're all in it together.


    And thanks for the word 'wanktrumpet'. Will use it as an alternative to 'cocksniffer' when I want a slight difference in emphasis.
