    Farage doesn't have power, he has influence.

    Cummings only has power because Johnson (elected) is PM.

    Probably.

    Possibly.

    Allegedly.

    The direction of travel is the exact opposite of that.

    Javid was comparatively Thatcherite. Broadly, he was against massive spending because he didn't want massive tax rises or borrowing. Increased day-to-day spending isn't going to be coming from borrowing, so...
    Not it wasn’t with the leaks that were well in advance of budget.

    What's an "IT" job?
    Old Greg - In search of acceptance since Mar 2007. Hoping each leap will be his last.

    “ We will find out in the next few days what the precise argument with the Prime Minister was about. One point should be clear, however. It had already become obvious that Javid was not the right man to deliver over the next five years. A string of batty proposals leaking out of the Treasury suggested he had gone rogue very quickly. With Rishi Sunak appointed in his place, perhaps we can now have a conservative at Number 11....


    From baffling tax plans to rogue behaviour, Sajid Javid had to go

    ToryGraph got Javid fired

    Obviously not - which means he was on board with those tax increases, serves him right

    He was onboard. But he was probably less onbaord for some other day-to-day spending commitments, which could just imply other tax rises...

    Yeah, and now Boris will own any tax increases, suits me better than Bliar outsourcing taxes to strong man like Brown, or like Cameron and Osborne
