Hammond’s BREXIT TAX: Chancellor to target pensioners in ‘radical’ bid to boost economy

15 Oct

Concerns Mr Hammond is “trying to frustrate the negotiating process” have also been raised by the DUP, which props up the minority Tory government.

A DUP source told The Sunday Telegraph: “It is evident to us that he is winding people up and causing unnecessary division within the Conservative Party at a crucial time in the Brexit negotiations, and his behaviour is very unsettling.

“One has to wonder what his motivation is. He appears to be at least highly sceptical about Brexit and one could conclude from his current position and his behaviour that he is trying to frustrate the negotiating process and to undermine the Prime Minister.

“The DUP will continue to keep a close watch on the situation but we think that Mrs May needs to do something to rein her Chancellor in and to make it clear to him that this kind of behaviour has to stop.”
