WHO should we believe over Labour’s plan to neuter Brexit?
Or shadow chancellor Rachel Reeves, sent out to smooth over his disastrous gaffe and reassure Leavers?
Brussels won’t just give him the “better deal” he claims he could secure — not without him sacrificing some key aspect of our hard-won independence.
Which? Starmer has let that slip.
He would follow Brussels diktat.
Later, having done so long enough, he could perhaps argue we might as well be back in.
Labour was every bit as sneaky and undemocratic under Blair and Brown — and again when Starmer himself tried to reverse the 2016 referendum verdict.
The Remainer-in-chief would not “make Brexit work”. He wouldn’t even keep it safe.
Get tax down
WE are baffled why Jeremy Hunt would ignite Tory infighting by glibly crushing hopes of a tax cut in a radio interview.
And inflation and our massive debt payments are still worrying.
But no Tory Government should readily maintain the highest tax burden in 70 years as it kills growth and hurts families.
It should be bold, slash public spending, free up money to ease households’ pain and attract job-creating investment.
Labour would do none.
So Mr Hunt can still remind the public of one key reason to vote Tory: Lower taxes.
Doesn’t add up
A-LEVELS are ripe for reinvention. But we cannot see the merit in making kids study maths to 18, as Rishi Sunak wants.
Yes, employers would love school-leavers with a wider range of skills a new “British baccalaureate” might provide.
But most jobs never require maths beyond the level of, say, a 14-year-old.
Plus, we don’t have enough maths teachers.
It may, then, all be academic.
OUR courts must never hold rape trials in secret, as the Law Commission proposes.
It claims excluding the public and almost all Press would ease victims’ stress.
But they are already anonymous for life and can testify via video link.
Open justice is sacred.
Abandon it for certain cases and they will go unreported . . . so a rapist’s further victims would never know to come forward.
It is sinister — and must be rejected.
