IN his Mansion House speech, Chancellor of the Exchequer Phillip Hammond said that a no-deal Brexit would be really bad for the country, millions of jobs would be lost.

So since when has he been bothered about the working class? All he’s done for the years he’s been Chancellor, just like George Osborne before him, is make us suffer.

And by the way, Phil, old chap, it is not that long since you said “a no-deal would not be that bad”.
