The new PM will sort out all problems after he has finished his dancing to all tunes. Leave it to his experts and his ERG entourage, Richer will get richer and the rest will be so proud of getting rid of EU!

Hammond is what is the problem with our country, they just don't listen and just bang on with there scare tactics

He talks of economics, and yet we are the 6th largest economy in the world, but we have poverty in every corner of our lives. This is the Tories legacy, rich getting richer.

Nick Robinson the reporter did a program in October 2015 in which he interviewed all the past Chancellors of the Exchequer and Home office ministers. He asked them all the same questions and the answers were all the same.
Nick: "You've said numerous times to the public that immigration is good for the country and good for the economy. Why is it good for the country?"
Ans: "Because it keeps inflation down"
Nick: "how does it keep inflation down?"
Ans: "Because is keeps working men's wages down".
Nick:"So, it's good for the bankers and the rich but it's actually bad for the working man?"
Nick; "Don't you think you owe the British public an apology for misleading them?"
Ans: "No"

Jack Straw even went on to admit that as Home Secretary he'd lied for years to the public and parliament about the actual levels of immigration (by a factor of 10!!!!)
and still refused to apologize.

Do not believe a thing these people tell you. The truth is an unknown concept to them.
It would be
a colossal mistake for a future PM Boris Johnson to allow Rudd to serve in his
expected new cabinet, not only because she is an unashamed careerist but
primarily it would be like letting Odysseus in to the 'Brexit besieged city of
Troy using her political subterfuge to destroy the Boris premiership from
within and stop Brexit!
Paul Anderson
Nosferatu strikes again! The bottom line really is, the sooner that Hammond is gone in a few weeks time, the better and less damage. Not long to go now - Tick! Tock!
