Only days ago it was being described as “UnConservative”
With the price of energy soaring at an incredible rate the government have at last given into pressure and is introducing a windfall tax on the companies that are seeing their profits soar by the change.
The PM has been particularly stringent in his opposition to such a move describing it as UnConsrrvative up to only a few days ago.
Yet today, in the aftermath of the Gray “partygate” report we get an announcement from the Chancellor that such a tax is being introduced.
Could it be that they are just trying to change the subject? Surely not!
The problem with U-Turns is that it shows that government policy can be turned and that will encourage others on a future occasion on a different issue.
