Ah! Of course. I'm sure you're right.

Where is the next Peter Shore? Where is the next Anthony Crossland? Where the next Barbara Castle? For the most part I disagreed with their politics, but what presence - what performers. It does not exist within the Labour party now.

........................ and just imagine how a vast enterprise such as the construction of another Heathrow runway would stimulate the economy.

Boris, spend OUR money here.

Huge projects will always infuriate someone or other.

The vast expenditure can best be sold to the electorate if the money spent is spent within this country. Basic economics suggests that 100 billion (HS2) spent within the country will provide a colossal boost to the economy. It's all part of the circulating fund that the Government can tax time and time again, every time it changes hands.

If we buy trains from Germany or Japan, and steel from China, we'll be bloody mad. Such imports may be cheaper in the first place, but those funds are gone - to boost other economies, never to be taxed again.

Now we're out of the EU we're no longer compelled to put such contracts out to all-comers. Hurray, hurray, hurray. Just think of the R&D we can encourage, and the employment of thousands of up-skilling workers.

It's basic stuff. Can Boris and his team possibly think any alternative might be sensible?

That's the obvious implication, but I've not seen or heard Cox making me, me, me noises. Have they obviously been at odds about anything? Was it a matter of perceived loyalty? Cox is/was no-one's creature.

Comment - Now posted on the correct article.

There's SO much anti-Boris hot air around: predictable but boring. I'd have thought it obvious that a PM and a Chancellor have to be working to the same agenda. But there can only be one leader, and the last thing Boris needs is a Chancellor continually saying 'Yes, but,' And, essentially, it depends how much pressure the advisors have been applying to the Chancellor to continue saying 'Yes, but'.

Sajid has flounced off, when he might have been self-advised to stay put, and remain in the game. It's a precipitous fall from the second highest appointment in the country, to back-bencher. I just hope he can stop himself from compounding his mistake by demonstrating ongoing disapproval, and pique.

Can someone explain - why Geoffrey Cox? Cox seemed to me to be a complete star.
