Theresa May has been told to get rid of Philip Hammond by key government figures, for allowing him to force an uninspiring image of Britain outside the European Union.
Tory MP Rob Halfon told the BBC: “We need to have less policy-making by tortoise and (more) policy-making by lion. Because we have to be radical. We have to stop seeing politics in transactional terms.”
Hammond has been accused of trying to water down Brexit, he has not accepted the democratic result of the referendum and wants Britain to effectively remain within the European Union. Time is up for this dull uninspiring Chancellor.
Meanwhile, May has been urged to sack Philip Hammond, who as Chancellor has made repeated interventions aimed at watering down Brexit, calling for a “middle way” and “modest changes”. His soft approach has been criticised by the likes of Jacob Rees-Mogg, whilst fellow Brexiteer Nadine Dorries has said he must go.
