Don’t expect a picture of post-Brexit prosperity from arrogant Philip Hammond after his outrageous Project Fear scaremongering

CHANCELLOR Phil Hammond makes his big speech to the Tory faithful in ­Birmingham today. Don’t expect a picture of post-Brexit prosperity. He is also writing his ­ Halloween Budget on October 29 . Nobody is hoping for voter-friendly treats. Nobody is hoping for voter-friendly treats in arrogant Eeyore’s Halloween Budget For a man in charge of our economic destiny at such a momentous time, this “ stubby-pencilled accountant ” has precious little to say. It seems he even remained mute at a recent Cabinet session to war-game a No-Deal Brexit — surely the Chancellor of the Exchequer ’s special subject. Well-informed Spectator editor Fraser Nelson says other ministers piled in with upbeat projects but Hammond “seemed to have no ideas and kept quiet”. Spreadsheet Phil possesses either supreme self-confidence or total contempt for the 17.4million who voted for Brexit , or both. The man who a year ago faced political death has become the most powerful figure in Theresa May’s Cabinet

Hunt Compares EU to USSR

Image The new Foreign Secretary has launched into a spirited defence of Brexiteers at the start of Tory Conference and even compared the EU to the USSR: “At the moment you, European friends, seem to think the way to keep the club together is to punish a member who leaves, not just with economic disruption, but even by breaking up the United Kingdom with a border down the Irish Sea… “The EU was set up to protect freedom – it was the Soviet Union that stopped people leaving. The lesson from history is clear – if you turn the EU club into a prison, the desire to get out of it won’t diminish, it will grow, and we won’t be the only prisoner that wants to escape…” This is remarkably punchy rhetoric, particularly given that Hunt was calling for a second referendum after the vote in 2016. It’s impossible not to see this through the prism of leadership – it looks a clear bid to win over the party’s pro-Brexit base. Probably

Here’s what you need to know. Theresa May arrives at the Conservative Party ConferenceRex Features What has Theresa May said about Brexit?

Her entire premiership has been devoted to ensuring Britain has a smooth departure from the EU. May’s Brexit plan proposes that Britain stick close to EU rules in return for remaining in the bloc’s single market for goods.
