Boris Johnson tells planning critics they’re wrong despite by-election humiliation

Boris Johnson is at odds with his chancellor Rishi Sunak sobre Treasury plans to suspend the “triple lock” on pensions for a year, with frustration over the prime minister’s desire to make expensive policy pledges, de acordo com relatórios.

The Sunday Times claimed that officials were said to be examining plans to prevent a rise in average wages over the course of the Covid-19 pandemic leading to a 6 per cent increase in the state pensioncosting the government £4bn.

It added that there was “growing consternation” over Mr Johnson’s habit of announcing plans that would cost billions of pounds “when there is no means to pay for them”.

It came as former speaker and Tory MP John Bercow revealed he had defected to Trabalho as he warned that the government needed “to be replaced”.

Mr Bercow said the Conservadores had become “reactionary, populist, nationalistic and sometimes even xenophobic” under Mr Johnson’s leadership.
