“This is low and disreputable politics,” argues Rentoul, “of the kind trailblazed by Boris Johnson. It is the ‘£350m a week’ on the side of the bus all over again: a figure that is untrue, and that Sunak knows is untrue, deployed because it drives the other side into a state of righteous fury, thus drawing attention to the original charge – that Labour will put up taxes.”
