Norman Lamont: Austerity isn’t something you can get bored of “like too many repeats on TV”

From Huffpost: Theresa May must not abandon austerity just because cabinet ministers think voters have turned against it, Lord Lamont has said.

The former Conservative chancellor told BBC Radio 4′s Today programme this morning that public spending cuts were not something people could just get bored of like “too many repeats on TV”.

“What concerns me there is seems to be growing in the Conservative party and among ministers a feeling that because the electorate disliked austerity that this is the message that has come back and therefore it ought to be discarded,” he said.
