Wednesday, November 22, 2017

Twitter users have blasted Philip Hammond for the jokes made during the presentation of the autumnal Budget. 

The Chancellor said stamp duty was to be abolished and outlined how the Government would build 300,000 extra houses by the mid 2020s.

All of this was done in a speech in which he made a series of jokes to the amusement of his colleagues.

However, for a number of users on Twitter, the plays for comedy did not go down very well. 

They took to the social network to blast the Chancellor for his attempts to lighten the mood.
