George Galloway: 'Philip Hammond's budget was meaningless and he is not qualified enough for the job'

Philip Hammond announced his budget last week

Philip Hammond is not qualified enough to be the Chancellor of the Exchequer and his budget was meaningless, according to George Galloway.

Last week Hammond announced the budget, giving £2 billion to help fund social care, however many have claimed this is not enough.

The talkRADIO presenter said: “I have never heard a more boring, meaningless budget than the one I thought I was listening to delivered by spreadsheet Phil.

“Spreadsheet Phil is a desiccated chartered accountant from a provincial practice who has somehow wandered on to the Westminster stage...where he’s plainly not qualified.

“Scenes that have ever been seen in Britain, since Dickensian times, of old infirm unwell people literally wandering the streets not knowing where they are cannot be far away [due to social care problems].

"Yet spreadsheet Phil was wandering around Westminster making lame dad jokes that weren’t funny when they were first cracked 10,000 times ago."
