BORIS JOHNSON today promises a low-tax, high-earning economy — even hinting he will slash VAT.
His ambitious plans to turbo charge post-Brexit Britain need more detail.

But if they put more money back into workers’ pockets and allow them to keep a greater amount of their hard-earned cash it will be just the shot in the arm that we need.
BoJo’s upbeat optimism is infectious and will be music to the ears of workers struggling after years of austerity and belt-tightening.
As he says, Britain has for too long been living on “nothing but a diet of miserabilism.”
A little more of the BoJo feelgood factor will go a long way to getting Britain booming again.

It stated in legal documents that it should not be held ultimately responsible for victims whose deaths were the “result of pre-existing medical conditions”.
Many victims were burned alive or suffocated in their own flats.
The Saint-Gobain Corporation’s grotesque legalistic attempts to wriggle off the hook are sickening.
Its millionaire boss should be called to account.

We wish every school had Eton’s facilities and resources.
Until then this is the chance of a lifetime for a lad — regardless of background.

Jimmy Hill pulled in viewing figures of 12million on the same show, but only earned £130,000 in today’s money, 13 times less than Lineker.
It’s a funny old game.
