    Prime Minister Who Has Raised Taxes Says He’s Against Raising Taxes

    Boris Johnson has accused Labour of having a “lust” to raise taxes, despite his government having introduced the biggest tax rise since the 1940s.

    Johnson left the door wide open to eventually U-turn on his opposition to the plan.

    But he said: “This government is not in principle in favour of higher taxation.

    “Nothing could be more transparent from this exchange than their lust to raise taxes.”

    The Office for Budget Responsibility (OBR), the official independent body that examines the government’s public finances, recently dismissed the government’s claim it was cutting taxes.

    The independent Institute for Fiscal Studies (IFS) think-tank has also criticised chancellor Rishi Sunak for claiming to have cut taxes while actually allowing them to rise.
