Jeremy Browne occasionally rebelled against their party in their last parliament
I have heard it said that I was the only Minister in history to have been sacked for being too supportive of the Government. Although the decision to determine my future may or may not have been wise—others can judge that—I remain unequivocally enthusiastic about this Government, as I am about the Budget statement made by the Chancellor today. That is what I want to speak about in...
Grand coalition is what you need.
Surely the most rational explanation is that this Government, even well into their fifth year, remain so vigorous and so determined to reform Britain for the best across so many different fronts and so many different departments, that it is difficult for us to accommodate all our energetic new ideas without putting a lot of them into this single Bill.
