Boris Johnson faces growing red wall rebellion over social care tax rises
The Guardian says Boris Johnson will tell mutinous MPs that the healthcare system is in crisis and they “cannot expect it to recover alone” as he faces a growing red wall rebellion over tax rises.
One Conservative frontbencher told the Guardian they were considering their position over a planned national insurance rise to fund an overhaul of social care and tackle the NHS backlog.
They questioned the point of serving a government that was not pursuing the 2019 Tory manifesto, with a second pledge, on the pensions triple lock, also set to be broken. A series of MPs from former Labour red wall seats complained that the tax increase would hit workers in their constituencies while leaving pensioners untouched.
