“Hey, big spenders,” the headline reads, and the paper reports, “Sunak takes spending to the highest level since the 1970s when he declares the Tories ‘the public service party’. Sunak will increase spending by each ministry in a £ 150 billion “madness” that “moves the Tories into traditional Labor territory,” he says.
