Lord Lawson criticises Prime Minister Johnson for being ‘economically illiterate’

In a statement on Boris Johnson’s plans for a ‘Green Industrial Revolution,’ Lord Lawson, the former Chancellor of the Exchequer, said:

 
If the Government were trying to damage the economy they couldn’t be doing it better.

Moreover, the job creation mantra is economically illiterate. A programme to erect statues of Boris in every town and village in the land would also ‘create jobs’ but that doesn’t make it a sensible thing to do.”
