I read Sir Bill Wiggin’s Talking Point (November 24) with disbelief. 

He tells us that “the war in Ukraine and the cost of Covid support means that the Government has been put in a very difficult situation”, hence the new Chancellor’s costly Autumn Statement.


I detect an omission. Sir Bill supported Liz Truss and the most disastrous ‘budget’ in living memory. On this matter he is silent. The cost of her policy has been estimated at £30 billion and it leaves thousands of mortgage holders worse off by many hundreds of pounds.

Before explaining that he now supports tax rises instead of tax cuts, could not Sir Bill take his own advice “to be honest with people” and offer an apology?
