‘Tried twice now!’ Charlie Stayt frustrated by Simon Clarke in 'car crash' BBC interview

Clarke tried to insist “everyone” would be gaining more, but Stayt doubled down on his line of questioning.

He interjected: “No, okay, so, I’ve tried twice now. So, if we look at the figures, and these are your own government figures which I hoped you might allude to.

“Someone earning £20,000 will be £93 better off as a result of the National Insurance change.

“Someone earning £100,000 will be £1,093 better off. Those are your own figures, which seem to suggest to me unless you have some counter-narrative, that is those who are earning most will gain the most.”
