    DescriptionRob Ford, professor of political science at the University of Manchester, said the tax cuts were unlikely to be popular among the so-called “red wall” coalition of voters in Brexit-voting northern towns like Bury.

    Nevertheless, he said, Labour would need to make the case against the chancellor’s approach. “It should be easier for Labour to say ‘this is a reckless bunch of nonsense in the middle of a cost of living crisis’, but they do have to do it,” he said.
