Grant Shapp's Tweet Causes Controversy

Conservative Party Chairman tweeted this response to yesterday’s budget.

The cut in Bingo Tax and Beer Duty was an attempt by the Conservative Party to appeal to working class voters- a demographic that were relatively loyal to the party during the Thatcher era but who have been disillusionsed by Cameronism and the coalition. Many people assumed this tweet was a parody and it has sparked out cry in the left wing press.
