Just before general election day, Mr Cameron announced a “five-year tax lock”, guaranteeing there would be no rises in income tax, national insurance or VAT between 2015 and 2020.


Ameet Gill, Downing Street’s former head of strategic communications, admitted last year: "It was probably the dumbest economic policy that anyone could make, but we kind of cooked it up on the hoof a couple of days before, because we had a hole in the grid and we needed to fill it."
