Defeat, whether by surrender or otherwise, is coming the Government's way on the issue of National Insurance contributions.
But this is nothing.
Just wait for grammar schools, should Theresa May ever be daft enough to try and life the statutory ban on new ones.
And just wait for leaving Thatcher's European Single Market.
Staying in that, regardless of any referendum result on EU membership, was a Conservative manifesto commitment in 2015.
As, of course, was not increasing National Insurance contributions.
