CHANCELLOR Philip Hammond was labelled “deeply offensive” yesterday for allegedly suggesting that train driving was so easy “even” a woman could do it.

His reported comment, at Tuesday’s meeting of the Cabinet, earned the former transport secretary a sharp rebuke from Prime Minister Theresa May, according to The Sun.

Mr Hammond is said to have made his remark during a discussion about rail strikes in front of the entire Cabinet.

Rail union RMT general secretary Mick Cash told the Star: “Hammond’s deeply offensive comments show just how out of touch with the real world this clown car of a government really are.”

Labour MP Jess Phillips said: “Philip Hammond has disgraced himself with this remark, as well as managing to insult half the country’s population.”

Mr Hammond has denied but refused to discuss the allegations.
