What Bojo is doing is offering a traditional olive branch to woo the traditional tory voters back to supporting the party. A smart move on his part as the resulting debt will be a problem for future generations rather than current politicians.
He is also being very smart because it is the traditional “middle earners” that have been hit hardest of late. Whilst the low paid have benefited from increased income tax personal allowances, middle earners have seen their income eaten into by effectively lowered higher rate tax thresholds.

And of course - this is exactly the demographic scared witless by JC and the likes of D Abbot and so would be receptive to something actually being given back to them rather than it consistently being taken from them.
