Starmer hits out at deluded Conservatives

Conservatives \

Sir Keir Starmer has branded the Chancellor’s budget as the last desperate act of a party that has failed.

Speaking in the Commons, the Labour leader said: “There we have it, the last desperate act of a party that has failed.

“Britain in recession, the national credit card maxed out, and despite the measures today, the highest tax burden for 70 years.

“The first Parliament since records began to see living standards fall, confirmed by this budget today.

“That is their record, it is still their record, give with one hand and take even more with the other, and nothing they do between now and the election will change that.”

He also accused the Conservative Government of “delusion” following the budget announcement.

The Labour leader told the Commons: “I mean over 14 years we have seen our fair share of delusion from the party opposite.

“A Prime Minister who thinks the cost of living crisis is starting to ease.

“An Education Secretary (Gillian Keegan) who thinks concrete crumbling on our children deserves her gratitude.

“A former prime minister (Liz Truss) who still believes crashing the pound was the right path for Britain.”
