This Budget Proved You're Worse Off Under the Tories

Mary Glindon MP has slammed George Osborne for his budget that does nothing for families in North Tyneside.

The Chancellor boasted about how well things are going, but it was totally out of touch with hardworking people in North Tyneside who are facing a cost-of-living crisis.

After nearly four years of the Tories, hard-working families are on average £1,600 a year worse off and not feeling any economic recovery at all.

David Cameron and George Osborne can’t deliver a recovery for the many because they stand up for a privileged few. They cut the top rate of tax for people earning over £150,000 while everyone else is worse off.

We need a recovery for the many, not just a few at the top. So Mary has called for action to deal with the cost-of-living crisis. Labour will:

Mary said: “The Budget proved you’re worse off under the Tories. There was no action to deal with the cost-of-living crisis facing hardworking families who are on average £1,600 a year worse off under David Cameron.

“The Chancellor claimed talked about how well things are going. But millions of working people on middle and lower incomes are not feeling any recovery at all while those earning over £150,000 a year have been given a tax cut.

“The Tories can’t deliver a recovery for the many because they stand up for a privileged few, not hard-working families.

“Britain needs a Labour’s government which to freeze energy bills until 2017, cut taxes for 24 million working people on middle and low incomes, expand free childcare for working parents of 3 and 4 year olds and get more young people back to work.”
