The Budget…

We voted last week on a broken promise budget.

It has become clear over the last fortnight, despite what the Chancellor claims, that austerity is not over.

Cuts to social security will continue: schools, councils and police are all suffering.

The Chancellor’s £1.7bn tokenistic promise for Universal Credit doesn’t get close to reversing the £7bn cuts already planned, nor does it address the huge fundamental problems with the Government’s disastrous programme.

I hear every day how families across the constituency are suffering with the Tories’ broken system and this extra cash doesn’t even touch the sides.
