Andrew Gwynne responding to the Conservative’s manifesto trail

Andrew Gwynne, responding to the Conservative’s manifesto trail, said:

“This is a no-hope manifesto, from a party that has nothing to offer the country, after spending ten years cutting our public services to the bone. This pathetic offer from Boris Johnson’s Tories means more cuts, more failure and more years of Brexit uncertainty.

“Young people can’t afford to buy a home, older people are going without the care they need, our NHS is heading into the worst winter crisis on record and millions of children are growing up in poverty.

“The only people who benefit from this no hope manifesto are big business and the super-rich who don’t want to see the real change this country needs.

“This election is a once-in-a-generation chance to elect a Labour government that will transform our country, with a manifesto that offers real change, and take on the vested interests holding people back.”
