The Archbishop of Canterbury has set out a bold vision for a different society – John McDonnell

John McDonnell, Labour’s Shadow Chancellor, responding to Justin Welby, the Archbishop of Canterbury’s speech, at the TUC, said:

“The Archbishop of Canterbury has set out a bold vision for a different society, one without the evils of the gig economy, the exploitation of workers and tax dodging of the multinationals.

“I welcome his speech, and the growing movement against the failures of austerity and neoliberalism. Labour will end zero hours contracts, clamp down on the tax avoiders, and ensure everyone has access to sick pay, parental leave and protections at work.”
