“Boris Johnson has launched a manifesto for billionaires” Jeremy Corbyn responds to the Conservative manifesto

Jeremy Corbyn, Leader of the Labour Party, responding to the launch of the Conservative Manifesto, said:

“Boris Johnson has launched a manifesto for billionaires. They bought it and you’ll pay for it.

“After a decade of the Conservatives cutting our NHS, police and schools, all Boris Johnson is offering is more of the same: more cuts, more failure, and years more of Brexit uncertainty.

“Boris Johnson can’t be trusted. Older people face a triple whammy as he has failed to protect free TV licences for over 75s, refused to grant justice to women unfairly affected by the increase in the state pension age, and not offered a plan or extra money to fix the social care crisis.

“In contrast, Labour’s manifesto is full of popular policies that the political establishment has blocked for a generation.

“Labour will deliver the real change Britain needs, so that no one is held back and no community left behind.”
