Conservatives’ manifesto will be written by lobbyist for frackers, tax dodgers and zero-hour exploiters – Trickett

Jon Trickett MP, Labour’s Shadow Minister for the Cabinet Office, commenting on the news that the Conservative Party manifesto is being written by a corporate lobbyist for Facebook, Amazon and Caudrilla said:

“If ever we needed another reminder that the Tory Party represents the privileged few, this is it.

“It’s an outrage to democracy that the frackers, the tax dodgers and the zero-hour exploiters will have the biggest say when it comes to Tory policy.

“Labour is determined to win an election on a transformational platform for the many, and we will be a Government that gives ordinary people a proper stake in how this country is run.”
