Hand-out to high-earners shows Johnson out of touch – John McDonnell

John McDonnell MP, Labour’s Shadow Chancellor, responding to Boris Johnson’s tax cut proposal, said:

“This hand-out to high earners, at a time when public services are crumbling, shows just how out of touch Boris Johnson is from the realities of life in this country.

“This money is more than what we spend every year on justice, or children’s social care – and Johnson wants to give that away to his wealthy friends.

“The Tories do not have the interests of the many at heart, and it’s now time for a general election, a Labour government, and a fairer society.”
