Liberal Democrat’s well being budget – McDonnell responds

John McDonnell MP, Labour’s Shadow Chancellor, commenting ahead of the Liberal Democrats’ well being budget, said:

“The Lib Dems have a staggering cheek. Apart from stealing the well being idea from Labour, they were part of the government that created every austerity measure, cutting benefits and our public services and causing large scale poverty and human suffering in our communities.

“People haven’t forgotten the pain they inflicted on us and the lies they told last time they were in government.”
