Nobody is fooled into believing this is a proper Spending Review – John McDonnell
John McDonnell MP, Labour’s Shadow Chancellor, commenting on the Chancellor setting a 4th September date for the spending review, said:
“Nobody is fooled into believing that this is a proper and normal Spending Review. It’s a one off pre-election panic driven stunt budget.
“As each spending announcement is dribbled out it is exposed as inadequate and whole areas of spending needs like local councils and addressing child poverty are ignored. This is not serious government.”
