“Staggering” £100m cost increase for Boris Johnson’s vanity yacht – Nick Thomas-Symonds

Nick Thomas-Symonds MPLabour’s Shadow Home Secretary, responding to Ben Wallace revealing that the National Flagship will cost as much as £250 million, said:

“Boris Johnson has lost control of his vanity yacht.

“It is absolutely staggering that costs have rocketed by £100 million in a week.

“Labour would scrap the Government’s latest pet project and invest taxpayers’ money wisely to tackle crime and the surge in antisocial behaviour under this Conservative government.”
