The Tories have no proposals to tackle the crisis in our public services or the climate emergency – John McDonnell

John McDonnell, Labour’s Shadow Chancellor, commenting on the latest package of fake news from Conservative Party HQ, said:

“It’s clear from that pathetic and vacuous package of smears, errors and double-counting, that the Conservative Party has no proposals of its own to tackle the crisis in our public services or the climate and environmental emergency.

“Labour is offering a cast-iron guarantee of no rises in income tax or National Insurance rates for 95% of earners, despite Sajid Javid continuing to trot out more debunked fake news from Conservative Party HQ.

“Never mind the shoddy job he’s done on Labour’s proposals, if I were him I’d be more concerned about the increasing hole which is being identified in the Conservative Party’s own costings.”
