Theresa May offers no solutions – Jon Trickett

Jon Trickett MP, Labour’s National
Campaign Co-ordinator
,
responding to Theresa May’s interview with Sky News’ Sophy Ridge, said:

“Six failed years of the
Tories have given us a crisis in the NHS, economic failure and working people
worse off, and Theresa May clearly has no idea what to do about it. The only
thing she offers is an empty slogan.

"With the NHS in crisis, we
need a plan to fix it and give it the funding it needs – but this morning a
complacent Theresa May wouldn’t even recognise there’s an issue. She offered
warm words about a ‘fair deal’ but hasn’t a clue what that means, running a
government which has seen working people worse off. And on Brexit there are still
no clear objectives on getting the best deal for Britain, prompting her to
complain that her thinking isn’t ‘muddled’ yet offering no evidence to the
contrary.

"Tory failure means Britain
is worse off and Theresa May offers no solutions.”
