Hyndburn and Haslingden MP says PM has no idea about cost of living crisis
2:51pm Wednesday 9th October 2013 in News
GRAHAM Jones, MP for Hyndburn and Haslingden, has warned that the government has ‘absolutely no new ideas to deal with the cost of living crisis that’s happening on their watch’.
Reflecting on the political party conferences held in Manchester last month, the Labour politician said: “Ed Miliband and Labour have identified the real problem of living standards facing families around the country, and laid out policies to help deal with them.
“A tax cut for small businesses, childcare help for families, and a pledge to freeze energy bills until January 2017.
“David Cameron and the Conservatives may have realised they’ve got a problem, but have absolutely no new ideas to deal with the cost of living crisis that’s happening on their watch.
“Since David Cameron became Prime Minister in 2010, life has got tougher for too many people. We’ve seen the slowest recovery from recession in 100 years. Nearly a million young people are unemployed.
“Prices have risen faster than wages in a staggering 38 out of 39 months while David Cameron has been in Downing Street.
“The truth is that, year after year, you’ve been working harder, for longer, for less.”
