Tan Dhesi MP for Slough
Britain’s never had it so bad! Thanks to the Tory’s kamikaze budget, first time buyers face mortgage madness, as average repayments grow by an eye-watering £580 a month since last year.
Conservative economic incompetence and self-inflicted wounds haven’t just made it difficult to get onto the property ladder, it’s made it near impossible for current homeowners too. For the good people of Slough, who daily work hard, this is disastrous.
People deserve a government that is on their side, not working in the interests of the super-rich. A government that will grow the economy, create jobs and help people get on the property ladder, not pull it away!
The Labour Party wants to reverse PM Truss’ trickle-down budget and end this mortgage mayhem. We would see an end to tax-cuts for the richest ideology and place instead a windfall tax on the excess profits of energy companies, to create a fairer greener future. Why should ordinary hardworking people have to pay the price for this government’s huge borrowing when these companies see record breaking profits. This is Labour’s pragmatic vision which rewards hard work, not the Tory mantra of rewarding the rich for being rich. Britain deserves better. Britain deserves Labour.
