This is a Dishonest Budget. From tonight, Britain’s families are facing higher taxes to pay for Labour's Debt Crisis.
After a decade of economic mistakes, Gordon Brown is saddling this country with over £1 trillion of debt.
Britain cannot afford another five years of Labour.
The Budget revealed today: tax rises of £1000 on every family in Britain; tax rises on everyone earning over £19,000; tax rises on all new jobs; higher taxes for motorists and responsible drinkers.
The Labour Government was also forced to admit that Britain faces:
The longest recession since the war
The fastest rise in unemployment on record
Every child born already owing £22,500 in national debt
A national debt that will double to £1.4 trillion
Like all Labour governments in history, New Labour has run out of money.
If the Conservatives had given this Budget, we would have got a grip on government spending, and used the savings from cutting waste to introduce real help now for families and pensioners:
Freezing council tax for two years, worth over £200 for the typical family in a Band D home
Abolishing income tax on savings for all basic rate taxpayers, worth up to £7,200 a year
Raising the income tax threshold for pensioners, worth up to £400 a year
Help for the unemployed to upskill and reskill during the recession - and tax breaks for companies who create new jobs
Conservatives will tackle Labour’s Debt Crisis and deliver economic change for Britain.
