Mary has responded to the Chancellor’s Spring Statement which has been widely criticised for not doing enough to tackle the cost of living crisis hammering the country at this time.

Responding to the measures, Mary said

The Spring Statement shows the Chancellor is clueless about the true scale of the cost-of-living crisis facing ordinary folk. Hidden in his statement, the Office for Budget Responsibility has forecast the greatest drop in living standards since 1956.

He has made the choice to protect the record profits of oil and gas companies, while announcing no serious measures to help people pay their runaway energy bills. He has cut 5p off a litre of petrol but that will only save the poorest households a measly £2 a month.

Labour presented the Chancellor with costed, targeted policies which were up to the scale of the task of shielding the poorest during this crisis.

But the Chancellor has ignored this, choosing to tinker around the edges, rather than stand up and show he is on the side of every household struggling to cover skyrocketing prices on his watch. Warm words don’t heat homes.
