‘Autumn Statement offers little for constituents’ says Steve McCabe MP

Today the Chancellor of the Exchequer George Osborne gave his final Autumn Statement before the General Election next year.

Commenting on the statement, Steve McCabe MP said:

“David Cameron and George Osborne have broken their promise to balance the books by 2015 and they are set to borrow around £219 billion more than they said they would in 2010.

“The Chancellor keeps telling us things are getting better but my constituents are telling me their food and energy bills are growing but their wages aren’t; they are telling me it is still really difficult to secure work; they are saying making ends meet is a constant worry. My constituents don’t want to hear his excuses and broken promises and they can’t afford another five years of this.  They want a plan to improve the lot of working people. The Chancellor’s offering more of the same and telling them to be grateful he’s doing such a good job. He’s just not in touch with ordinary people”
