This Tory Government is bad for the country, bad for communities, bad for businesses and as we saw today, bad for the environment.
Sunak’s speech was deluded, mentioning how successful his Government is and singling out the NHS for achieving more – on a day when for the first time in history Junior Doctors and consultants were on strike because of this Government’s failures. The announcement uniting both the motor industry and the environmental lobby in opposition to his latest u turn.
This announcement today, just one day after Parliament broke for recess means there is no chance for MPs and Parliament to discuss this until October the 16th at the earliest.
We’re in a climate emergency. Now is not the time to water down vital net zero measures.
This is a complete farce from an incompetent Tory government that destroys everything it touches, proving again and again they do not know how to govern.
Sunak insinuated people couldn’t afford to pay to deal with the climate change crisis, none of us can afford not to do it – but working class people shouldn’t be forced to pay.
Instead of taking this ridiculous, chaotic and embarrassing step backwards, we need the Government to tackle climate change, recommit to reaching net zero by 2030 and ensure corporate polluters pay their fair share of tax to enable that to happen.
A year ago today Truss announced policies that destroyed the economy and the country is still struggling.
Now Sunak wants to announce policies that will help destroy the planet.
Thirteen years of failed Tory policies have destroyed public services, led to an energy bills crisis, created a cost of living crisis and failed on the climate crisis.
Today I held a small business drop in and over 70 people turned up, they are all being let down by this incompetent government.
This move is the latest of many broken Tory promises, and enough is enough.
What we should have heard from Sunak is a resignation, he should call a General Election so that Labour can start fixing the mess they have caused.
