This Government's war on the individual really is startling. First the Chancellor is caught in a bald-faced lie trying to con people into thinking that the Government's tax cut amounted to £1000/yr, then they went to war with motorists hiking insurance premium tax, fuel duty, and vehicle excise duty, finally they went to war with pensioners and the concept of saving by taking a fireaxe to the Pensions Tax Relief. Whilst the Conservative Party offer the people tax cuts, enabling you to keep more of YOUR money the Government are committed to more taxing than ever before and more borrowing to ensure future generations are burdened by their mistakes as well.

Dylan Macmillan calls our government's fiscal record "cute and clever" with "a couple of small investments here and there." Which investments exactly does he think are so worthy of derision? Does he want to mock this government's record on investing in special educational needs or providing free sanitary products in schools? Does he want to mock this government's record on fighting homelessness or ending mental health inequalities? Does he find the government's substantial increase in legal aid spending, ensuring justice for all, worthy of mocking, or the government's investment in medical research? Which of these life-saving investments, exactly, does he consider "cute"?

The Government's war on motorists is a particularly egregious bit of mischief by the Chancellor and the Deputy Prime Minister. Nearly everyone, rich or poor, man or woman, needs a car to get to work, so what do the Government do? They increase Vehicle Excise Duty so you can't afford to keep your car on the road, they hike Fuel Duty so you can't afford to fill it with petrol, and they jack up Insurance Premium Tax so you can't afford the mandatory insurance needed to put your car on the road safely. This Government is waging a war on workers through their war on motorists, they need to stop before they start costing people their jobs.

Labour has invested in our education system whilst the Conservatives propose cuts again. Labour has increased the pupil premium once again; the Conservatives are promising 2% real terms cut. Labour offer £1 billion of investment in schools, books and facilities, the Conservatives are cutting this investment down by over 30%. Labour is delivering 5 extra hours of free childcare; The Conservatives nothing. Labour is delivering increased education budget at double the rate of inflation. The Conservatives are offering more cuts. It’s clear that only Labour can be trusted to deliver strong investment in education system and fiscal responsibility. Labour is cutting the deficit and rebuilding education; Macmillan wants to cut education and punish the public finances as well - You can't trust the Conservatives for good services and you can't trust them on the deficit either.

The worst part of the Government's tax cut fiasco is that it came as a result of the Chancellor deciding that he wanted to try and win a size-measuring contest with the Conservatives on working class taxes.  That whole mess would have been avoided the Chancellor had been content to admit that he couldn't match the Conservative Shadow Budget in terms of tax benefits for working class families in the first place, instead of having to walk back his claims later.  The Government tried to be something that it isn't and the result was a humiliating mess.

The Deputy Prime Minister recently asked what we think is "cute and clever" about the Budget.  When the Chancellor decided to overstate the tax cut that working class families would get by £800, that was definitely both too cute by half and too clever by half.  That screw-up speaks for itself.

Our budget provides an extra 1000 pounds untaxed in income tax, that is bigger than what Tories offer for the poorest people in this country, in fact Tories offer a tax hike for the poorest 1.2 million taxpayers in this country, a tax hike that is up to 150 pounds. That is a fact and Tories can't deny it, their policy to freeze the basic allowance is harming people across the country. Our budget provides an extra 1000 pounds untaxed to every single person in this country, in fact 6 million people across Britain, the poorest 6 million are better off under our tax system than the Tories. We have increased the basic allowance, they have increased the allowance for those who earn above 140 thousand pounds. Their priorities are not your priorities.

Labour want to become the party of young people so let me ask Labour a few things. In these budgets who was it who protected university funding and who was it who decided to spend the money on an election spin line? Answer, it was the Tories who protected university funding. Let me ask Mr Wilson a follow-up question, which party would have cut the deficit further and faster, ensuring that our young people are not saddled with the kind of debt that this Chancellor has saddled us with? Answer, it's the Tories. The Conservative Party are the only party for the future of this great nation, protecting university funding in real terms and ensuring that our young people inherit more than a festering pile of debt and interest payments when it's our turn to hand over.

The Prime Minister wants to follow her Chancellor and decry the Conservative Party's tax cuts for the average working man and woman, claiming that somehow £800/yr is a bad thing for the average worker and that somehow the Tories have sinister intentions to cut taxes for the rich people in the country? Prime Minister this class warfare really does not suit you. Here are the facts: the average worker will be £800/yr better off under the Conservatives, the average worker will be £600/yr better off when compared to the Government's budget, people earning more than £60,000 per year will be paying more in tax this year than last. So far from cutting taxes for our rich friends and hiking taxes on the Average Joe it is the Conservative Party that are cutting taxes for the Average Joe and raising them on the richest in our society. We're all in this together after all.

We are investing in our NHS, once again, we are increasing the real time spending once again. 1000 new beds to the NHS. 1000 new doctors in our hospitals, 3000 new nurses, 500 new emergency care staff, 1000 new support staff for our hospitals. One of the most proud accomplishments of this country has been the NHS, it is our most valuable and irreplaceable public service, unfortunately every single time Tories have been in charge, our NHS has suffered. You can literally understand who is in government by looking at NHS satisfaction rates over the years, they rise when Labour is in charge and they collapse when Tories are in charge. Tories have always promised to take a good care of the NHS and every single time they have underinvested, understaffed and let it rot. Our government is fixing the mess Tories made with our NHS and we will make sure that it will be in a better place than it ever was when we are done with it.

The Labour Party love the NHS so much that this year, thanks to the "investments" they borrowed over the last two years we shall be spending more on debt interest than we will be on the entire hospital budget, new beds and all. This is why we cannot have strong public services without eliminating the deficit, a journey we'd be £20-30bn further along if the country had followed Conservative spending plans for the last two years instead of the Governments.

Labour is delivering for the people of this country. Labour is cutting the deficit by £25 billion whilst; increasing education investment by 4.4%, increasing NHS funding by 5%, taking 1.2 million workers out of income tax, deliver a tax cut to 6 million earners, increasing rail spending 27% above the Conservative plans, £2 billion extra for infrastructure & transport, £1 billion for green jobs and tripling wage growth. Labour is giving parents an extra 5 hours of free childcare, another £1 billion for schools, increasing the pupil premium, delivering sports in schools and continuing to reduce the pupil-to-teacher ratio. The Conservatives offer cuts to education, Labour offers investment and stability. In all ways, Labour is delivering better investment, better services, better deficit reduction and better wages. Labour is delivering more, and Britain is better off for it.

The Leader of the Opposition has become an ideologue without exception. He is, no matter the facts, spouted his ideological-driven policies to cut away at public services, push more people into poverty and give nothing to our children.  He hacks away at education, public health, foreign aid, benefits and still he cannot seem to cut the deficit. Labour is cutting the deficit faster than the Conservative proposal, and for all his claims the facts don’t change; Labour means stronger services, better wages, lower debt and lower taxes. Mr Macmillan says nothing for the tripling of wage growth. He says not a word for increased education spending. Mr Macmillan is silent on our increased childcare. Mr Macmillan has nothing to offer our parents, commuters, low earners, benefit claimants, nurses and police but higher deficits, worse pay and unnecessary cuts.

On rail, Labour is delivering. Labour is delivering investment 27% above that of the Conservative proposals. Labour is only raising fares with inflation, whilst the Tories raise them at double the rate. It’s clear for commuters, Labour is delivering over £2 billion in infrastructure and public transport and keeping fares low. The Conservatives are gutting out our railways with cuts of 25% whilst raising fares twice as fast as inflation. Labour is the clear and safe option on transport, lower fares, better investment all whilst cutting the deficit faster.

Labour need to stop listening to their Chancellor because anyone with eyes can see that this year under Conservative fiscal plans we would be borrowing £2.1bn less than under Labour's plan. Labour need to stop insisting that they cut the deficit by more than the Tories, it really isn't fooling anyone.
