Labour Briefing: You can’t trust the Tories!

On the day that the Tories U-turned on the dementia tax, a little something from the Labour Party on broken Tory promises…

Theresa May pretends otherwise, but she has been at the heart of the Conservative Government for the last seven years. Her personal record is the record of this Conservative Government – one of failure and broken promises. From the economy to the NHS, policing to schools, Theresa May’s government has failed again and again to deliver on the pledges they made to the British people.

• They promised economic stability, but they have missed every debt and deficit target they set themselves.
• They promised to raise living standards, but working families are set to be on average over £1,400 a year worse off.
• They promised to improve all standards of NHS care, but A&Es are in their worst state on record and hospitals are in financial crisis.
• They promised to protect school spending, but per pupil spending is going down and class sizes are soaring.

If they broke this many promises in just two years, imagine how many they could break with another five.
