Jeremy Corbyn has criticised the Conservative cuts, saying:
‘It is the hypocrisy that turns the stomach, when in the terrorist attacks or the Grenfell Tower fire, these Conservative politicians give warm words of praise, and then a week later vote to cut those same people’s incomes, having cut thousands of their colleagues’ jobs already’.
‘People are fed up with the hypocrisy and the dishonesty of the Conservative Party’.
‘There’s always the money available when they want to start another war. There’s always the money for tax giveaways to big business or the very richest’.
‘There’s always the money for new grammar schools or the latest hare-brained scheme to benefit their friends.’.
‘We saw at Grenfell Tower the terrible consequences of austerity and of doing things on the cheap’.
