In the face of all of that we’ve just had a more of the same Budget – no change on anything important and the Chancellor’s going ahead with a tax cut for millionaires in two weeks time.
What we needed from the budget was a change of direction and bold action to kickstart our flat lining economy and give real help to families on middle and low incomes - not more of the same failing policies and a huge tax cut for millionaires.
David Cameron and George Osborne's economic plan has completely failed. Families, pensioners and businesses are paying the price.
Wigan deserves better than this.
