UK: Economy weaker under the Tories, says Labour
Starmer says the PM’s bluster “won’t work with the police” – pointing to the investigation into the Met on Downing Street parties.
But he says the reason the Tories are putting taxes up are because of low growth in the UK, that was “much weaker” than under Labour government.
He accuses the Tories of failing to grow the economy for “over a decade”.
“No,” replies the PM.
He says the UK has been through the biggest pandemic for 100 years and put vast amounts of cash into helping people.
But, “in spite of all the difficulties we have faced”, Johnson claims the UK has the fastest growth in the G7 and lowest unemployment.
