The Tories are sitting on their hands while families face a catastrophic rise in energy bills and oil and gas producers watch their profits pile up.

This is an emergency situation that requires an urgent response.


The Conservative government has lost control of the economy, with skyrocketing inflation, falling wages and rising mortgage rates.

Only Labour has a plan to tackle the cost of living crisis. 👇

.@POferries now this looks like yet another costly incident aboard the Pride of Kent as she was loading at Calais. Let’s hope nobody was injured. There is a reason we need experienced crews sailing these ferries.

You don’t need us to tell you that your money doesn’t go as far these days.

But just how much are the Conservatives costing you?


YouGov poll of Conservative party members finds 67% saying the NHS has enough money already and should use its resources more efficiently. These are the people who are choosing the next PM

Truss has said she will not be helping people manage the cost of living crisis with extra cash payments this autumn. Apparently cuts to corporation tax and national insurance, both of which will largely benefit the best off, will have to do instead.

Good stuff @nadhimzahawi now let’s hope she has the good grace to face the electorate and call a general election. We need your failed incompetent and truly dishonest Government gone. #GeneralElectionNow

Rishi Sunak promises to give everyone "the same fantastic opportunities" that he had.

Good news for anyone planning to attend one of the most exclusive public schools in the country before marrying one of the wealthiest women in the world.

PM and chancellor on holiday as Bank of England warns UK to be hit by recession http://news.sky.com/story/pm-and-chancellor-on-holiday-as-bank-of-england-warns-uk-to-be-hit-by-recession-12665543

An impending recession.

Families struggling to cope with their bills.

NHS patients waiting in corridors for days.

And where is the Tory government? Missing in action.

.@trussliz wants to cut public sector wages in East Hull and @RishiSunak robbed East Hull of funding. Whichever Tory leadership contender wins, East Hull loses.

As the govt faces criticism for being absent at a time of crisis, we did invite a govt minister on the show this morning but were told they didn't have time for us in their busy schedule.

If any ministers are watching, our chair in Westminster is ready and waiting for you.

Sky-high inflation, rocketing energy bills & Bank of England warnings of recession on the horizon.

Whichever continuity candidate wins, their low-growth, low-wage plans won’t fix the damage caused by 12 years of Tory rule.

Only Labour can provide the fresh start Britain needs.

Come the next Gen Election remember today - the day the Bank of England announced our country is the worst economic crisis in our lifetime & both the PM & Chancellor are on holiday
Whoever leads the #Conservatives it is no longer fit for office.
Time for change.

“The worst economic news of my lifetime."

David Blanchflower, a former member of the Bank of England's Monetary Policy Committee, tells @JackieLongc4 the Bank of England's forecast of a recession is "really very scary.”
