The Economy

The Conservatives promised to fix the deficit and improve prospects for growth and employment. They have done neither. In fact, they have failed the most basic tests that they set themselves on economic competence.

What’s clear is that the government has its priorities all wrong. The Conservatives and Liberal Democrats are cutting the top rate of income tax for millionaires while cutting services, benefits, and tax credits for everyone else.

We need an economy based around the principle that every person in Britain deserves a good, decent job — an economy that is built to last.

That is why I was proud that Ed Miliband chose to come to Bedford Training Centre to make his case for a stronger, more vibrant, and just economy.
