Britain is unfair warns shadow chancellor

22/08/08
 

The shadow chancellor, George Osborne, has launched a report highlighting how Labour’s policies have made Britain more unfair.

He said that a decade of top-down, state control has created an unfair Britain:

• The number of people in severe poverty has increased by 900,000 since 1997
• Gordon Brown’s stealth taxes mean the poorest now pay more of their income in tax than the richest
• The gap in life expectancy between rich and poor is now at its widest since the Victorian era
• Educational inequality is getting worse

Osborne promised a Conservative Government would make Britain a fairer place to live, by using Conservative means to achieve fair and progressive goals.
