Fair enough really. You want investment and spending now from business and people.During prime minister’s questions on Wednesday, Starmer said: “Now is not the time for tax rises on families and businesses.”
Richard Burgon, the former shadow justice secretary who is secretary of the Socialist Campaign Group of MPs, said: “The question facing all politicians now is: who is going to pay for this crisis? And if we don’t have an answer for that, then we are in a position where Labour doesn’t have an answer to one of the biggest questions facing us. The prime minister rejected my call for a windfall tax. But Labour has to make clear that the super-rich corporations who have increased profits pay their fair share to bringing the end to this crisis.”
It is; no cuts, no tax rises but pay later as no way is now the time. The Tories could attack Starmer for wanting to spend, spend, spend without paying for it. But they’re the last people to level with voters on the need for higher taxation to maintain spending. And this would be the worst time for the Tories to start. Labour accusing Sunak of hiking taxes to ‘pay for Tory failure’ isn’t rhetorical this time.
