COUNTRY IS CRYING OUT FOR CHANGE THAT THIS GOVERNMENT CAN’T DELIVER
Responding to the Government’s legislation for this Parliament, Catherine McKinnell, Member of Parliament for Newcastle North, has spoken in the King’s Speech debate about the lack of vision and direction from the Conservative Government.
Speaking in the debate, Catherine explained: “we are in the dying embers of this Government. They are tired, out of ideas and lacking direction” and “anyone would be forgiven for thinking that the Government has given up”.
Catherine hit out at the lack of vision to grow the economy or break down barriers that are holding people back. Calling for a change in direction, she added: “rather than sticking-plaster politics, we need a mission-driven Government focussed on our national renewal. The country is crying out for change – even the Conservative party is – but the answer to that is clearly not more Conservative Government.”
Following her contribution, Catherine added:
“This programme for government shows that the Conservatives can’t fix the country because they’re the ones who have failed it. Thirteen years leaving a legacy of stagnant growth, sky-rocketing mortgages, soaring prices and crumbling schools and hospitals.
“In contrast with this tired government, Labour has the plan and the energy to give Britain its future back.”
