Today Rishi Sunak could have introduced a windfall tax on oil and gas producers to provide real help to families.

But he didn’t.

Rishi Sunak could have used his Spring Statement to scrap his tax hike and set out a plan to support British business.

But he didn’t.

Instead, the man who lost billions of pounds to fraud has once again proved that he is not fit for the job. 

In the wake of his own cost of living crisis, Rishi Sunak has raised tax for households across the country.

While energy and fuel prices spiral, he is laying the burden at the door of working people, with a national insurance hike.

Only Labour has a plan to tackle the Conservative cost of living crisis head on and grow our economy.

We’d give households the help they need – our windfall tax plan for oil and gas giants would ensure that those with the broadest shoulders pay their fair share.

The Conservatives have been in power for 12 years.

With inflation at a 30-year high, and a cost of living crisis with no end in sight, Rishi Sunak had the audacity to exclaim that, “the work starts today.”

Rishi Sunak is out of touch and unfit for office.

The Local Elections in May are an opportunity to make sure everybody knows it.

If this Spring Statement confirms anything at all, it’s that it’s time for a new Britain with Labour.

A better, fairer Britain underpinned by security, prosperity and respect.

As Labour members, we can deliver it, together.

Thank you,

Rachel Reeves
Shadow Chancellor of the Exchequer
