The Tory Cost of Living Crisis


UK Consumer Price Index (CPI) Inflation reached a 40 year high of 9% yesterday, and the Bank of England are forecasting it’ll get even worse in the winter.

Don’t ever forget that it’s 12 years of Conservative policy that has led us to this point. Our cost-of-living crisis is a culmination of TORY political choices. 

The decade-long march of austerity, their economically insane version of Brexit, and mishandling of the Covid pandemic.

I’m not a fan of Brexit but better Brexits were (and still are) available. The Tories asked us what we wanted, then served up the worst form of Brexit that suited their purposes, not ours. 

As a nation we need to start fact-checking the bullsh*t the Tories are feeding us daily.

Of course the Tories will tell you this is a global energy crisis and there’s a war in Ukraine - true, but our inflation is the WORST in the G7, and is forecast to remain HIGHER, for LONGER, than any other country in the G7 - and THAT is down to the Tories. 

World beating?!?..

So now, as if their home made cost of living crisis isn’t enough, the Tories are going to provoke a trade war with the EU, supposedly based on the EU’s insistence on adhering to an international agreement drafted by - and signed by - the Tories.

EVERYBODY told Johnson that his oven-ready trade deal would mean a trade border in the Irish Sea - but he wouldn’t accept it. 

Now, he wants to tear it up because everyone warning him was right all along, and HE was wrong.

Johnson is an expensive liability we cannot afford!

And NOW the Tories are even telling us the inevitable recession we’re diving heading into under THEIR leadership, is all OUR FAULT - wait for it -  because we’re WORKING FROM HOME!
