GMB on the budget

GMB commented on the budget presented by Tory Chancellor George Osborne today (18th March 2015).

Paul Kenny, GMB General Secretary, said “Osborne has claimed more recoveries in the past five years than the RAC.

Even a blind person would see the short term bribes Osborne is offering today.

What he is planning however is the most draconian cuts in services that we rely on for a civilised way of life.

If the Tories are re-elected people would have more chance of winning the lottery than seeing police patrolling their streets or seeing waiting lists in the NHS coming down.

Most workers have seen little or no evidence of any recovery in living standards arising from real economic growth based on investment and productivity gains.
