Keir Starmer: PM and Chancellor Tory Thelma and Louise

Boris Johnson’s government tries to move on from the Partygate scandal.  This as it unveils the flagship policy of the administration in the form of the long-awaited Levelling Up White Paper.

But Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer drew attention to freezing income tax rates.  Also tuition fee repayment rates and increases to council tax from April are examples of “stealth taxes” on working people.

He went on to say that the Prime Minister and the Chancellor were nothing less than the Tory Thelma and Louise.  As in the movie – prepared to jump off a cliff!

Sir Keir says the government cannot “hide reality” that the tax burden on workers is at its highest for 70 years.

What are your thoughts about this?  Is levelling up the answer to economic problem?  Was it a good debate in PMQs?
