Labour shameless and hypocritical on VAT

After three years attacking the Coalition for raising VAT, Labour’s Shadow Chief Secretary to the Treasury Rachel Reeves last night admitted they would not reverse it.

Commenting, Liberal Democrat Treasury Spokesperson, Stephen Williams said:

“Labour have spent the last three years aggressively attacking the Coalition for raising VAT. Now they admit they won’t reduce it. This is rank hypocrisy from a party that has no answers to the big questions of the day – how to fix the economy, create jobs and help people with the cost of living.

“Liberal Democrats have taken tough decisions in the national interest in order to clean up Labour’s mess, and Labour has called us every name under the sun for doing so. They have been utterly shameless and deeply hypocritical.”
