This is the real reason Labour wants Parliament recalled over the cost-of-living crisis

People say to me: “What’s the point of Labour unveiling a policy on this, or demanding that Parliament be recalled to debate it? They’re not in power. They can’t do anything.”

No, they aren’t, but there is a very good reason for Labour to agitate about action that its leaders – and those of the other Opposition parties – think the Tory government should be taking.

So when we read (in this instance, on the BBC),

Labour has called for MPs to return to Parliament early to deal with the cost-of-living crisis.

Thangam Debbonaire, the shadow leader of the House of Commons, has written to the prime minister asking him to recall MPs two weeks early on 22 August.

She said new policies were needed before a rise in the energy price cap in October.

we should recognise that Labour isn’t just saying this in a vain bid to see it happen.

It’s being said to highlight the fact that, despite such action being necessary, the Conservatives aren’t making it happen.
