Tories try to whitewash their economic failures – ahead of the Budget? Have the facts

Economy with the truth: I know Boris Johnson hasn’t been prime minister for a while but the words are just as appropriate for Rishi Sunak and his Chancellor, Jeremy Hunt.

The Conservatives have tweeted a nonsense claim that the UK economy has recorded the fastest growth out of all G7 countries – probably in an attempt to whitewash their economic failures ahead of next month’s budget statement.

It’s entirely possible that the four per cent growth claimed by the Tory government was the highest of 2022 – but the UK was coming from behind everybody else due to the Tory government’s Covid pandemic cock-ups (and Brexit), and remains behind everybody else overall.

And matters are due to get worse, with no growth at all projected for 2023.

Watch Peter Stefanovic’s video clip, below, for the facts about the UK economy.

He’s promising to repeat these facts every day if he has to, and I hope he does.

It might be the only way to make sure the truth gets to everybody, when the mainstream media are full of Tory half-truths and lies.
