Gary Neville’s attack on Rishi Sunak after Spring Statement threatens 1.3 million with poverty

NOT smiling: Gary Neville.

Gary Neville has excoriated Tory Chancellor Rishi Sunak after analysis of his Spring Statement has found 1.3million people – including half a million children – will be dragged below the poverty line.

Analysis by the Resolution Foundation think tank has calculated that the typical working-age household will see their real income fall 4 per cent next year – a loss of £1,100.

Benefits will rise at less than half inflation.

A promised 1p cut on income tax from 2024 should only impact those on salaries between £49,100 and £50,300, the experts have said.

The Manchester United legend – and enthusiastic political commentator – had a few things to say about this:

He posted on social media: “Hey Rishi Sunak you’ve just pushed 1.3m people into absolute poverty this year including 500,000 children. UC [ Universal Credit ] rise abolished , NI [National Insurance] increase, not feeding children in a pandemic etc.

“You’re building a truly great record of achievements. Keep smiling for those photo opportunities.”

Yes, Sunak can keep smiling.

We’ll see if he can still smile when it’s time for his mugshot to be taken.
