Davey: Boris Johnson is living in a parallel universe

Responding to the Prime Minister’s speech at the Conservative party conference, Leader of the Liberal Democrats Ed Davey said: “Boris Johnson’s speech was the most out of touch display by a Prime Minister in decades, he has created a cost of living crisis which he refuses to fix.

“The Conservative Party conference may as well be happening in a parallel universe. Johnson pretends that somehow long queues at the petrol station and empty shelves in the supermarket are all part of his cunning plan and blames anyone he can for the wreckage he is causing: UK businesses, journalists and the British public.

“People across the country are working hard and making big sacrifices, yet the Prime Minister refuses to offer any meaningful support. Instead he’s hitting millions of working families with an unfair jobs tax and a £1000 Universal Credit cut, and leaving them to fend for themselves as their energy bills explode.”

“No wonder millions of people across the Blue Wall, sick of being taken for granted by Boris Johnson, are turning to the Liberal Democrats in their droves.”
