Liz’s plan to help hard-up Brits this winter won’t touch the sides – Sun readers can trust me to step in


FAMILIES are facing a long, hard winter with rising bills. LIZ’s pledge to bring forward tax cuts to October from April are today savaged by rival Rishi Sunak.

Yet Liz’s plan to deal with that is to give a big bung to large businesses and the well-off, leaving those who most need help out in the cold.

Worse still, she has said she will not provide direct support payments to those who are feeling the pinch most.

Scrapping the health and social care levy will give the average worker around £170.

But someone on the National Living Wage will get less than £60 for the year.

Pensioners will not get a penny.

And her corporation tax cuts don’t benefit small businesses — they just put money back in the coffers of the biggest companies with the largest profits.

These tax cuts simply won’t touch the sides.

We need clear-eyed realism, not starry-eyed boosterism.

That means bolder action to protect people from the worst of the winter.

I have the right plan and experience to help people through.

Southamptonjournal readers can trust me to step in as I’ve done so before to help those who need it most.

She plans to suspend the green levy on energy bills and called for major reforms.

But hitting back in The Sun Mr Sunak says her plans won’t “touch the sides” in helping families tackle the cost of living crisis.

And he says scrapping the health and social care levy would only save someone on the Living Wage £59 a year, and a median earner £170.

He accuses Ms Truss of “starry-eyed boosterism” with claims a downturn can be seen off.
