Conservative budget cuts to hit all families, warns PM

Conservative budget cuts to hit all families, warns PM
3rd May 2010

The Prime Minister, Gordon Brown, has warned that the budget cuts that will be put into place if the Conservative party wins the up and coming general election will hit all families. Mr Brown said that all families would find it difficult to avoid the budget cuts that the Tories would put into place.
The Prime Minister outlined a number of cuts that would affect average families if the Tory Party won the election, stating that these would form part of the Conservative party's emergency budget. This included the axing of tax credits, the cutting of school and police budgets, and a reduction in the help available for students and the unemployed.
The Prime Minister was making his speech in Sunderland, and claimed that pretty soon there would be no families left that had not been targeted by the Tory party budget cuts. He said that within weeks of getting into power the Tory Party would inflict damage through a series of budget cuts that would adversely affect average families.
As the election draws ever closer Mr Brown has been doing all that he can to persuade potential voters that a Conservative or Liberal Democrat government would put the already fragile economy at risk, and that only Labour could make the necessary decisions and take the measures needed to ensure that the economy did not fall back into recession having only recently emerged from the deepest recession seen in many decades.
He added that it was the economy that would be at stake on the May 6th elections, telling listeners that it was their future so vote for it. The Prime Minister also took the time to highlight the plans of the Labour party if it was to stay in power after the general election.
In the meantime the Conservative party has accused Labour of trying to make consumers fearful about its plans if it wins the general election, and has been taking time to remind consumers of its plans with regards to helping poor and vulnerable members of society.
