Eastleigh Lib Dems call on Tory MP to oppose “shambolic” budget

EASTLEIGH’S Lib Dem parliamentary candidate has called on the town’s Conservative MP to oppose the Government’s “shambolic” budget.

Lib Dem parliamentary contender, Liz Jarvis, called Chancellor Kwasi Kwarteng’s mini-budget announcement last Friday a “reckless gamble” and urged Paul Holmes, the MP for Eastleigh, to oppose the government’s plans.

Ms Jarvis said: “Paul Holmes should listen to the concerns from our community, vote down this shambolic budget and back Liberal Democrat calls to support local people and businesses instead.

“The Chancellor’s out of touch and shambolic budget has been exposed as a reckless gamble. 

“The Conservatives are giving huge unfunded tax cuts to the banks while neglecting local health services and hammering ordinary people with years of tax hikes.” cont)
