Michael Dugher MP, Labour's Vice-Chair, responding to David Cameron's speech at the launch of the Conservative Party local election campaign, said:
“The election does offer voters a real choice. Between the Tory tax cut for millionaires while millions pay more and Labour's plans to cancel this unfair tax cut and help working families. It's a choice between a failed Tory economic plan which has left nearly a million young people out of work and Labour's plans to grow the economy and guarantee jobs for our young people. And it’s a choice between David Cameron's cuts to nurses and the police and Labour who would stand up for patients, protect the NHS and cut crime, not police.
“Under David Cameron the country is heading in the wrong direction. It's only as One Nation Labour that we'll turn it around.”
