Andy Burnham MP, Labour’s Shadow Health Secretary, commenting on David Cameron’s speech to Conservative Party Conference, said:

“This was probably David Cameron’s most old fashioned Party conference speech yet, packed with rat-a-tat lists that don’t stand up to scrutiny and some rather unconvincing attacks on Labour.  David Cameron didn’t take responsibility for the decisions he has got wrong since taking office and tried to dismiss genuine concern about child benefit cuts with a single throw away line.  The party faithful may be happy but meanwhile David Cameron seems intent on squeezing hardworking families and making them pay for his government's cuts."
