TUC – Chancellor’s promise of “long-term economic growth” is “farcical”

Responding to the Chancellor’s promise today (Tuesday) of a “Budget for Long Term Growth” TUC General Secretary Paul Nowak said:

“The Chancellor’s promises are farcical.

“The Conservatives have been in power for 14 years. It’s a bit late for them to come up with up a long-term growth plan – especially when our economy is in recession.

“This is desperate spin from a government that has manifestly failed on growth, living standards and public services.”
