Prime Minister's Questions

Stephen Hepburn MP for the Jarrow Constituency has took the Prime Minister to task over her record in Government during Prime Minister’s Questions recently. 

The Jarrow Constituency MP called on the Prime Minister:

“What would the Prime Minister boast is her Government’s greatest achievement: the Brexit shambles, rising knife crime, record numbers using food banks, pay packets worth less than a decade ago, or the smallest Army since Waterloo?

The Prime Minister replied:

“I will tell the hon. Gentleman what I am proud of the Government achieving. We see more people in work than ever before. We have seen tax cuts for 32 million people, we are seeing wages rising, the deficit falling and debt coming down. We are restoring this country’s finances to build a brighter future for all our constituents.”

Stephen Hepburn MP added:

“The Prime Minister’s answer is exactly the kind of answer I would expect from a government that has ran out of ideas.

“She has failed on Brexit, failed to tackle rising knife crime, and overseen a worrying increase in struggling families using food banks.  She’s failed in her job in running this country.  We need a General Election now and a Labour government now so we can sort out the mess the Tories have made in the running of this country.”
