PM’s end of austerity claim shows she’s out of step with the country, says UNISON

Dave Prentis comments on the Prime Minister’s speech to the Conservative Party conference

Commenting on the Prime Minister’s speech to the Conservative Party conference in Birmingham today (Wednesday), UNISON general secretary Dave Prentis said:

“Theresa May says she’s ending austerity, but that rings as hollow as her claim to be properly funding the NHS.

“Anyone working in a hospital, school, college or care home knows how stretched public services are and will continue to be.

“After last week’s messages of hope from Labour, the government is out of ideas, out of energy and most importantly out of step with the country.

“It’s time for her to call an election and quick step aside so the British people can have their say.”
