'Take responsibility!' Tory MP backlash over Truss cuts after huge Labour poll lead

Date:


Conservative Party MPs are furiously lashing out at Liz Truss and Kwasi Kwarteng over the huge tax cuts made in last week’s ‘mini budget’ that has seen Labour take a huge lead in one major poll. Julian Smith took to Twitter to call on the Government to “take responsibility” for the link between the mini-budget and the impact on millions of Britons’ mortgages. He also wants the Government to “make clear that it will do everything possible to stabilise markets and protect public services”.

Mr Smith wrote: “The Government must scrap 45p, take responsibility for the link between last Friday and the impact on peoples mortgages and make clear that it will do everything possible to stabilise markets & protect public services.” 

Fellow Tory MP George Freeman also took to Twitter to share a tweet from Election Maps UK that said the Conservative’s polling average has fallen below 30 percent for the first time since the aftermath of the 2019 EU elections.

He wrote alongside this: £This is now a serious crisis with a lot at stake. “A time for cool heads & calm leadership.

“The economic package of borrowing & tax cuts announced last week clearly can’t command market or voter confidence. The Cabinet must meet fast to agree with PM & CX a Plan B which can hold.”
