Surrey County Council has shown “contempt for working families” after Conservative councillors awarded themselves a 60% pay rise, a government minister says.
“It is deeply concerning that the county council has chosen to act in a way which has not only prompted the resignation of their entire independent remuneration panel, but shows contempt for the working families of the area who pay their council tax.

5 reasons Labour can never be trusted with the economy again

  1. They were responsible for Britain’s longest and deepest recession since the War – making working taxpayers poorer and less financially secure. (Source: Office for National Statistics, Quarterly National Accounts)
  2. Unemployment increased by nearly half a million under Labour – with hundreds of thousands of families left without the security of a pay packet. (ONS, Labour Market Statistics, Table A02)
  3. The number of people claiming unemployment benefit rose by 82 per cent between 2005 and 2010 – under Labour, our economy did not deliver for those who wanted to work and play by the rules. (ONS, Labour Market Statistics, Table CLA01)
  4. They left 292,000 more young people unemployed than when they came into office – a rise of 45%. (ONS, Labour Market Statistics)
  5. They left Britain with the biggest budget deficit in our peacetime history – with working taxpayers forced to pick up the tab for Labour’s reckless spending. (ONS, Public Sector Finances)

The facts are clear: Labour wrecked the economy and failed working taxpayers.
