Today's Budget is a “desperate deception” as families in Kenilworth & Southam constituency face soaring bills

Kenilworth & Southam’s Liberal Democrats have labelled the Chancellor’s budget announcement today a “desperate deception”, with income tax bills still set to rise for local people.

Kenilworth & Southam's Liberal Democrats have said that local residents will see through this “deception” by the Chancellor and that people don’t want more “empty promises” from this Conservative government whilst “local health services are left on their knees”.

As the Liberal Democrat Parliamentary Candidate for Kenilworth & Southam, and the principal challenger to the Conservatives in the area, my view is that this Budget will barely touch the sides for families and pensioners around here, who are facing soaring mortgage bills while the cost of the weekly shop goes through the roof.

People in Kenilworth & Southam know that their tax bills will remain sky high after this budget, and the Chancellor is attempting a desperate deception after years of income tax hikes.

People don’t want more Conservative empty promises while our local health services are left on their knees. They want proper change through a General Election so we can kick this Conservative government out of office.
