Unite, the UK's largest union, has accused David Cameron of conjuring up ‘the politics of fear’ during his speech to the Conservative Party conference.
Unite General Secretary Len McCluskey claims the Prime Minister attempted to "hide the truth" about his government's austerity measures.
David Cameron says that we must ‘sink or swim’ as a country – yet, he has cut the life belt for the millions of Britons struggling to find work and juggling to make ends meet with squeezed household incomes.
He has conjured up the politics of fear – always the last resort for a politician facing the reality of their failed policies. It was a speech devoid of hope aimed at frightening people into submission, and accepting the coalition’s unfair and divisive policies.
ITV News got instant reaction to David Cameron's speech from voters in Corby where a by-election is due to be held in November.
The Prime Minister said the power of enterprise and aspiration would help overcome the economic crisis.
Emphasising there's nothing complicated about him, the Prime Minister will stress how compassion is a key part of his philosophy for the UK.
