Labour vice-chair Michael Dugher has hit out at the Prime Minister, after David Cameron insisted he was engaged in fighting for an "aspiration nation" at the party's spring conference today.
Mr Dugher said:
When the Tories talk about aspiration, they mean looking after their friends at the top, whilst people on low and middle incomes can go whistle.
Cameron gives speeches claiming he's helping people, but he's actually delivering a tax cut for millionaires whilst asking millions of working people to pay more.
We need a change of direction with a One Nation Labour Government to build a country where everyone has a stake and prosperity is fairly shared. Fat chance of that with David Cameron.
