Cameron's land of opportunity is for 'privileged few'

Labour MP Michael Dugher has said that the "land of opportunity" that David Cameron refers to is only for the "privileged few".

Under Cameron, prices have risen faster than wages in 38 out of 39 months and average pay is down by almost £1,500 a year since the General Election.

Rather than standing up for hardworking people he has shown he always puts a privileged few first, prioritising a tax cut for those earning over £150,000 a year while everyone else pays more ...

David Cameron only offers a land of opportunity for just a privileged few, not for the many.

– Michael Dugher MP, Labour’s Vice Chair
