Mid Dorset and North Poole’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. 

Mid Dorset and North Poole’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”. 

Liberal Democrat spokesperson for Mid Dorset and North Poole’s, Vikki Slade said

“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 Mid Dorset and North Poole 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. 

“It’s clear the choice Mid Dorset and North Poole at the next election will be between an out-of-touch Conservative MP or a hard–working Liberal Democrat local champion.”
