TaxPayers’ Alliance responds to Boris Johnson’s speech to Conservative Party conference

For immediate release


Responding to Boris Johnson’s speech to Conservative Party conference, John O’Connell, chief executive of the TaxPayers' Alliance, said:

“Many will welcome the Prime Minister’s rallying cry that taxpayers can’t be expected to foot the bill for evermore state spending.  

“But paying lip service to ‘Uncle Sugar’ doesn’t sweeten the deal on Boris’ endless spending commitments, such as massive investments in green energy, that may leave Britain’s bank balance in the red.

“If Boris wants to build back better and boost investment, he needs to get on with the kind of tax cutting agenda he constantly talks up.”
