Labour secured an opposition day debate this week on the rising levels of inequality and poverty in our country and how this is placing a roadblock to social mobility.

I couldn’t help but raise my utter exasperation that at a time when we keep getting told there is no money left by the UK Government, one of the contenders for the job of Prime Minister – Boris Johnson MP – wants to give a tax cut to those earning between £50-£80,000.

At a time when unemployment in Delyn remains above 1,000 people for 9 consecutive months, over-75s are losing their free TV licences and child poverty in some wards is at 30% I believe there are much better uses for this money.
