May on tax threshold - Kramer responds

After Theresa May’s remarks on the personal tax allowance Liberal Democrat Shadow Chancellor, Susan Kramer said:

“Again Theresa May is adopting Lib Dem policies in a desperate bid to ditch her nasty party image.

“It was the Liberal Democrats who raised the personal tax allowance. It was our number one demand in the coalition negotiations. Now, realising the threat they face from the Liberal Democrats, the Conservatives have stolen our policies.

“Theresa May’s dogmatic pursuit of hard Brexit is going to make everyone in the UK poorer, and it is very hard to see how she will continue to be able to take more people out of tax if we end up with £100bn Brexit black hole in the public finances. You can't have a hard Brexit and a strong economy.”
