Local UKIP Candidate Blames Hard Times On Years Of Overspending

Gary Shores, the UKIP Parliamentary Candidate for Beverley and Holderness says both the current and previous governments years of over spending are to blame for the hard times many families are feeling this Christmas.

Mr Shores said;

“Now the festive season is upon us and we find it hard to make ends meet, we need to remember the reasons why we are feeling the pinch and have such austerity.

“Four years ago, David Cameron and Nick Clegg “came together in the national interest”. Or so they told us at the time. The dire state of the public finances demanded it, apparently.”

“How have they been getting on with sorting it all out? By any objective yardstick they have failed get a grip on our public finances.”

“Debt, the House of Commons library’s briefing paper understatedly puts it, “continues to rise”. Far from paying down debt, this Tory government has been accumulating ever more of it.”

“This year, the government will have spent £100 Billion more than it takes in taxes. Borrowing in the first six months of 2014 was 6 percent higher than over the same period the year before.”

“Behind anything else the chancellor might choose to tell us, lies one undeniable fact; Public sector net debt will increase yet again to almost 80 percent of GDP.

“Things are not getting better. That magic money merry-go-round of low interest rates and Quantitative Easing just makes it feel that way.”

“Cameron and his Tory MPs are full of Gordon Brown style bluster. Statistics intended to mask the true state of our public finances are cockily bandied about. Clever wheezes and gimmicks scatter the truth.”

“But remember, for most of the time he was chancellor, Gordon Brown was seen by many of the pundits as a genius. It is only with the benefit of hindsight that we can see how recklessly he ran this country’s finances.”

“So, too, with George. Osborne’s continuity of Browns approach to public finances means that the Coalition will incur more debt in five years that Gordon managed in thirteen.”

“The Tories have failed us, just as labour failed us. It is time to choose, it’s time to change, it’s time to vote Ukip.”

Mr Shores a former member of will be standing in the  in May as he aims to become the MP for Beverley and Holderness.

  1. What a load of codswallop from Scholes.

    The “hard times we’re all facing” is not due to overspending at all. Its due to the bankers and the impact that had on tax revenues. The government decided the way to reduce the deficit was to put most of the burden on the public,especially the less well off. So they inflicted austerity on us, but failed to pay off the deficit because the economy & tax revenue has failed to recover so far. So all pain and little gain.
    And while saying Vote UKIP, Scholes omits to mention their economic policy. That might just be because it is to give massive tax cuts to those on over £50,000 and scrap inheritance tax on the wealthy – which will cost many billions and make the tax shortfall and deficit worse. The last thing we need is this sort of illiterate economic policy
    Vote UKIP, get nonsense .
