Labour’s Low-Budget Rishi Mocking

The Treasury got treated to a classic-of-the-genre stunt by the opposition this morning as Labour highlighted Rishi’s 15 tax rises* with a visit by Southside staff… dressed as Rishi Sunak. Brandishing 15 tax bills that increased in size one by one, Labour staff posed for photos in front of the small smattering of press. Just one problem – their resemblance to Rishi was somewhat lacking…

It’s nice Starmer’s found a useful role for Richard Burgon…
