In the final PMQs before the local elections, Sir Keir Starmer kept to Labour’s core campaign message on the cost of living crisis.
Turning specifically to the issue, Sir Keir Starmer said the situation was “blindingly obvious months ago” and asked why the prime minister is the only leader in the G7 to have raised taxes amid the crisis.
Starmer called the PM the “Comical Ali of the cost of living crisis”.

Since you are here
Since you are here, we wanted to ask for your help.
Journalism in Britain is under threat. The government is becoming increasingly authoritarian and our media is run by a handful of billionaires, most of whom reside overseas and all of them have strong political allegiances and financial motivations.
Our mission is to hold the powerful to account. It is vital that free media is allowed to exist to expose hypocrisy, corruption, wrongdoing and abuse of power. But we can't do it without you.
