The British Conservative Party has betrayed voters' expectations on Brexit and the migration issue. This was supported by the leader of the Labor Party, Keir Starmer in an article in the newspaper “The Telegraph”. “It's easy to look at the UK today and despair,” Starmer began in the article. “Public services in pieces that no longer serve citizens, families burdened by the anxiety of increasingly expensive mortgages and food prices, neighborhoods plagued by crime and anti-social behavior,” he continued. In these difficult conditions, “the government resembles a sinking ship,” Starmer accused. In an attempt to send a message to Conservative voters, the Labor leader praised the memory of Margaret Thatcher, who "tried to rescue the country from torpor by unleashing our natural entrepreneurship".
Labor “has changed a lot in the last three years” and “while we were getting closer to voters, the Conservative Party has steadily moved further away”. “Years of spreading false promises, cynical lies” by conservatives have meant they now have to “reap the inevitable consequences”. “They talked about fiscal prudence while wasting billions, burdening the country with debt and raising tax pressure to record levels,” Starmer said.
