General election 2017: Tories accused of being ‘utter hypocrites’ for wanting winter fuel payment cuts for England but not Scotland – politics live

19 May

I think the mask has slipped on the Conservative party with the publication of their manifesto.

I think the nasty party is well and truly back and, if you look at them taking the winter fuel allowance away from 10 million pensioners, ending the triple lock, a tax on people who get dementia, I actually think that lots and lots of people are taking a second look at what the Tories are actually offering in this campaign and contrasting it to Labour: the investment in health and education and building a fairer society, guaranteeing pensioners the winter fuel allowance and the other benefits, including the triple lock … I think it’s all to play for in this campaign.
