Labour press release
Responding to David Cameron's comments in The Sunday Telegraph, Labour's Vice-Chair Michael Dugher said:
"David Cameron's comments show he continues to be a weak Prime Minister in a desperately out of touch government. This is just political manoeuvring trying to hide the fact he is unable to tackle the big challenges facing the future of the country.
"After a disastrous result in the Tory target seat of Eastleigh, David Cameron is now desperately trying to claim that he stands on the political centre-ground. But after so many broken promises, this is once again just more of the same.
"Cameron cannot be on the centre-ground if he is cutting taxes for millionaires while asking everyone else to pay more. He cannot be on the centre-ground after he betrayed the solemn promises he made about safeguarding the NHS, not cutting front line policing and protecting the environment. And he can't be on the centre-ground as long as he refuses to listen to families and businesses across this country who are pleading with him to abandon the failed plan that has left Britain with a flatlining economy and a massive squeeze on the middle and low earning families.
"Meanwhile, Cameron's Cabinet colleagues are more interested in posturing to the backbenches who will pick the next Tory leader than anything which might help the people of Britain.
"At a time when bills are rising and living standards are falling, Britain needs a One Nation government which will tackle these issues and focus on jobs and growth.
"David Cameron still doesn't get it. He is just playing politics whilst serving up more of the same failing and unfair policies"
