Commenting on Rishi Sunak’s speech today to the Conservative Party conference, UNISON general secretary Christina McAnea said:
“The country is broken after 13 years of poor government. The prime minister’s focus should be on fixing the mess created by his ministers and those of the four earlier woeful Conservative administrations.
“Under his party the UK has become an international embarrassment. People have been pummelled by a cost of living crisis no one in government appears to have a handle on and public services are in a state of permanent crisis.
“These policy wheezes are a last desperate roll of the dice from a government that knows it’s living on borrowed time.
“There is but one solution. That’s for Rishi Sunak to call an election now and let the people elect a government able to put right the many wrongs of the past decade.”
