Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer accuses the Government of trying to "spin" the budget delivered yesterday by chancellor Jeremy Hunt.
Mr Starmer says "whichever way the Government tried to spin the autumn statement, the reality is that living standards are dropping, the tax burden is going up and that disposable income at the end of this government is going to be less than it was at the beginning for ordinary working people." The opposition leader also adds that his party would face "tough choices" if it wins the next general election, due to "13 years of failure".
