Research by the Resolution Foundation found poorer households will suffer a fall in their incomes, leading to the biggest rise in inequality since the days of Margaret Thatcher. Commenting on the news Shadow Chancellor Susan Kramer said:
“This report confirms the Conservative Brexit Government’s grim betrayal of those struggling to get by. The falling pound and rising inflation is creating a Brexit gap between the wealthy elite who had everything to gain from Brexit and the millions of ordinary people who were promised the earth but sold a con.
“If destroying our economy, seeing prices rocket and incomes fall is Theresa May’s grand plan to help the “Just About Managing” then she is the worst master strategist since Baldrick.”
