After six years in power, the Chancellor last week confirmed what we all knew about the Conservative’s long-term economic plan – despite years of painful public sector cuts, the Tories have not balanced Britain’s books.

Instead they have raised our national debt while presiding over the biggest fall in living standards since the Victorian era.

Without any plan for the greatest economic challenge of a generation, things are only going to get worse.

Brexit will mean economic growth will slow, while the price of our shopping will soon rise.

As for when our NHS hospitals will receive the promised £150million a week, your guess is as good as mine.

With 12,000 children living in poverty in Bethnal Green and Bow and its schools and public services chronically underfunded, the government could have eased the burden on struggling East Enders.

Instead, once again, they have failed.
