Labour put up spending to £1.2 trillion which would mean a tax burden of £2,400 per taxpayer

Truthfullness 1 / 5

Fact checked by: fullfact


£1.2 trillion is based on numbers the Conservatives worked on before Labour released their manifesto. It was an amount spread over 5 years and was based on flawed assumptions.

And £2,400 is not a fair claim either as Labour would not fund through higher income tax for everybody—they would tax the wealthiest more.

Do you agree this deserves 1 / 5 for truthfullness?
