The Conservatives’ failure to curb rising bills has cost families almost £6,000 a year since 2010… Labour’s plan for real change will save average families over £6,700.

Truthfullness 2 / 5

Fact checked by: fullfact


These are very broad, and exaggerated figures. For example one of the big savings factored in is rail season tickets; Only 5% of people use a train more than 3 times per week.

There’s other questionable factors relating to childcare, energy, free school meals and prescriptions.

My assessment is that Labour have taken the worse case scenario for a family under conservatives, and compared it to a projected future best case scenario under Labour.

Do you agree this deserves 2 / 5 for truthfullness?
