The Liberal Democrats would do the most for the poorest people

Truthfullness 5 / 5

Fact checked by: realitycheck


This checks out according to a study from the Resolution Foundation think-tank. However other parties were not included.

Based on benefits and taxation it says the poorest 10% would be 25% better off under the Lib Dems, 20% better off under Labour, and about the same under the Tories. Labour also has pledged a £10 minimum wage, which would help.

Also, child poverty is predicted to be reduced by a further 600,000 compared to Conservative policies, and 50,000 compared to Labour policies.

Do you agree this deserves 5 / 5 for truthfullness?
