General Election LIVE — Rishi Sunak launches Tory manifesto as PM promises tax cuts in bid to move polls

What is Rishi expected to say today?

The PM will tell supporters in Northamptonshire today: “We want to create a society in which everyone has a chance to own.

“So, we will abolish stamp duty entirely for first-time buyers purchasing a house up to £425,000, and introduce a new help to buy scheme to get more people on the property ladder.

“All part of our plan to build an ownership society, where more and more people have the security and pride of home ownership.

“Keir Starmer takes a very different view. He says he’s a socialist, and we know what socialists always do: take more of your money.

“And we know that the plans Labour have already announced will require them to increase taxes on working households by £2,094.

“We Conservatives have had to take difficult decisions because of Covid. But we are now cutting taxes for earners, parents and pensioners. 

“We are the party of Margaret Thatcher and Nigel Lawson, a party, unlike Labour, that believes in sound money.

“In this party, we believe that it is morally right that those who can work do work, and that hard work is rewarded with people being able to keep more of their own money.

“We will ensure that we have lower welfare so we can lower taxes.”
