Karl gives Shadow Chancellor, John McDonnell, a wet welcome to Conservative Lincoln

Karl McCartney JP MP, Lincoln’s Parliamentary Candidate for the General Election, said: “I am delighted that the IRA apologist and sympathiser, Labour’s Shadow Chancellor and keen Marxist, John McDonnell, has visited Lincoln today, but disappointed he has brought miserable weather with him. Today's weather is indicative of what the outlook for our Country’s economy would be if he was ever allowed to be in charge of the Treasury.

“Mr McDonnell’s visit to our beautiful and historic City also comes the day after it was revealed that there is a £58 billion black hole in the Labour Manifesto when his and Corbyn’s spending plans and tax increases were put under scrutiny. And it is families and small businesses that will pay for this profligacy by the untrustworthy Labour Party with higher taxes, more debt and fewer jobs.

“Only a vote for our Prime Minister Theresa May and the Conservatives will ensure that our Country has the clear and decisive leadership we need to both negotiate our withdrawal from the failing and undemocratic European Union and continue rebuilding our economy after Gordon Brown and Labour’s Great Recession back in 2007-10.”
