Keir Starmer likens government to cowboy builders over concrete crisis
Keir Starmer has likened Rishi Sunaks government to a group of cowboy builders during a prime ministers questions in which the Labour leader sought to portray the prime minister as out of touch over the concrete crisis.
Starmer also contrasted the chaos faced in the state system with the private education enjoyed by the PM and his children, saying Sunak neglected the problem because he saw it as a problem affecting other peoples children.
During a PMQs in which he used all of his questions to lambast Sunak over the issue, Starmer said: On the one hand, we have him saying its nothing to do with him. On the other side, we have the facts.
The truth is, this crisis is the inevitable result of 13 years of cutting corners, botch jobs, sticking-plaster politics. Its the sort of thing you expect from cowboy builders, saying that everyone else is wrong, everyone else is to blame, protesting theyve done an effing good job, even as the ceiling falls in.
The difference is that in this case, the cowboys are running the country.
