Boris Johnson is “hammering” working people while failing to offer guarantees over protecting homeowners and clearing the NHS backlog, Sir Keir Starmer has claimed. The Labour leader questioned why the Prime Minister was breaking his manifesto promise by increasing national insurance to tackle health and social care problems, while not providing assurances over what the policy will achieve. Mr Johnson accused Sir Keir of delivering a “minestrone of nonsense” and insisted his plans will “deal with NHS backlogs” in order to fix the care system.
