Broken Tory promises


From balancing the books and running a budget surplus to delivering a strong NHS, the past two years included plenty of broken pledges.

1 Promise : We will balance the books by 2017 and then run a budget surplus.

Reality : The deficit is still £50billion a year and will not even be closed by 2020.

2 Promise: We will not increase VAT, Income Tax or National Insurance Contributions.

Reality : Chancellor hiked NICs in first Budget before being shamed into a U-turn a week later.

3 Promise : We will work to end child poverty.

Reality : Child poverty is on the rise and forecast to get even worse when new welfare cuts kick in.

4 Promise : We will deliver a strong NHS.

Reality : Waiting times have soared, A&E is in meltdown and medics were forced to strike.   Have a look how bad things are in YOUR area.

5 Promise : We will cut net migration to below 100,000 people a year.

Reality : Migration is running at 273,000 a year.

6 Promise : We will safeguard British interests in the EU single market.

Reality : Theresa May is pulling us out of the single market as part of her plan for Brexit .

7 Promise : We will protect schools funding.

Reality : Funding is being cut by 6.5% with many inner city schools facing even bigger losses.

Reality : Only half of mental health trusts say they received a real-terms increase to budgets.


9 Promise : We will abolish long-term youth unemployment.

Reality : Latest stats show 80,000 aged 16-24 have been unemployed for more than 12 months.


10 Promise : We will recover £500million a year from migrants who use the NHS by the middle of the next Parliament.

Reality : Barely half of that is being recovered.

11 Promise : We will give workers the right to three days’ volunteering leave a year on full pay.

Reality : It never happened.

13 Promise : We will ban wild animals in circuses.

Reality : Tory MPs blocked the Bill in Parliament.

Reality: NHS has a staffing crisis while pay rises for key workers are still pegged below inflation.

15 Promise : We will clamp down on dangerous extremists with new Extremism Disruption Orders.

16 Promise : We will introduce a new Victims’ Law to enshrine key rights for victims of crime.

Reality : It never happened.
