Chancellor claims 'there are no unemployed people' in Britain

The Chancellor made the statement as he painted a rosy picture of an economy bouncing back from the long downturn.



Philip Hammond has been fiercely criticised ahead of this week’s make-or-break Budget, after claiming: “There are no unemployed people”.
The Chancellor made the statement as he painted a rosy picture of an economy bouncing back from the long downturn, with both inflation and the deficit falling.
“Where are all these unemployed people? There are no unemployed people,” he asked, on the BBC’s Andrew Marr Show.
However, the most recent unemployment figures show the jobless count stood at 1.42m between July and September this year.
Labour seized on the gaffe, Shadow Cabinet Office minister Jon Trickett saying: “The Chancellor is living on another planet.
“The Tories have become even more out of touch and are now so inwards looking that they have no clue of the experiences of ordinary people suffering from 7 years of Tory austerity.”
The mistake comes at the worst possible time for Mr Hammond, as Theresa May continues to weigh up pressure from Brexit-backing Tories to sack him.
