Tories say weak pound shows weak Government

The Conservatives have accused Labour of “bankrupting Britain” as the pound hit a new record low against the euro of 1.024.

Conservative Shadow chancellor George Osborne also warned about the implications of the weak pound on Britain’s standing in the international community.

He says: “As Gordon Brown himself says, a weak currency is a reflection of a weak economy and a weak government.

“Labour is bankrupting Britain again and the rest of the world knows it.”
