Tories claim credit for EU credit card charge banCommenting in Wessex Scene on the recent story that the Conservative Government claimed credit for implementing an EU directive, Southampton University's Liberal Democrat President and Bitterne campaigner Olivia Reed commented:

"This is a true embarrassment for the Conservatives, they have been caught red-handed lying to the British people, trying to claim responsibility for a fantastic EU directive."

She later added:

"Theresa May's Conservative Government is clearly out of ideas, so they've started passing off someone else's work as their own.

"They're so preoccupied with making a hash of Brexit that they're neglecting everything else - which is bad news for the country, with an increase in rough sleeping, an increase in child poverty, and a National Health Service that is stuggling to cope in the face of staff shortages and chronic underinvestment."
