BOLTON MP Julie Hilling has hit out at George Osborne over his handling of the economy.
Ms Hilling — who represents Bolton West — was talking during a Parliamentary debate on defence during which the Chancellor was also grilled about the loss of Britain’s Triple A credit rating.
Ms Hilling said: “The Chancellor says that he will not run away from dealing with the country’s debts.
“When will he accept that the debts have actually run away with him, and that he has got no answers? When will he resign?”
Mr Osborne replied: “We are confronting the problems that the honourable lady’s party left this country.
“If she is seriously trying to blame us for the fact that there was an 11.5 per cent budget deficit, or for a financial crisis that was brewing while the Shadow Chancellor was regulating the city, she needs to read her history books.”
