Tories not to blame for poverty under a Tory government says Tory Minister Priti Patel

“The Conservatives have come under fire after a senior minister gave a disastrous interview claiming the government was “not to blame” for poverty.

Labour said the comments from Priti Patel, the home secretary, were another example of the “cruelty” of the Tory government, in a fresh blow to Boris Johnson’s election efforts.

It comes as the Conservatives complained about an interview Michael Gove gave to Channel 4, where the top Tory accused the broadcaster of political bias.”

Note: this comes after news that Labour complained about bias at Sky where its general election set had “Brexit election” plastered all over it.
