Rebecca Long-Bailey News

RL-B appeared on the Marr show on Sunday 12th March 2017 and, as many of her colleagues have done previously, floundered when asked to explain how labour would fund their promises. She stuck doggedly to "independent research reveals" and "£70Bn by 2020" raised from reversing tax cuts, despite being asked repeatedly by Andrew Marr to break the figure down and his insistance the the real total was close to £30Bn. A later Labour party press release admitted that it was Labour Party research and "by 2022" .

This was reported in some detail by many of the Monday newspapers including the Independent, Mirror and Sun.
