Households in Hinckley and Bosworth who remortgaged last year face a £20,600,000 annual mortgage bombshell amidst spiralling interest rates following Liz Truss’s disastrous mini-budget new research by the House of Commons Library, commissioned by the Liberal Democrats has revealed

Hinckley Liberal Democrat Councillor Michael Mullaney said:

“Spiralling mortgage rates have been pushing families to the brink here in Hinckley and Bosworth. 

“The aftershocks of Liz Truss’s disastrous mini budget have saddled thousands of households in our area with years of increasingly unaffordable monthly payments and the real threat of many losing their homes.

“This Conservative government has proven themselves utterly unfit to oversee our economy and it is families in our community who are paying the price for their staggering incompetence.

“The Prime Minister’s boasts about new inflation figures today will ring hollow to the thousands in Hinckley and Bosworth who have borne the brunt of the cost of living crisis and are struggling to put food on the table. The Conservative party does not deserve to be in office for a moment longer.”
