Ex-UK prime minister warns of ‘winter of poverty’

Former British Prime Minister Gordon Brown has urged Boris Johnson and prime ministerial candidates to agree to an emergency budget or Britons face a “winter of poverty”.

According to the politician, millions of children and pensioners from Britain may face difficulties.

According to the ex-premier, the “financial time bomb” could allegedly explode in October against the backdrop of rising fuel prices.

According to a York University study, by January, more than 4 million households (about 11.6 million people) will spend more than a quarter of their net income on fuel.
