REAL CHANGE BEGINS WITH ME AND YOU - Have you had enough of this government yet? Or do you want to stick around to see how many more awful things they can do to us, or the people we know or hear about, before fighting back?
WE CANNOT DO IT WITHOUT YOUR HELP - Our Labour Candidates MUST BE ELECTED into Devon County Council in order to challenge the decisions and policies that most of us oppose – the ones that undermine and systematically seek to eradicate our NHS, public services, welfare state, workers rights, human rights and to gradually impoverish our citizens’ quality of life.
WE DON’T NEED EXPERTS – WE WANT YOU - Work will begin in earnest in the New Year. What can you help us with? Street stalls, door-to-door canvassing, phone-banking, delivering leaflets; fundraising; artwork; writing; other? Or would you like to stand as a Candidate?
COMMUNICATION – People have short memories and most are not politically aware. We need to raise awareness – to tell them what is at stake if they continue to vote automatically without giving it proper consideration.
We must tell them:
IT’S YOUR CHOICE - YOUR FUTURE - WHAT KIND OF FUTURE DO YOU WANT?
CHOICES- let's make the choices clear:
a) VOTE TORY and have a system of SURVIVAL OF THE FITTEST - with no NHS, public services or welfare state; no affordable housing, no secure jobs - all temporary, part time or with zero hours contracts, less workers rights and human rights; permanent austerity with more poverty and homelessness; inequality - with the poor paying most of the taxes; an ever increasing deficit and struggling economy; with the irresponsible offer of the EU Referendum Vote hanging over us when they had absolutely NO PLAN FOR BREXIT.
b) VOTE LABOUR - and have a system which SERVES THE BRITISH PEOPLE and will save the NHS, public services, welfare state, protect the vulnerable, reduce poverty and homelessness; provide secure jobs with a living wage; protect workers rights and human rights; provide affordable housing; operate with fairness, justice and equality in a democratic way on behalf of the majority not just the minority; and will build the economy and reduce the deficit. In the past 70 years it has been the Tories who have over spent - not Labour. And much as they like to blame us for the WORLD economic crash caused by the Bankers - they are wrong.
IT DOESNT MATTER WHO WE VOTE FOR - BOTH PARTIES ARE THE SAME - People have said and thought this for many years – and for many years there did not appear to be much difference when the two parties got into power. It's why many don't bother to vote. BUT SINCE THE 2008 economic crash - Tories and Labour could not be more different.
In my opinion, both parties are rapidly returning to their traditional roots to protect their own – the Tories policies are moving more increasingly to the right, protecting the wealthy and big corporations, attempting to take away the rights of working people and some Ministers would even like to bring back hanging. A sobering thought when they are pushing more people into poverty and homelessness and perhaps forcing them into crime to survive. It seems that the Tory `narrative` has moved to the centre - but that `in reality` their policies are moving far right.
And so, Labour is once again taking on the challenge of protecting the rights of working people and has had to move towards the left. However, it seems that the left now includes much of what was once considered the centre ground. More working people from all occupations – unskilled, skilled, professional, small businesses – are getting a bad deal under the Tories and need the Labour Party to represent their interests in Parliament. The Tories talk the talk but in reality their attention is solely focussed on big successful businesses and corporations and they are neglecting not only the low paid but our skilled, professional, small businesses which were historically higher earners too.
