People in Wyre Forest have an important choice to make on 22 May: vote for the Tories and their Lib Dem allies who only stand up for a privileged few, or vote for a Labour party that puts hardworking families first.
This Tory-led Government claims that people are better off. But that’s totally out of touch with local people on middle and lower incomes who are still not feeling any economic recovery at all.
David Cameron, George Osborne and Nick Clegg simply don’t understand what hard working families in Wyre Forest are going through at the moment. That’s why David Cameron has allowed energy companies to put prices up yet again this year when people are already struggling to pay their bills.
The truth is Britain is facing a cost of living crisis and hard working people are £1,600 a year worse off. Under David Cameron we’ve seen rising prices, stagnant wages, long hours, falling living standards, and declining opportunities for the next generation. That is a shocking legacy of his time in power. Dr Matt Lamb, Labour Prospective Parliamentary Candidate for Wyre Forest, said:
“The Tories can’t solve the cost of living crisis because they put the privileged few before working people. The Liberal Democrats can’t be the solution because they are part of the problem. Only Labour can make Britain better off.
The elections on 22 May are your chance to tell this Tory-led government to put hardworking people first and make the big changes we need to tackle the cost of living crisis.
Only Labour is prepared to make these big changes because we understand that Britain is stronger and more successful when everyone has a chance to play their part. So Labour will get young people back to work through our Compulsory Jobs Guarantee, back small firms by cutting business rates and balance the books in a fairer way by reversing David Cameron’s huge tax cut for the richest one per cent.
We’ll also freeze energy bills, fight for our NHS, expand free childcare for working parents and help 24 million workers with a lower starting rate of income tax. Only by voting Labour on 22 May can you send a message to the Tories and Lib Dems that hard working people in our area are ready and waiting for the big changes we need to deal with the cost of living crisis.”
Wyre Forest District Council Elections will be held this year on Thursday 22nd May 2014 (moved from the first Thursday of the month to coincide with the European elections) You can view our Labour Candidates for the Wyre Forest District Council Elections here
