Get Out and Vote Labour for a Better Britain

As I’m sure I don’t need to tell anyone, it’s the election today so get out and vote, and vote Labour! This is the opportunity we want to end a decade of Tory austerity and forty years of Thatcherism. During that period vital public services have been privatised, including parts of the NHS. The welfare state is also being destroyed and undermined. 130,000 people at least have died because of austerity. Travel by rail, and electricity and water would all be cheaper if they hadn’t been privatised, and prices needlessly inflated in order to give a dividend to shareholder and exorbitant pay and bonuses to directors. A quarter of a million people, including those in work, now have to rely on food banks to feed themselves thanks to wage freezes and the introduction of zero hours contracts. Employees are being put on ‘self-employed’ contracts so that their bosses don’t have to pay them sick and maternity pay, or give them holidays. And Tory privatisation means that hospital waiting times are getting long and conditions worse in order to prepare for the complete handover of the NHS to private healthcare companies.

We can stop this all today by voting Labour.

Do it!

    A quarter of a million using foodbanks? I thought it was more than that, a million at least.

      You may be right. That’s an old figure I remember from way back!

        I was working at the local foodbank this morning as it happens, and I’ll be back there tomorrow, it’s mega busy we were rushed off our feet. I’m feeling pretty worn out now. Loads of Christmas donations flooding in, all of which has to be sorted, checked, put into categories in date order, short-dated stuff given out asap, lots of Xmas puddings & mince pies etc. And the rest put into stock in our warehouse. It’s a big operation, giving out about 200 food parcels per week. This is the reality of Tory Britain.
