The Labour party locally and nationally think that they can win the economic argument by just wailing about cuts on behalf of their public sector union paymasters. Bare in mind that I, Allan Witherick and your local councillor, was one of those who has suffered personally, I was a member of UNISON and worked in Local Government, but in June I was made redundant.
That doesn’t make it any less right.
But what the Labour party have failed to do is give any credible alternatives for what they would do about Britain’s economic crisis.
What they also like to ignore is some of the changes that are being made towards making this country fairer. Here is a list of cuts WE have made which for some reason they aren’t talking about because they are mostly happening through Lib Dem action and pressure.
Remember, Labour didn’t deliver these changes in their 13 years of government and voted AGAINST them in this government. Lib Dems in parliament are pushing a fairness agenda and showing that Labour can never again be trusted with the economy. If you have Labour Councils you can probably see the same incompetence and wrong choices in your area too. It’s time to go out and tell the public.
By the way, just for good measure we also CUT Tory plans to increase the Inheritance
Tax threshold from £350,000 to £1,000,000!
Shame Labour don’t talk about the cuts which actually help people.
