South Lakes Labour welcomes the announcement of the General Election on Thursday 12th December and is looking forward to a change of government that will put an end to austerity and transform our economy so that it works for everyone across our country. Labour’s election manifesto policies will tackle the problems in society that this Conservative, and the previous Conservative / Liberal Democrat coalition, governments have created.
A Labour government will provide much-needed social housing, public transport that is affordable and efficient, and will bring the railways back into public ownership. It will provide proper funding for the NHS, education, adult social care, and the police and fire services. It will also create a society where there is no longer a need for foodbanks or rough sleeping, and urgently address the climate change crisis.
South Lakes Labour Chair, Paul Braithwaite said, “This General Election is a real opportunity to change our country for the better, and we will be fighting to return a Labour government that will rebuild Britain for all its citizens”.
