Britain has a lot to be proud of but it does not have a Government on the side of working people and their families.
People who work hard should be secure, prosperous and respected but the Conservatives are not standing up for working people.
While prices are rising in the supermarkets, at the petrol pumps and in our electricity bills the Government has chosen to put up National Insurance at exactly the wrong time. At the same time as they write off billions in fraud lost to criminals.
Everyone deserves a government that puts the rules in place to be secure, prosperous and respected, but while the Government expects the British people to work hard and do the right thing, it is not living up to its responsibilities.
It doesn’t have to be like this. People who work hard for themselves and their families should be able to afford the everyday things they enjoy: a comfortable home, a holiday, a meal out.
Labour has a plan to cut energy bills by cutting the VAT on your bills paid for by a windfall tax on energy companies.
Labour has a plan for better pay and more secure jobs.
Labour has a plan to cut crime by introducing police hubs in every neighbourhood paid for by scrapping the Government’s vanity yacht.
Labour will get Britain back on track.
A vote for Labour on 5 May is a vote for a party that is on your side.
A party that will prioritise your security, your prosperity and respect for you and your values.

The Labour Party is a democratic socialist party that “…believes that by the strength of our common endeavour we achieve more than we achieve alone, so as to create for each of us the means to realise our true potential and for all of us a community in which power, wealth and opportunity are in the hands of the many, not the few, where the rights we enjoy reflect the duties we owe, and where we live together, freely, in a spirit of solidarity, tolerance and respect.”
– Clause IV of The Labour Party Rule Book
In these times of relentless austerity and uncertainty, we stand for the basic rights and opportunities that underpin a caring society: building the homes people need, keeping communities safe, funding our schools so that every child has a fair chance in life, restoring the NHS to its place at the heart of our social contract with each other.
We are a proud internationalist political party, promoting peace and cooperation to address urgent global challenges: climate change, regional conflict, the resurgence of far-right ideology and violence, and the retreat towards nationalism.
We organise monthly all-members meetings, a book club, visiting speakers and debates, canvassing, town centre street stalls and a range of other campaigning activities.
