The choice; vote for the many

This is a vitally important election. It is a choice between Labour’s better plan for Britain’s future, a plan that works for working families, rewarding the hard work they do and saving the NHS they rely on. Or you can carry on with the Tories, who can’t build a better future for working people because they stand up only for a privileged few. With the NHS going backwards and a recovery which works just for a few, working families can’t afford five more years of David Cameron.
You can’t trust Nick Clegg and the Liberal Democrats. They broke their promises and have been too weak to stand up to the Tories. UKIP can’t stand for working people: they’re more Tory than the Tories, a party made up of Tory people, promoting Tory policies, bankrolled by Tory donors.
We will secure the nation’s finances, and we are able to improve the family finances of the working people of Britain, by:
• Raising the minimum wage to more than £8 by October 2019.
• Protecting tax credits in the next parliament, to back working families.
• Introducing guaranteed wrap-around childcare through primary schools, underpinned by a new National Primary Childcare Service.
• Supporting the squeezed middle by pledging not to raise income tax, National Insurance or VAT.
• Freezing rail fares in the first year of a Labour Government while we reform the railways.
It is a clear choice: you can either have a Labour Government working for the many, or a Tory one working for the few.
