I do not believe you want to live in a country where people are treated like they have been for the last 9 years. I definitely don’t

9 years of Austerity implemented by the Conservatives – they want us to give them more time to fix it? How long do they need?

Child poverty up 73% in the UK under 9 years of Tory government.

Jeremy Corbyn never supported the IRA, but people don’t mind the fact that the Tories are selling weapons to Saudi Arabia, who are massacring millions of people in Yemen, fund weapons to ISIS and have one of the worst human rights records on this planet.

Remember we only have the press’ word that Corbyn is racist. Boris Johnson literally called Muslim women ‘letterboxes’.

Not forgetting Tory Councillor Maria Garland was in the IRA.

Conservative council allowed illegal padding on Grenfell Tower which resulted in the fire, Conservative government have blamed the fire fighters who put their lives at risk. In February 2013 residents warned fire safety equipment, including fire extinguishers, had not been tested for 12 months. KCTMO said it was aware that concerns had been raised historically by residents and they would form part of its investigations. The Conservative council insisted the block had been regularly inspected.

In 2010 we had 1,768 people sleeping rough in England now 9 years later we have 4,677.

Between 2010 and 2015, mental health trusts suffered real term cuts of 8.25%, losing the equivalent of £598 million

There are now about 2,000 food banks across the UK, with the Trussell Trust accounting for about 1,200 of them. The number of supplies being distributed has risen by 73% over the past five years.

Universal Credit – More than 17,000 people have died while waiting to hear whether their claim for disability benefit had been successful.

Cut 21,000 police officers.

In 2020 were expecting a shortfall of 42,000 nurses.

Any post-Brexit trade deal with the United States will open the door to big American health corporations. It has also been picked up that the US authorities will demand that the NHS pays more for drugs supplied by American companies. Fuelling this row was a documentary by Channel 4 Dispatches which asserted that the price the NHS pays for US medicines could rise steeply in any future trade deal with the United States. The programme reported that “drug pricing” had been discussed in six initial meetings between trade officials from the UK and the US and that there had been “secret meetings” between the pharmaceutical companies and British civil servants.

I do not believe you want to live in a country where people are treated like they have been for the last 9 years. I definitely don’t.

So if you know someone who is voting Conservative, show them these facts. Ask them what country they want to live in.

Don’t be one of those who’s argument for not voting labour is based on a headline you read on Corbyn.

End Tory rule.
End Austerity.
