On Thursday May 7th everyone will have 3 ballot papers. That’s 3 different ways to get rid of the Tories.Only a Labour vote can do this.

*Labour are best placed to kick out the Tories in Westminster at the General Election.
*Labour are the only serious opposition party who can challenge Tory dominated Sedgemoor
*Labour representation at grassroots level on Town and Parish councils is crucial

The Lib Dem vote will plummet across the country as people punish them for breaking their promises and propping up a vicious tory government. Lib Dems have been almost completely wiped out across Sedgemoor

UKIP are more Tory than the Tories, a party made up of Tory people, promoting Tory policies, bankrolled by Tory donors.

The real fight is with the Conservatives who have long wanted to break up the Welfare state and continually undermine local democracy by running roughshod over the wishes of local people closing down popular leisure facilities with the sole solution of an unwanted superstore only to find 4 years down the line that Flagship Tesco has run aground. What a waste of time and money.

The transport system is in a mess, our heritage is being reduced to rubble by developers with inadequate legislation to stop them and shops remain empty in our High streets.

Labour has the ideas and resolve to provide solutions – promoting social enterprise , encouraging start-up businesses, innovation and technology centres.

With our population increasing, especially with Hinkley C. we need more leisure facilities for these people. A big house building programme means that we need the facilities and amenities to support it.

The Austerity programme of the Coalition is producing a financial recovery for the few and not the many and we need to get it working for the many The Labour Party works for everybody, people will be better off in secure jobs, we’ll have an NHS we can count on and only then can our country be a fairer place where we can give young people some hope about their future.
