Why vote Labour on May 5th?
Have you noticed the effects of George Osborne’s cuts on local policing, on families, those receiving care and people with disabilities? Tory budgets have consistently hit ordinary families and the most vulnerable hardest. The richest few have benefited most under this government, while at the same time, debt has rocketed in the past six years.
North East Lincolnshire’s Labour council will soon have had a 40% cut in support from Whitehall since 2010; that’s around £1500 per household. By 2020 the council will have to rely almost entirely on council tax and business rates to provide your familiar and essential services.
The council always tries to make the best of the crumbs that fall from the Tory table. It works successfully in partnership on health and social care, and has negotiated a devolution deal for Greater Lincolnshire for you to consider, with new money attached.
Your Labour Council always applies for whatever capital grants are available. It is building and attracting business and developing roads and our town centres, in spite of opposition from the other parties. It is focusing on skills for work, while the Tory government wants to take away all council influence on Education and has abolished the role of parent governor.
Please vote for your Labour candidate on May 5th. Make it a popular vote against a Tory chancellor who has had his chance, promises so much but does not deliver for NE Lincs.
