Labour will launch their North West election campaign today as figures shows hardworking people across the region are suffering under David Cameron’s cost of living crisis.
The Tories and Liberal Democrats claim hardworking families in Tameside and Stockport are better off. The truth is they are £1,600 a year worse off under David Cameron.
Andrew Gwynne MP said:
“This Tory-led Government is claiming that people are better off. But David Cameron, George
Osborne and Nick Clegg simply don’t understand the cost of living crisis facing hardworking
families in Britain.
“The truth is, hardworking people in Tameside and Stockport are £1,600 a year worse off under David Cameron. Britain is facing a cost of living crisis in rising prices, stagnant wages, long hours, falling living standards, and declining opportunities for their kids.
“People in communities across the North West will be better off with a Labour council, prioritising the NHS, housing and childcare, not worse off with the Lib Dems and Tories.
“People in our region know the Lib Dems and Tories are making the cost of living crisis worse not better. In local councils, in Westminster, in Europe, the Tories repeatedly put a privileged few before hardworking families. Hardworking people, the next generation, our schools and hospitals – all are worse off under this Tory-led government.
“The Tories, supported by their Liberal Democrat allies in government, can’t solve the cost of living crisis because they put the privileged few before working people. The Liberal Democrats can’t be the solution because they are part of the problem. And UKIP are just not capable of holding the Tories and Liberal Democrats to account and getting fairness for people here.
“These elections are your chance to tell this Tory-led government to put hardworking people put first and take real action to tackle the cost of living crisis.
“Only by voting Labour on 22nd May can you send a message to this Tory-led government.”
