Forward, Together

Today the Conservative Party launched a manifesto for Britain’s future. It is a manifesto to see us through Brexit and beyond – and a plan for a stronger, fairer, more prosperous Britain.

The next five years are the most challenging that Britain has faced in your lifetime. Brexit will define us: our place in the world, our economic security and our future prosperity.

So now more than ever, Britain needs a strong and stable government to get the best Brexit deal for our country and its people. Now more than ever, Britain needs strong and stable leadership to make the most of the opportunities Brexit brings for hardworking families. And now more than ever, Britain needs a clear plan.

The manifesto – called Forward, Together – will meet the great challenges of our time, beyond Brexit.

You can read it here.

With this plan and with a strong hand through Brexit, we will build a stronger, fairer, more prosperous Britain, that works for everyone:

A higher National Living Wage and proper rights and protections at work
Capping rip-off energy bills and keeping taxes low
A good school place for every child, with more money for schools every year
The chance to own a home, with more affordable housing
The first ever proper plan to pay for and provide social care
So please – join us on this journey. Come with us as Theresa may leads Britain.

Strengthen her hand as she fights for Britain. Stand with us as she delivers for Britain.

And let us all go forward together.

 

FARRON TO OPEN DOOR TO 50,000 SYRIANS

LibDem Leader Tim Farron has pledged that he would open the door to an additional 50,000 Syrian refugees, estimated to cost around £4.3 billion.

Whilst there is no doubt that many Christians in the region who have been massively persecuted by jihadists do deserve our help, the sheer volume is totally unrealistic.

Let’s not forget, the LibDems own research has shown that 35,000 people in Britain have been waiting more than 10 years for social housing, with 100,000 waiting 5 years or more.

Would Farron and the LibDems put Syrians ahead of those 100,000?

Yet again it seems that rather than charity starting at home, virtue-signalling by the establishment takes priority. Instead of mass migration, and a mass influx of Syrian refugees, isn’t it about time this country got its own people housed first?
