Advice from Dennis Skinner:-“Whether you’re young or old, better off or just getting by, we can all agree that there’s a lot that needs putting right in this country. So let’s get this straight, straight away.
- Don’t listen to the siren voices of the establishment media.
- They’ll tell you that Labour is a threat to our national security.
- They’ll say that Labour is unpatriotic.
And they’ll keep banging that drum from now until June 8th.
It’s a familiar stunt. It’s one they’ve pulled every time the Labour Party’s stood for something meaningful, just as it does today.
The truth is, it was Labour that gave this country its national security in the first place. And together we built the NHS, even when they said it couldn’t be done. Free healthcare was a fantasy, they said, but now it’s plain common sense. It was Labour that outlawed race discrimination and decriminalised homosexuality. It was Labour that gave Britain a comprehensive education system and it was Labour that introduced the National Minimum Wage. Many of these rights form part of this country’s values. This is Labour’s proud legacy of success.
On the other hand, the Tories like to claim to be patriotic but there’s nothing patriotic about decimating living standards, there’s nothing patriotic about starving the real economy to feed the bankers and the bureaucrats, and there’s nothing patriotic about a country that can’t collect taxes from faceless corporations.
All this abuse while ordinary taxpayers do their bit for our nation. But you won’t hear messages like that in the establishment media.
A vote for Labour is a vote to win back the future. It’s a vote for the world we want to rebuild after Brexit. And crucially it’s a vote against the Conservatives’ plan to make Britain an offshore tax haven, a satellite state for European banks.
Remember, come June 8th, every vote will count. The power is in your hands to change the course of history. So let’s do it.
🌹Vote Labour on June 8th.🌹”
