Vote for investment and Vote Labour says GMB union


10 December 2019

On 12 December you will decide the future of our country for decades to come. Labour will build a fairer Britain that cares for the many, not the few.

10 reasons why a vote for Labour will mean a vote for both your head and your heart

Vote with your head

1. Because Labour will put money back in your pocket. With a £10-an-hour minimum wage, more welfare support for working families and an instant cap on energy bills

2. Because Labour will invest in your kids’ future. With 30 hours of free childcare for all; £5billion extra for our cash-strapped schools and the end of university tuition fees

3. Because Labour will end the NHS crisis. With an immediate halt to hospital and A&E closures; an extra £6billion-a-year for more doctors, nurses and bed places; and a huge investment in mental health services

4. Because Labour will care for you and your loved ones in old age. With a new National Care Service for those needing social care; and protections of the ‘triple-lock’ on pensions and the winter fuel allowance for every pensioner

5. Because Labour will build the homes we need. With a massive house-building programme to help first-time buyers; a pledge to build 100,000 new council homes every year; and new rent controls to help those struggling to get by.

Vote with your heart

6. Because society is too unequal and we must make Britain fairer. Only Labour will cap fatcat pay, hike taxes for the biggest earners and boost the incomes of those on welfare and the minimum wage

7. Because a vote for Labour is a vote to help the most vulnerable in our country. Only Labour will reverse brutal welfare policies such as the Bedroom Tax, benefit sanctions and fit-to-work tests

8. Because workers and bill-payers need protection from big business. Only Labour will offer a revolution in workers’ rights while bringing the big utility firms back into the public sector

9. Because our brave and tireless public servants deserve a pay rise. Only Labour will lift the cruel cap on public sector pay that has seen the wages of police officers, soldiers, nurses and teachers fall further behind each year

10. Because we owe it to the working men and women who battled for generations to win us the rights we enjoy today. Only Labour has the century-old tradition of fighting for the working class.
