London attack: the heroes who rushed to help

In the wake of the London attack many people have been quick to praise the bravery of the city’s “heroes” – the emergency services and members of the public who rushed to help those in need. MORE

London Attack

Under the Tories: No pay rise for 15 years.

Workers in Britain are on course to suffer an unprecedented 15 years of lost earnings growth and have been warned to prepare for a third successive parliament of austerity by a leading thinktank. MORE

Tories out of touch

Theresa May’s first Budget was utterly complacent about the state of our economy ahead of Brexit. It was complacent about the crisis across our public services and entirely out of touch with the reality of life for many millions of people in this country.

While doing nothing to solve the crisis in the NHS, in social care or in schools — the Tories have continued with massive tax giveaways for those at the top.

After the Tories delivered their complacent budget, I told them that it lacked ambition and fairness for our country:

Watch and share: this budget is unfair
Today, Philip Hammond and Theresa May clobbered self-employed workers on low and middle incomes for £2 billion, while doing nothing to clamp down on insecure employment and low pay.

Labour is clear, we would introduce a real living wage of £10 per hour and give all workers equal rights from day one to tackle low pay and job insecurity.

It doesn’t have to be this way. Together, we can deliver a Labour government with the ambition to build a fairer Britain.

P.S. Don’t just get angry at this shocking Tory budget, get active and help us build a fairer Britain this weekend:
