This general election is about change

I grew up working class. I’ve been fighting all my life. I will fight for working people.

And I will fight to restore hope and pride in our great country.

Britain’s got the talent, the entrepreneurs, the world-beating scientists and, the dedicated volunteers serving their communities. We’ve got millions of hard-working British citizens who fight against the odds each day.

But the one thing we don’t have is a government that rolls up its sleeves and gets to work alongside people to solve the country’s problems.

Over 14 years, the Tories have knocked the confidence of the country, and tried to stop people believing that change is possible. They have presided over chaos and decline.

Mortgages sky-rocketed as a result of the disastrous mini-budget. The price of a typical supermarket shop has gone up by nearly £1,000 a year. Taxes are at a 70-year high. We simply can’t afford five more years of the Tories.

Britain can be better than this. Enough is enough, it’s time for change. That is what this election is about.

I’ve changed the Labour Party. We are back in service of working people.

Front and centre of everything we do will be economic stability with tough spending rules, so we can grow our economy and keep taxes, inflation and mortgages as low as possible.

Every one of our commitments are fully costed and fully funded. The government I lead will never play fast and loose with public finances.

There’s no quick fix to the mess the Tories have made of this country – but we have a plan to take us forward.

To achieve this, I have set out five long term missions to end sticking plaster politics – a long term plan to change this country.

How people voted in recent elections doesn’t matter to me. What matters is that we heal the wounds of the last few years and come together for the sake of our country. 

On 4 July the future of the country is in your hands. 

Together, we can end the chaos. We can turn the page. We can start to rebuild Britain. And change our country.

Leader of the Labour Party

We need your help to get Britain's future back.
