A week is a long time and other cliches
They say that a week is a long time in politics. The national news this week was full of the Conservative’s Autumn Budget statement. This was a predictably cliched, shallow pre-election affair, heralding so-called tax cuts, while freezing personal allowances and promising to usher in a new era of bitter austerity. Cold charity indeed for the millions of families grappling with a cost of living crisis, food inflation running at 10% and an under-funded health service. Let’s not forget that this Conservative government has been fiscally reckless to a breath-taking degree and raised taxes again and again. Our very own Conservative MP Guy Opperman has voted for a whopping 25 tax rises since 2019.
Labour knows that the country needs change. Labour knows that we need to get Britain’s future back and create hope, encourage aspiration and provide opportunities for all. Our Parliamentary Candidate Joe Morris is working for this goal and is already fighting to improve the lives of everyone who lives in the Constituency.
Building Bridges in the Tyne Valley
Joe Morris and the Labour party know that voters are tired and disillusioned with 13 disastrous years of Conservative Government and that is why Joe is ahead in the polls in our Constituency. For Labour to win in Hexham we need to build bridges to all of the electorate and that is exactly what we have been doing. Joe and CLP members have been tirelessly pounding the streets, knocking on doors, delivering leaflets and speaking to electors right across the constituency. This weekend we spoke to hundreds of people in Haydon Bridge and Hexham and heard for ourselves the unhappiness with the Conservatives. The only party in our constituency with a chance of making history and electing someone other than Guy Opperman is Labour.
When the time comes make sure you Vote for Joe Morris and Labour. Or suffer another five years of disappointment.
