Hello, I'm Beth!
I am proud to be Labour's Candidate for Corby and East Northamptonshire, fighting for the community I call home.
This election is more than brexit
Posted on 9th Dec 2019 in Campaigning
The Tories want this election to be all about Brexit - that is because their record in government is abysmal - they're bailing on tv debates because they can't defend their record in government 🤦🏻♀️
❌ record levels of homelessness
❌ worst waiting times at A&E since records began
❌ scrapped the nursing bursary leading to a slump in trainees
❌ police cut by 21,000 and closed our police station
❌ closed 1000 Sure Start centres and cut school meals for 1 million children growing up in poverty
❌ 4 million people in 'in-work' poverty
They've done all of this while increasing the national debt!
And they haven't got a plan for the future! 'Get Brexit Done' is just a slogan, much like Theresa May's 'strong and stable' in 2017.
Yes, Brexit is important but this election is about so much more than that - it is about the next five years and what sort of country you want to live in.
Can our NHS 🏥 survive another five years of Tory rule? Don't our children and teachers 🧑🏫 deserve better than the harsh cuts they've had? Shouldn't the very, very richest pay a little bit more and the biggest businesses pay their fair share of tax?
I'm all for aspiration and encouraging people to get on but we also need a properly funded health service and decent schools.
Please back me ✅ on Thursday for an MP on your side, fighting for our whole community.
