I want to be a fresh start for Penistone and Stocksbridge. I know our communities are crying out for real change, an MP and a government which will work for the many.
I have a track record as a local councillor of standing up for people, here in Penistone and Stocksbridge. successfully fighting Conservative cuts to NHS services and securing investment for our area.
We cannot trust Boris and the Tories with our NHS, Labour built the NHS and only Labour will look after it for good.
A Labour Government will bring back our railways into public ownership, restore much needed bus routes and ensure that transport is run for passengers not profit.
Only Labour can be trusted to invest in education and early years like we have done before – giving schools the funding they need, opening 1,000 new Sure Start Centres and providing 30 hours of childcare for every child from the age of two.
Only Labour will properly invest in our police force and keep our communities safe.
This Tory government has not looked after older people. Their free TV licences and buses face the axe, cuts to social care mean people aren’t getting the support they deserve. The sudden changes to pensions mean that 1950s WASPI women like my mum have lost years of their pension after working all their lives and planning for retirement at 60.
Labour will provide free social care – giving people the dignity they deserve in later life. We will protect free bus passes for pensioners and free TV licences, a lifeline for over 75s. And we will ensure justice for 1950s women.
