Labour has failed! They have failed to improve or make more efficient; our schools, our National Health Service, our police force, the civil service, the welfare state or our prisons. They have failed our heroic troops and service personal that this government sent to foreign fields under a false mandate. Labour has failed Britain’s nurses, her doctors, her policemen and women, her students, her businessmen, her workers, and her soldiers. They have failed Britain’s teachers, wardens, professors and researchers. They have failed our builders, our plumbers, our electricians and our architects.
Finally, they have failed Britain’s voters. They promised positive change in 1997, 2001 and 2005, and they have not provided. They promised better services and we have not received them. They promised a safer Britain, and instead the Home Secretary now has to walk with protection. This is failure on a grand and appalling scale.
This failure has not only cost us socially…
The Economy: We know the situation is dire. We have seen and heard about the economy’s morose condition. In fact, almost every day, we receive yet more bad news about our national debt, the rising level of unemployment and rising prices.
If we are to believe Gordon Brown, Labour is not to blame. If we are to listen to Brown, we might assume that he has “saved the world.” If we are to believe Alistair Darling; the whole world is suffering, and in fact, Britain was and is one of the best prepared countries to ride out this depression. They are wrong.
Britain is in trouble and Labour under Gordon Brown is worsening not helping the situation. As George Osborne said in his conference speech, in Britain today:
- One in five young people cannot find work
- One pound in every four the state spends goes straight on the national debt
- More of our taxes go on paying the interest on that debt than on educating our children or defending our country.
Our level of national debt is enormous! As of earlier this year, our dept level rests at a figure of around £800.8 billion! UK national dept is now expected to hit 75% of British GDP by 2013! This is awful!
It now costs the UK economy £75 billion to deal with the extra red tape and bureaucracy that this government has created. That is 1/15 of the money (£5 billion) that Brown lost us through his thoughtless sale of our gold reserves. That is many times more than the quickly rising unemployment levels that this country is facing due to Labour’s inadequacies (2.4 million) and this is much MUCH more than the government spends on our armed services. (£32 billion)
Brown said the times of boom and bust were over and yet now we are in one of the deepest ‘busts’ in our history. Where have the ideals of Prime Ministerial responsibility gone? You have failed us Labour and Gordon Brown. Call the election that you dithered on two years ago, and allow the British people to show you how they feel about Labour’s failure!
