Southampton Labour kicked off the General Election campaign this weekend. 

And as you can see our candidates and activists were out in full force, talking to voters about the choice they have to make on May 7th. 

We were out all weekend talking to Sotonians about our better plan for a better future. We pledge:

1. A strong economic foundation:

Balance the books and cut the deficit every year while securing the future of the NHS. None of our manifesto commitments require additional borrowing.

2. Higher living standards for working families:

Freeze energy bills until 2017 and give the regulator the power to cut bills this winter, ban exploitative zero-hours contracts, raise the minimum wage to £8 and provide 25 hours free childcare a week.

3. An NHS with the time to care:

20,000 more nurses and 8,000 more GPs. We will join up services from home to hospital, guaranteeing GP appointments within 48 hours and cancer tests within one week.

4. Controls on immigration:

People who come here won’t be able to claim benefits for at least two years and we will introduce fair rules making it illegal for employers to undercut wages by exploiting workers.

5. A country where the next generation can do better than the last:

Tuition fees reduced to £6,000, an apprenticeship for every school leaver who gets the basic grades, and smaller class sizes for 5, 6 & 7 year-olds.

 

You can help us deliver out pledges in the next 5 weeks by joining our team.

There are only 100 days until the General Election on May 7th, are you registered to vote? 

The changes that David Cameron and Nick Clegg have made to voting laws mean millions of people will have dropped off the register. Make sure you are not one of them. You can now register to vote online, visit: 

www.gov.uk/register-to-vote  

This election will be one of the closest in a generation, and it means that your vote really does count. 

Think about how you would feel waking up to five more years of a Tory government, knowing that you hadn't stood up to be counted.  

Five more years of a declining NHS, Five more years of the cruel Bedroom Tax, five more years of an economy that works only for a privileged few.

With only 6 months to go until the General Election supporters across the city joined the fight to keep Southampton Labour come May 2015

We spoke to hundreds of voters in Southampton about everything from anti-social behaviour to their concerns over the future of our NHS. 

The biggest concern of many residents we spoke to was the future of the NHS under the Conservatives. The choice between a Labour and a Tory government is clear. Under the Tories we have lost thousands of frontline staff and bits of our NHS have been sold off to the highest bidder. 

It was great to see so many supporters out this weekend and we'll be out every week from now until election day. If you want to join a team that ensures we get a Labour majority in 2015 join us for an hour or two on one of our sessions  

We look forward to seeing you.
