Watch: The Tories don’t see the cost of chaos to working people. But Britain can turn the corner

After 14 years of the Tories, Britain isn’t working.

Mortgages are sky-high. The tax burden is at its highest level for 70 years. NHS waiting lists are leaving people waiting months for vital treatment. And a failure to build homes is leaving families locked out of the housing ladder.

We’ve been let down by a Tory government putting the party before country.

While working people pay the price for this endless chaos, what are Rishi Sunak and his MPs doing? Fighting among themselves, distracted, and not doing their jobs.

No one believes that five more years of a Tory Government will mean anything but more of the same. Because Rishi Sunak is too weak to put the needs of the country first, he doesn’t see the cost of Tory chaos to working people. 

But none of this is inevitable. Britain will turn the corner. Keir Starmer will put Britain first.

Labour will end the chaos by launching five national missions to get Britain’s future back.

Labour's missions:

Following strict rules that strengthen public finances and by reforming planning laws, so we build more houses, giga factories, windfarms, roads, labs and ports, developing the skills needed to do so.

A Labour Government will:

  • Take tough decisions to restore economic stability and secure our economy.
  • Reduce energy bills and invest in the jobs and industries of the future via our Green Prosperity Plan and Great British Energy, a new publicly owned clean generation company.
  • Build more homes and help first time buyers with ‘first dibs’ on new homes in their area.

Switching on Great British Energy, a new publicly owned, clean energy company, that ensures jobs are created here in Britain and that we aren’t dependent on tyrants like Putin.

A Labour Government will:

  • Create Great British Energy, a new publicly-owned clean power generation company to cut your energy bills and deliver good jobs.
  • Cut your energy bill for good – making families up to £1,400 better off a year.
  • Create 500,000 new, skilled jobs in the industries of the future, rebuilding the strength of our industrial heartlands.
  • Deliver energy security so we’re not dependent on dictators like Putin.

Paying doctors and nurses overtime to work evenings and weekends to cut the backlog – paid for by closing the loopholes in Rishi Sunak’s non-dom plan and cracking down on tax dodgers.

A Labour government will:

  • Cut waiting times by giving the NHS the staff and technology it needs.
  • End the 8am scramble for GP appointments and giving patients a choice of appointments in person or on the phone.
  • Improve cancer survival rates and reduce deaths from heart disease and suicide.
  • More care in the community so patients aren’t stuck in hospital.

Guaranteeing town centre police patrols in every community to tackle gangs, drug dealers and fly tippers – paid for by cutting outside contractors and waste.

A Labour government will:

  • Put 13,000 more neighbourhood police and PCSOs on our streets.
  • Halve violence against women and girls, and tougher sentences for rapists.
  • Introduce new ‘Respect Orders’, a tough new order with criminal sanctions for antisocial behaviour.

Introducing free school breakfast clubs and more high quality teaching with more specialist maths and science teachers – paid for by removing tax breaks for private schools, closing the loopholes in Rishi Sunak’s non-dom plan and cracking down on tax dodgers.

A Labour government will:

  • Create a modern childcare system with breakfast clubs in every primary school to give children the best start.
  • Make sure there’s a world class teacher in every classroom, recruiting 6,500 new staff, paid for by ending tax breaks for private schools.
  • Introduce a broader curriculum, developing creativity, digital and speaking skills that ensure young people leave school ready for work and ready for life.
  • Expand apprenticeships and skills training to spread opportunity for all.

This isn’t a quick fix. It’s about a decade of national renewal. We’ve turned our country around before, and we will do it again. 

Now it’s time for change to bring Britain’s future back.
