Yesterday, in a speech in Telford, Jeremy Corbyn, Leader of the Labour Party, said his government should be judged on the “real change” it delivers and “the concrete improvements it makes to the lives of millions”.

Setting out the goal of a society which doesn’t hold back the talents of its people, the Labour leader said that the next Labour government should be judged on whether it has delivered in five years:

  • ·     An end to in-work poverty
  • ·     An end to food bank use
  • ·     An end to 1.4 million older people not getting the care they need
  • ·     Over 100,000 genuinely affordable homes built per year
  • ·     An end to rough sleeping
  • ·     An end to tuition fees
  • ·     Reduced waiting times for A&E and cancer treatments
  • ·     Brexit sorted in six months
  • ·     Smaller class sizes
  • ·     A Green Industrial Revolution to create hundreds of thousands of jobs and slash carbon emissions

Jeremy went on to say that “the politics I stand for is about sharing power and wealth with people who don’t have a lot of money and don’t have friends in high places” and it is those people that he will “champion” to “bring about real change”.

We don’t have any time to waste. It’s time for real change now.
