Election 2019 Why I'm Voting Labour: Charlie McGough, bass player The Blinders

We have the opportunity on December 12 to elect a compassionate government

AS YOUNG people from a place like Doncaster, being Labour supporters has always been natural. But we are now faced with the option of electing a Labour government more ambitious than any in our life time. The policies on offer cannot fail to inspire.

We are seeing the promise to properly fund the NHS, the greatest asset this country has. It is the thing that has saved so many lives and so many of our families’ lives. We are always in its debt and should always fight for it. Labour are the only party willing to do this properly and the only party that we trust to care for it.  

It would be easy for people like us to just focus on the promise of arts funding. Such policies are so welcome and are certain to inspire future creatives and create spaces in which they can thrive. But the policies Labour are creating are ones we believe will affect the entirety of society.

For too long, private companies have profited from public amenities. The rail network has failed, power companies robbed us all and governments have supported the rich and the elite rather than aiding the lives of the less fortunate.

We live in one of the richest countries in the world but we still walk through a city full of homeless people. This is not right, it is not just and it requires focus and change.

We have the opportunity on December 12 to elect a compassionate government, to elect a man who has fought all his life for the right causes, who has been on the right side of history again and again.

There is a reason that the elitist press in this country are determined to destroy Labour, yet there is also a reason why thousands of young people are registering to vote and why thousands are turning out to knock on doors and speak to strangers about their passion for this party.

This is a manifesto that people believe in and we are fighting for it.
