Election 2019 Why I'm Voting Labour: Daniel Connolly, musician Sisteray

All the things that make this country great are currently at risk

THIS election is a choice between fair and unfair. Truth and lies. The security and prosperity of the few or the security and prosperity of the many.

Our schools, our mighty, brilliant NHS, our police force, our fire service, the entirety of our public services — all things that make this country great — are currently at risk and are being demoralised and privatised at a growing rate.

We have had enough of war after war after war. We all have friends and family who have travelled here from different countries to escape treacherous conditions or to follow their dreams and help contribute to our country.

They are currently being made to feel frightened and unwelcome. People who have lived here for decades have been refused a guarantee that our society will protect their rights to make a life for themselves here.
 
If you have seen Ken Loach’s critically acclaimed film I, Daniel Blake you will have witnessed an accurate portrayal of how working-class families have been treated in 21st-century Tory Britain, an assault spearheaded by former DWP Secretary Iain Duncan Smith, MP for Chingford and Woodford Green.
 
Having grown up in Chingford, I have seen at first hand how this man has striven to tear apart families and wreck people’s lives. We’ve had enough.

Join us at a fundraiser for the local Labour Party at Seasons Bar in Woodford Green on Wednesday December 4 and let’s work together to make a real change. Tickets: sisteray.com/live
