I would like to take this opportunity to thank all my friends and supporters who have worked so hard on my campaign this year.
2015 will be a very important year. The General Election, which will be held on 7th May gives the people of Britain the chance to choose between a Conservative Government that is committed to looking after the interests of the rich and privileged and a Labour Government that is dedicated to delivering fairness for all. The next Labour Government will crucially:
1. Make Work Pay
2. Save the NHS
3. Protect Workers Rights
4. Tackle youth unemployment by guaranteeing a job or training for every young person
5. Freeze Energy Bills
Since 2010 so many people in Burnley and Padiham have suffered at the hands of the Coalition. Shamefully the Liberal Democrats have backed the Conservatives all the way and I have lost count of the people locally who have said to me: Voted Lib Dem. Never Again.
I would like to wish you all Happy Christmas and a peaceful New Year. I look forward to working with you all to make next year a better year for all.
