Labour is changing for the better. Nationally and locally.
Amidst the chaos of 10 Downing Street, with the public believing Boris Johnson has lied, Keir Starmer, the Labour leader is growing into the job looking like a Prime Minister. After 12 years in power, the Tories have lost their way with no clear plan for Britain as the country faces multiple and uncertain challenges, the public-facing personal financial challenges; a crisis as the costs of living rocket and rising crime rates. Our own MP has been criticised too often of just ‘cut and paste’ politics and too involved in personal politics.
A renewed Labour Party is beginning the process of policy development. The country must have a choice at the next General Election and Keir Starmer is showing the steel and determination to provide the public with a real choice.
Locally, Hyndburn Labour has seen a radical change. Out with the old and in with the new. A changing of the guard. Looking forward to the real challenges of the next decade. With hundreds of members, the local Labour party are united in moving forward, to set out a new vision, and demanding higher standards in public life.
A renewed Hyndburn Labour has sought high quality candidates, candidates that can take this Borough forward.
Dr Wajid Hussain (Oswaldtwistle) is a trauma and orthopaedic doctor, Scott Brerton (Great Harwood) works for a major local housing association, Kimberley Whitehead (Spring Hill & Fern Gore) is a community activist and works in utilities, Jodi Clements (Great Harwood) is a science technician at a local school, Samina Mahmood a supply teacher, Andy Clegg is a manager at a local builder supply firm, Glen Harrison (Oswaldtwistle) is a trade union official, whilst Jo Dexter (Oswaldtwistle) and Stewart Eaves (Oswaldtwistle) work in the care sector.
Hyndburn Labour is also bringing back the experience of Bernard Dawson (Rishton), Tim O’Kane (Clayton le Moors) alongside Joyce Plummer (Peel) to support the new candidates.
Under Keir Starmer Labour is changing.
Whilst the Tories select the same tired politicians cosying up to ex Labour councillors to gain power, Labour continues to move forward, to focus on the next decade and the big issues that matter to people locally.
Help for young people, new roads and rail infrastructure investment that encourages business and prosperity, lifetime high-quality housing and retrofitting for all, as we cut household bills and meet the new challenges, investment in green spaces, measures to tackle poverty, supporting the NHS and our communities with integrated health services.
Building a forward looking Labour Party, building back a Britain and a Hyndburn prepared for the future.
