Launching Southend Labour’s local manifesto for 2014

Labour manifesto

With the local elections bearing down fast upon is, tomorrow the Labour Party in Southend-on-Sea will be launching our manifesto, containing our plans for the future prosperity of the town. I have seen the finished manifesto, and I am impressed (well, I would say that, wouldn’t I?) It consists of a collection of strong, well-founded ideas to bring Southend out of its Conservative-presided stagnation, and make it into the cohesive, prosperous community that we all want to see.

I was shocked to learn that Labour are the only party in Southend who actually have a unified manifesto. Not the Independent Party Group, nor the Lib Dems, nor UKIP, nor even the ruling Conservatives. It can surprise no one that Southend has not reached its potential, when all the other parties have is a patchwork of self-serving ideas to offer the electorate.

So come along tomorrow, and see what Labour’s plans are for Southend. And remember; Labour are the only party locally who have a plan for the future.
