What have the Tories done for us

Tory experiment failed

The Tory Experiment has failed

For five years the Tories have shown us their idea: If we just strip the government to its bare bones, give in to the powerful interests and give huge tax cuts to the very wealthiest, then all of Britain will benefit. From what they said recently they really think it has been a great success. But that tells you all you need to know about what they think success looks like.

Under the Tories' failing plan too many people are treading water, working harder and harder just to stay afloat and worried that the next generation are finding to get on than the last: 

Working people are an average £1600 a year worse off under the Tories

Family energy bills have been allowed to rise by over £300 since 2010

The average age of first time buyers has now reached 33

And despite promising to protect the NHS, under David Cameron it is going backwards with people struggling to see their GP's and waiting list rising. You can't trust the Tories with the NHS.

One in four patients are waiting a week or more for a GP appointment.

Waiting lists for treatment are at their highest levels for 6 years.

Thousands of frontline staff have been lost while £3bn has been wasted on a damaging reorganisation they promised would't happen.

 Britain can't afford another five years of the Tories. Their plans could mean:

Patients waiting longer for NHS treatment, finding it even harder to get a GP appointment and facing the prospect of more charging for services

Further Tax Breaks for millionaires as Cameron refuses to rule out cutting the top rate even further.

No action on the cost of living crises. This will be the first time since the 1920's that people will be left worse off at the end of a parliament than they were at the beginning. If the Tories don't understand the cost of living crises how can they be trusted to fix it.

And they've even failed on the one thing they claim to care most about: the Deficit. Cameron said he would eliminate the deficit by 2015. Well, now its 2015 and so is the deficit. It is still here for a simple reason, if you depress wages and lack any real economic plan other tax cuts for the wealthy, it doesn't just fail working people, it fails to balance the books.
