Because I felt like tarnishing my soul and hurting my eyes, I had a look at the Guildford Labour Party's website recently. Here's what I found:
Let's have a look at that in detail shall we?
Labour in government has already done much to help older citizens. The next step is to link the annual state pension increases with the increase in earnings. But with huge Tory - LibDem cuts promised, will it have to wait for the next Labour government for the link to be restored?
The next step is to link the annual state pension increases with the increase in earnings. Well, that's funny, because linking annual state pension increases with earnings was a Lib Dem manifesto promise. And, would you believe it, the earnings link with pensions is to be restored from April this year.
So, far from having to wait for the next Labour government the earnings link is coming back right now. And it's disgusting for Labour to harp on about it given that they had the option to do it for 13 years and CHOSE NOT TO.
As a result, I'm rather surprised by the lies and scaremongering that the Guildford Labour Party are up to. They know full well that the earnings link has been restored in the first year of this government and is a prime example of Liberal Democrat policy in action and changing Britain for the better. Either that, or they somehow managed to miss the budget completely.
Incidentally, they also make the statement that:
Tories & Lib Dems will repeal the hunting act
We know from the published details of the Tory-LibDem coalition that they intend to introduce a "great repeal bill" in which the Hunting Act and several other important measures will be removed from the statute books.(No sign here of the Liberal Democrats being a moderating influence over the Tories!)
Really. I might be wrong, but I wasn't aware that repealing the hunting ban was high on the governments list of priorities.
