Welcome to Spelthorne Labour Party
Donald Trump has persuaded Liam Fox, Tory International Trade Secretary to have sub-standard food dumped on this country.
Fox boasts that the humiliating agreement will cut the cost of our food imports of chicken, beef and GM products ‘significantly.’ But the immediate result will be the ruination of our standards-observing farmers by undercutting them.
The EU warns the effects on public health would be devastating.
The ‘production’ methods which Trump offers are cruel in the extreem.
Chickens are pumped full of hormones, forced fed in endless dark overcrowding. After painful slaughter, their corpses are soaked in chlorine – a banned treatment in the E.U.
We know all about cattle mistreatment with hormone pumped battery beef quick profit all-important. Cattle should not be fed other mammals entrails.
‘Mad cow disease’ jumps species. It will return.
As for G.M. crops – the health jury is still in session.
If this ‘Eat dirt cheap’ policy is to follow Brexit, our N.H.S. burden will become intolerable.
Thames Water’s fine is a tap on a leaky wrist
As the Labour cavalry charge over the hill, to Britain’s rescue Jeremy Corbyn’s reformers will sort out the privatisation of public services once and for all.
Last May, Thames Water, amid fears of drought, missed its water leakage target by 47 million litres a day. That is the daily volume of 18 Olympic swimming pools. OFWAT fined the miscreants £8.5 million.
The tap on a leaky wrist which is the maximum allowed. Before that — look away if eating — Thames Water pumped 1.4 billion litres of raw sewage into the river. The offence was hit with a record fine of £20.3 million.
Who owns this necessity of life? As the name implies, you would think,
we Brits/ Londoners.
Wrong the Tories have sold it to a mysterious foreign consortia of sovereign wealth funds involving Abu Dhabi, China, Australia, Canada, and Kuwait.
Are these the sort of trade deals we can expect when leaving the EU?
We “customers” might be disgruntled, but the shareholders will not. One billion pounds in dividends in the decade buys their complicity.
But surely Thames Water have sacked their £700.000 per year boss? Wrong again. No fine for him, instead, a bonus of £54.000.
Roll on a Labour government.
Excerpts from Labour’s fully costed manifesto
If you want free university education, vote Labour.
University tuition is free in many northern European countries,
and under a Labour government it will be free here too.
If you want to keep your home in old age, vote Labour.
In their first term, Labour will lay the foundations of a National Care Service for England.
If you want to see our utilities owned by the British Nation, instead of foreign investors, Vote Labour.
Across the world, countries are taking public utilities back into public ownership. Labour will learn from these experiences and bring key utilities back into public ownership to deliver lower prices, more accountability and a more sustainable economy. We will:
· Bring private rail companies back into public ownership as their franchises expire.
· Regain control of energy supply networks through the alteration of operator license conditions, and transition to a publicly owned, de-centralised energy system.
· Replace our dysfunctional water system with a network of regional publicly-owned water companies.
Reverse the privatization of Royal Mail at the earliest opportunity.
Public ownership will benefit consumers, ensuring that their interests are put first and that there is democratic accountability for the service.
If you want a good Brexit deal, Vote Labour.
labour accepts the referendum result and a Labour government will put the national interest first. We will prioritize jobs and living standards, build a close new relationship with the EU, protect workers’ rights and environmental standards, provide certainty to EU nationals and give a meaningful role to Parliament throughout negotiations.
Brexit under Labour would result in a fair deal for the many, and good relations with our EU neighbors.
Brexit under the Conservatives would result in hardship for many, dodgy trade deals with dubious nations and isolation from our former EU partners.
Spelthorne Labour Party would prefer to become part of Greater London.
Although Spelthorne Labour Party would support the idea being put out, of breaking up of Surrey into unitary authorities — after all nothing could be worse than what we already have!
In a recent survey carried out among Spelthorne’s Labour Party members, the findings came out totally in favour of Spelthorne becoming part of Greater London and a motion was passed to that effect.
This policy must be thoroughly explored after the elections.
Some of the advantages of being part of
· We would automatically become part of zone 6, this would make rail fares cheaper for commuters going into London.
· All over 60s would get a freedom pass which would give them free rail travel into London.
· More money spent on primary and secondary school education.
· Being part of London instead of Surrey’s back yard would give us more self pride and status.
· The cheaper fares would also encourage multinational companies to relocate here, bringing extra wealth and prosperity to our Thames side borough with its nearness to Heathrow Airport good links to the M1, M3, M4, M25, with the added bonus of a London address.
· Lower council tax, e.g. Spelthorne band D £1,748.56, Hillingdon band D
As a point of interest neighbouring Hillingdon has frozen council tax for all residence for the ninth successive year. Also free burglar alarms, swimming and allotments for the over- 65s.
Pre 1965 Spelthorne was considered as part of Greater London. GLC (Greater London Council), low deposit, fixed rate, low interest mortgages were given out by the then Labour government to help young people buy their first homes, these mortgages were also available to people living in Spelthorne.
Metropolitan Police living here got London weighting.
We also have our Greater London London TW post code.
