BUILDING A BETTER, FAIRER BRITAIN FOR EVERYONE

The Conservatives are busy building a country that works for everyone: A Britain fit for the future

  • Theresa May and the Conservatives want every child to have the best start in life, and every generation to do better than the last.
  • That’s why we are working hard to build a stronger, fairer economy and a more caring society – a country where everyone’s hard work is recognised and rewarded, and people can lead fulfilling, happy lives. 
  • This way we can build a country that works for everyone, one which is ready to meet the challenges of the future head on, with hope and optimism that our best days lie ahead of us. 
  • In doing all of this we will strengthen our precious Union and make sure we are a truly Global Britain, providing leadership in the World.

 

We are:

  • Making the economy work for everyone by:
    • helping people with the cost of living;
    • investing in public services like the NHS, while getting debt falling; and
    • backing businesses to create good jobs, while ensuring they play by the rules.

 

  • Building the homes people need, so everyone can afford a safe, decent place to live, and help as many people as possible to get on the housing ladder.
  • Improving schools, colleges and universities so everyone can have the best start in life, and go as far as their talents and hard work can take them.
  • Protecting our natural environment so we leave a cleaner, greener Britain for our children, with stronger protections for animal welfare and tough action on plastic waste.
  • Keeping our families, communities and country safe by making sure the police, armed forces and intelligence agencies have the powers and the money they need.
  • Getting the best Brexit deal for you, your family and the whole country, delivering on the referendum vote to get control of our money, borders and laws, while building a strong new relationship with Europe.
  • Tackling burning injustices, wherever they exist in our society, so people can achieve their true potential, whatever their background and circumstances.

  

We will all pay the price for Labour

For all the promises Labour make, they won’t deliver on them.  They don’t know how to handle the economy and we know what that means from last time – more debt, higher taxes and fewer jobs.  We will all pay the price for that.

Jeremy Corbyn and his top team are unqualified and not up to the job.  Time and time again, he breaks his promises – whether it is his pledge on student debt, renewing our Trident defence system, or standing up to people in his party who do and say things that don’t belong in our public life. 

On Brexit, one of the biggest issues facing our country, Labour are working to frustrate it, rather than make it a success, and they have no interest in controlling our borders.
