JEREMY CORBYN’S 10 PLEDGES TO TRANSFORM BRITAIN

JEREMY CORBYN’S 10 PLEDGES TO TRANSFORM BRITAIN
See our plan 


Labour’s aim is to rebuild and transform Britain, for the many not the few. These ten pledges set out the framework for what Labour will campaign for – and what a Labour government will do. You can help us to shape policies in these areas, and more.



Pledge 1 

1. FULL EMPLOYMENT


We will create a million good quality jobs across our regions and nations, and guarantee a decent job for all. By investing £500 billion in infrastructure and industry, backed up by a publicly-owned National Investment Bank and regional banks, we will build a high skilled, high tech, low carbon economy to ensure that no one and no community is left behind.
We will invest in the high speed broadband, energy, transport and homes that our country needs and allow good businesses to thrive, and support a new generation of co-operative enterprises.
Pledge 2



2. A SECURE HOMES GUARANTEE


We will build over a million new homes in five years, with at least half a million council homes, through our public investment strategy.
We will end insecurity for private renters by introducing rent controls, secure tenancies and a charter of private tenants’ rights, and increase access to affordable home ownership.
Pledge 3



3. SECURITY AT WORK


We will give people stronger employment rights from day one in a job, end exploitative zero hours contracts, and create new sectoral collective bargaining rights.
We will strengthen working people’s representation at work and the ability of trade unions to organise, so that working people have a real voice at work.
And we will put the defence of social and employment rights, as well as action against undercutting of pay and conditions through the exploitation of migrant labour, at the centre of the Brexit negotiations agenda for a new relationship with Europe.
Pledge 4



4. A SECURE NHS AND SOCIAL CARE


We will end health service privatisation and bring services into a secure, publicly-provided NHS.
We will integrate the NHS and social care for older and disabled people, funding dignity across the board, and ensure parity for mental health services.
Pledge 5



5. A NATIONAL EDUCATION SERVICE


We will build a new National Education Service, open to all throughout their lives. We will ensure there is universal childcare to give all children a good start in life, allowing greater sharing of caring responsibilities and removing barriers to women participating in the labour market.
We will bring about the progressive restoration of free education for all; and guarantee quality apprenticeships and adult skills training.
Pledge 6




6. ACTION TO SECURE OUR ENVIRONMENT


We will act to protect the future of our planet, with social justice at the heart of our environmental policies, and take action to fulfil the Paris climate agreement.
We will ensure a fair transition to a low-carbon economy, and drive the expansion of the green industries and jobs of the future, using our National Investment Bank to invest in public and community-owned renewable energy.
We will deliver clean energy and curb energy bill rises for households – energy for the 60 million, not the Big Six energy companies. We will defend and extend EU environmental protections.
Pledge 7




7. PUT THE PUBLIC BACK INTO OUR ECONOMY


We will rebuild public services and expand democratic participation, put the public back into our economy, give people a real say in their local communities with increased local and regional democracy.
We will act to ‘insource’ our public and local council services, increase access to leisure, arts and sports across the country, and expand our publicly controlled bus network.
We will bring our railways into public ownership and extend democratic social control over our energy.
Pledge 8




8. CUT INEQUALITY IN INCOME AND WEALTH


We will build a progressive tax system so that wealth and the highest earners are fairly taxed, and shrink the gap between the highest and lowest paid.
We will act to create a more equal society, boost the incomes of the poorest and close the gender pay gap.
Pledge 9



9. ACTION TO SECURE AN EQUAL SOCIETY


We will ensure that the human rights of all citizens are respected and all are protected from discrimination and prejudice.
We will take action to tackle violence against women and girls, racism and discrimination on the basis of faith, and secure real equality for LGBT and disabled people.
We will defend the Human Rights Act and guarantee full rights for EU citizens living and working in Britain – and not allow them to be used as pawns in Brexit negotiations.
Pledge 10



10. PEACE AND JUSTICE AT THE HEART OF FOREIGN POLICY


We will put conflict resolution and human rights at the heart of foreign policy, commit to working through the United Nations, end support for aggressive wars of intervention and back effective action to alleviate the refugee crisis.
We will build human rights and social justice into trade policy, honour our international treaty obligations on nuclear disarmament and encourage others to do the same.

The Tories have just a 12 seat majority , that can be easily overturned , people need to stop thinking that they are voting for one man if they vote Labour they are voting for a party with policies, those policies have been hailed by some in the media this week , it is ignorant to say one man will run our country, read the policies then make up your minds, we say this to you all are you prepared to allow the Tories back into to office to carry on dismantling our NHS ? are you prepared to deny your children the treatment you and members of your family get on the NHS ? , you are voting for a party named Labour that will save our NHS over to you .

As you would imagine I am delighted with these pledges and will be working with my local branch and Constituency party to ensure we have a Labour government on June 9th to implement them Very Happy

I'm scared that people like Billy and MrRAW are going to bottle it because they don't like Jezza.

Well I don't like Theresa May, she couldn't lay straight in bed!   affraid
