Birmingham Labour

FOR THE MANY, NOT THE FEW

Labour's Manifesto

Introduction from Sir Albert Bore Leader, Birmingham City Council

Labour believes in local councils that work hard to help improve people’s lives, to support the economy and create jobs through investment in infrastructure and regeneration, to care for those in need from birth through to old age, to provide opportunities for learning and development of skills and to help people to lead healthier, safer and more secure lives.

We believe in a democratic city in which all communities and individuals can have a say in planning the future and the decisions that affect them. And we believe in working for a fairer society, in which so many lives are not blighted by social exclusion and inequality of opportunities.

Labour believes that we are all part of one community as a city and that we have a duty to look after those who are least able to look after themselves. But we also believe that government should empower people to take more control of their own lives and to work together to solve the problems faced in their community.

These are the values we have worked hard to put into practice since winning the election of 2012 and taking on the task of leading the City Council.

Labour will take on eight long term challenges for the city:

 Driving economic growth and job creation by closing the skills gap
 Supporting young people to overcome the barriers to achieving their full potential
 Reducing child poverty
 Improving the local environment and reducing anti-social behaviour and crime
 Helping older people to live independent lives
 Improving health and wellbeing
 Providing affordable and suitable housing
 Welcoming diversity and promoting social cohesion.

I want to help Labour back into power but worried about the reluctance to settle the equal pay issue. The legal stonewalling makes me concerned about Labour’s ethics.
