Keir Starmer MP, Leader of the Labour Party, speaking ahead of Thursday’s elections, said:
“Today’s elections are a chance to vote for a brighter, better future for you, your family and your community.
“This is a changed Labour Party. Under new leadership, we are putting working people and their communities first. Your priorities will always be Labour’s priorities, with Labour councils, councillors and mayors utterly focused on delivering the secure jobs, safer streets and health services we all want to see. They are the first step of Labour’s plan to rebuild Britain, based on security and opportunities across the country.
“The choice at this election is simple: a Labour Party in your community that is creating jobs, tackling crime and protecting our NHS or a Conservative Party that handing out contracts to their mates, or wasting taxpayers’ money on contracts that don’t deliver.
“Vote Labour today for more jobs, more police on the streets and an NHS that is protected. Vote Labour for a Britain that works for you.”
