Emily’s Economic Road Map

The Paul Burstow-Scully duo are putting a privileged few before hardworking families who are £1,600 a year worse off since the Coalition came into office in 2010. Only through Labour’s Emily Brothers can the residents of Sutton and Cheam contribute to making Britain better off.

Emily Brothers recognises that for hardworking people things are getting harder not easier.
• Hardworking people are £1,600 a year worse off under David Cameron.
• Family energy bills have been allowed to rise by over £300 since the 2010 election.
• Under the Tories we have had the slowest recovery for 100 years, breaking their promise to balance the books by 2015 and borrowing £190 billion more than they planned, with nearly 900,000 young people still unemployed.

Paul Burstow and Paul Scully are two sides of the same coin. They put a privileged few before hardworking families.
• The Tory-LibDem Coalition has cut tax for people on over £150,000 a year while raising it for everyone else.
• Small businesses are still struggling to get finance from the banks. Bank bonuses soared by 83% as bankers took advantage of the 50p tax cut.

Emily says that Labour will earn our way out of the cost of living crisis by building an economy that works for working people.
• Freeze gas and electricity bills until 2017 and reform the energy market to prevent customers being ripped off.
• Make work pay by expanding free childcare for three and four year olds to 25 hours for working parents, paid for by an increase in the bank levy.
• Back long-term investment by getting 200,000 homes built a year by 2020 and establishing a British Investment Bank.
• Get the next generation into work, with a compulsory jobs guarantee for young people unemployed for a year or more – with a real paid job they’ll have to take or lose benefits, paid for by a tax on bank bonuses.

Emily explains that Labour will take a fairer approach to bringing down the deficit.
• In tougher times, we will make tougher choices on spending, deliver a surplus on the current budget and get the national debt falling as soon as possible in the next Parliament. We will scrap winter-fuel payments for the wealthiest pensioners.
• We will get the deficit down in a fairer way, by raising the top rate of tax from 45p back to 50p for the richest one per cent of earners on over £150,000 per annum.
