A Labour government will support renters with longer-term tenancies and banning rip-off letting fees.

There was much uproar at the above Labour press team tweet, much (if not most) from what the party may well consider it’s “core vote” protesting a statement which unfortunately does appear to pander to specious right wing logic that public services have to be cut and cut drastically. We all know the banking sector is still rolling in giant bonuses and that there’s massive avoidance of corporation tax.

Actors, like any other profession, benefit from a Trade Union, which represents them in matters relating to work. Equity has been this body, representing actors for a long time.  An Equity Card formerly stood as a status symbol –  a badge of honour.

Here at Chinese for Labour, 7 May 2015 (aka the General Election) has been firmly etched into our calendars for a while, and we’re all working hard to secure a Labour government that will deliver a fairer future for Britain.

Saying that, we also understand that life can be very busy and remembering to register to vote is not always at the top of people’s to-do list.

But come that day in Spring, we’re really keen for you to have your say and don’t want you to have missed out because the voter registration deadline passed you by.

Voting is your ticket to bringing about a government that represents you, what you believe in and your hopes for the future of Britain -- so make sure you’re counted.

The last day to register will be 20 April 2015 and it’ll only take five minutes to get it done -- click here to get started: https://www.gov.uk/register-to-vote
