Martin Freeman explains how this election is a choice between two completely different sets of values.

Labour believes in community, compassion and fairness. That’s why we will build an economy that works for everyone. The Tories have cut taxes for millionaires and only work for people at the top.

A Labour government led by Ed Miliband will protect the NHS, create opportunities for young people, raise the minimum wage and ban exploitative zero-hours contracts.

What’s the choice in this election?

Now we know why David Cameron didn’t want a debate with Ed Miliband. On VAT, on immigration, on food banks, on the NHS, he couldn’t defend his record. He even admitted he couldn’t live on a zero hours contract. Ed Miliband has a better plan for a better future for Britain.

VAT: The tax the Tories love to raise

This video charts three times the Tories have said they would not raise VAT:

  • Before the 1979 election, then Shadow Chancellor Geoffrey Howe said the Tories had “no intention” of raising VAT. After the election, it was raised from 8% to 15%.
  • Before the 1992 election, Chancellor Norman Lamont said he had “no need, no plans, and nor proposals to raise or extend the scope of VAT”. After the election, the scope of VAT was extended to gas and electricity bills.
  • Before the 2010 election, David Cameron said there were “no plans” to raise VAT. In 2011, VAT went up to 20%.

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

Britain's housing shortage is pushing home ownership out of reach for many people, and as a result private renting is now the norm for millions of families.

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.
