Conservative support for the armed forces

From Spencer Drury, PPC for Greenwich & Woolwich:

Labour’s Debt Mountain

In Labour’s March Budget, the Chancellor announced that Britain would spend more on debt interest (£43bn) than Transport (£22bn), the Police (£36bn) or Defence (£40bn) next year. As David Cameron said "the only thing Labour bring are debt, waste and taxes".

Conservatives plan a better education for our children

Conservatives in Greenwich and nationally have clear plans to support our children in doing better at school. In the 2009 league tables, Greenwich Secondary Schools have the worst results in London at 5 A* to C grades for GCSE. Also only 14.5% of Greenwich GCSE students achieve a ‘traditional’ education of C grade or above in English, Maths, Science and a foreign language.

Labour abandons the Thames Gateway

Labour has stopped participating in the Thames Gateway organisation which worked to improve employment, transport, housing and regeneration of those areas which border the Thames (including Greenwich and Woolwich). 

Despite considering it ‘extremely successful’, the Labour run Council thinks our waterfront communities no longer need its support and funds.

 

Labour most misleading leaflet ever?

Labour resort to scare tactics in West Greenwich

 Following on from another weekend of delivering to West Greenwich homes, it was apparent that the local Labour Council has resorted to scare tactics by intimidating Greenwich tenants.

Local hospitals among worst for patient safety

A report published in November placed south east London’s hospitals among the worst in the country for patient safety. The ‘Dr Foster Hospital Guide 2009’ placed the South London Healthcare NHS Trust (SLHT - including the Queen Elizabeth Hospital) in the lowest of 5 groups.

Fighting for our civil liberties

Between 1997 and 2006 this Labour government introduced 3023 new offences many of which are repressive and restrict free speech and the right to protest. Many were introduced in the name of fighting terrorism. In 2005 Maya Evans was arrested at the Cenotaph for reading out the names of the British soldiers killed in Iraq, because she did not have permission to be there.
