Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn will visit Glasgow on Sunday 28 May to urge voters to choose Labour for a government for the many not the few. Jeremy will address a rally in Glasgow on Sunday evening, at which he will make the case for rejecting Tory and SNP austerity in favour of an investment-driven economy under Labour.
Jeremy Corbyn, leader of the Labour Party, will say to a rally of hundreds in Glasgow’s Old Fruitmarket:
“With a Labour government in Westminster, Scotland will be part of a country run for the many not the few. Labour will end the cuts to budgets and ensure that Scotland has the resources it requires to provide the public services people need.
“Our mission is first and foremost to make our country one in which people aren’t held back and ensures that the life chances of a child in Easterhouse or Possilpark are the same as those of the children in Bearsden or the West End.
“Our mission is to wipe out shameful health inequalities, in this great city and every other city across our country. Labour will work to eliminate child poverty and tackle the injustice which has led to working families being £1,400 a year worse off under the Tories.
“I want to live in a country that values our elderly people and the service and commitment they have made to our society. Labour will protect pensions so they provide a decent standard of living. And we will provide a social care service that is sufficiently resourced and properly cares for our older people, ensuring social care staff are paid what they deserve.
“Labour will introduce a £10 an hour minimum wage – a move which will directly benefit half a million Scots – and we will ban zero hours contracts to help 60,000 working people in Scotland craving secure work.
“Scots have a choice in this election – a Labour government which will govern for the many not the few, or the continuation of Tory and SNP austerity.
“Where the SNP simply passes on Tory austerity without putting up a fight, Labour will transform our economy through investment and development. No more tax breaks for the richest and big business.
“While the SNP obsesses over how to get another divisive independence, by contrast Labour believes that together we're stronger. We’re on the side of the majority of Scots who don’t want a second referendum.
“I’m asking the people of Scotland not to take a gamble on your future. We don’t have to accept the politics of division and austerity. Things can, and they will, change under a Labour government for the many not the few.”
