They must go – Arise Opening Rally

Speech given at the opening rally of the Arise Festival.

The Tories are meltdown and yet what their two leadership hopefuls can offer the country is lower taxes for the wealthy.The New Economics Foundation's analysis tells us that Boris and Hunt's tax proposals would leave a further 50,000 families in poverty. That will further devastate families like those in East End, in Tower Hamlets where we already have the highest child poverty rate in the country. The only way we can really sort out this mess is if we have a General Election and get into government! At Arise 2019 – a festival of Labour's left ideas
