Clegg admits his own government is bad for the UK

Nick Clegg with his Ministerial red box

In the aftermath of David Cameron’s mishandling of European negotiations last week, Deputy Prime Minster and leader of the Liberal Democrat Party Nick Clegg yesterday made a shocking admission. He confirmed what many people in Liverpool have known for the past two years. He said that his own government’s policies are “a bad thing for jobs, a bad thing for growth, and a bad thing for the livelihood of millions of people in this country.”

In contrast, since the Labour Party was voted into power locally in Liverpool in May 2010, we have invested to create almost 1000 new apprenticeships in our first two years in power; secured £40m private investment for a stunning exhibition centre on the waterfront; and we are  pressing ahead with  the redevelopment of Edge Lane Retail Park, creating an extra 1500 jobs.

While the Liberal Democrats admit to causing harm to the UK, the Labour Party can commit to helping create more jobs and apprenticeships, and help keep Liverpool well-placed and strong in worrying times.

Mossley Hill Labour community clean-up

These are difficult times for councils, so we decided to do what we could to help clean up our area ourselves. With that in mind, we’ve been round Aigburth and Mossley Hill this morning with a brush, a few cloths and a set of ladders to brush up and clean the parts of Aigburth and Mossley Hill that most needed it. We hope you appreciate the difference. Here’s just one example of the clean-up from this morning to show the difference people can make just by doing things for themselves.





Cameron and Clegg’s costly NHS plans

Cameron and Clegg’s NHS plans will cost over £38 million in Liverpool

It is fast coming to light the extent of the hidden cost of the Lib Dem/Tory Government’s wasteful NHS reorganisation in Liverpool. New guidelines will force the local NHS to put aside over £38m from their budget this year and next to pay for a costly NHS restructure that David Cameron repeatedly ruled out.

Local community campaigner Emily Spurrell is outraged at the cost of the government’s unnecessary and wasteful spending.

“These shocking new figures show the Government’s reorganisation is costing the NHS even more than we first feared. It is scandalous that they are telling our local NHS to hold back millions of pounds for their own reckless plans whilst thousands of nursing jobs are being axed.

“Liverpool has already seen an 85% increase in the number of patients waiting longer than 18 weeks for treatment since the Lib Dems and Tories got elected. The reorganisation is hitting the NHS hard and costs are now topping £3.4bn across the country for the first time.”

Liverpool Labour investing in schools

Last year, the Lib Dems in government axed the £350m Building Schools for the Future programme, which would have seen 26 local schools rebuilt or modernised. In response, the Labour council in Liverpool have now started consulting on a £100m programme to transform eight secondary schools in the city. Local Labour Councillor Patrick Hurley said: “This programme is great news for local families. It’s massively important for the future of the city that our children get the best start in life, and that’s what we’re aiming to achieve here.”

Councillor Jane Corbett, Cabinet member for Education, said: “It is part of our ambition to make sure that new schools are closely tied to the city’s regeneration and help build stronger communities. “We have addressed some of the key concerns of Government around the cost of BSF by coming up with an innovative alternative way of constructing schools which gives huge flexibility at a much lower cost.”

Lib Dems slash early years funding

From April 2011, central government funding for Sure Start children’s centres was changed so that it is now included within the government’s “Early Intervention Grant”. This fund was set at 10.9% lower than the funds it replaced, equating to a £370 million cut for much needed and greatly valued services.

Shortly after being elected last year, Lib Dem Education Minister Sarah Teather said “There is no reason Sure Start centres should not be able to charge for services.”

Your local Labour Council opposes this unnecessary government attack on the services that parents use the most. Cllr Hurley said “This is yet another example of Lib Dems and Tories joining forces to launch an attack on the services hard-pressed families use. These are greatly valued children’s services that should not be cut just because the parents work for a living. The politicians in Parliament who are doing this to our communities ought to be ashamed of themselves.”

Action for city jobs

Lib Dem/Tory government cuts are too fast and too deep – causing untold damage to the economy, forcing firms to axe thousands of jobs throughout Liverpool.

That’s why your Labour council is working night and day to bring new jobs and firms to the city. Labour is working hard to attract new businesses and investment to help boost employment.

Labour is investing in our young people too. Despite massive government cutbacks, Labour has managed to create hundreds of new apprenticeships.

After years of delay while the Lib Dems were in power, we are now pressing ahead with the redevelopment of Edge Lane Retail Park,

creating an extra 1500 jobs. Labour has secured £40m private investment for a stunning exhibition centre on the waterfront, creating another 1300 new jobs. More than 3000 jobs will be created with the redevelopment of the Central Station site, creating new shops, offices and a cinema. And Labour secured a deal with Tesco to take 100 people off the dole when they recently opened two new stores.

More apprentices for Liverpool

Young people are being hit hard by Lib Dem/Tory government cuts.

Youth unemployment has doubled with more than one in four out of work. That is why your Labour Council had to take action to help more youngsters get training and a good chance of a job.

Labour has already helped create more than 130 apprenticeships across the city, and this year another 700 will be hired. The jobs are in a wide range of trades, from joiners and electricians to computer technicians.

This really is excellent news. I am delighted to welcome Cllr Hinnigan to the Liverpool Labour Party.
