Labour will also abolish cruel PIP and Work Capability Assessments
Liverpool Labour candidate Ian Byrne has been devoting time to campaigning for Margaret Greenwood across the river in the marginal seat of Wirral West. Greenwood toppled the abysmal Tory Esther McVey in 2017.
Byrne made a video about an encounter with a voter in Wirral West who hadn’t made her mind up about which party she would support – even though she was ‘going through hell’ in the Tories’ brutal regime of constant disability reassessments that have led a huge number of disabled people to attempt suicide.
The woman didn’t know that Labour is going to abolish the despicable PIP and WCA assessments that have inflicted such misery – but she told Byrne she was inspired by hearing about the Fans Supporting Foodbanks initiative in Liverpool.
An initiative that Byrne co-founded – and as he talked to her about the belief in his working-class community that had driven him first to found FSF and now to stand for election as West Derby’s MP, she lit up and committed to voting Labour:
Labour stands for community pride and solidarity – and always has done, as the movement’s marching banners have shown throughout its history:
If Labour communicates that successfully – along with its incredible policies to end the misery of vulnerable millions – it will win.
