Tories Exposed as Callous and Uncaring

12672178_10207611126970552_7246847066524738748_o.jpgIn a detailed survey of the local impact of Tory policies, Labour’s Parliamentary Candidate for North West Leicestershire, Sean Sheahan, has revealed some stark truths which he claims exposes the Tories as “callous and uncaring.”

Crime in Leicestershire is on the increase and violent crime has doubled since the last General Election in May 2015. Since 2010, under Theresa May, police numbers have been cut by 20,000. Sean said, “Tory policies are directly to blame for the rise in crime and sadly it’s often the most vulnerable in society who suffer.”

Leicestershire schools are facing the looming threat of £33 million cuts by 2019 if the Tories are re-elected. Many schools will lose teaching staff, leading to overcrowded classrooms. Sean said, “parents and teachers I have met during our campaign are angry at the extent of these cuts, and feel badly let down by the Tories.”

In February this year, Leicestershire County Council Tories cut £1 million from Children’s Centre budgets. Sean Sheahan said, “This decision harms young families by taking away vital support and leaves them more vulnerable to problems in the future.”

Jeremy Corbyn has described air quality in Britain as a scandal, after the Tory Government were hauled through the courts over illegal levels of air pollution. North West Leicestershire has the highest mortality rates in the East Midlands due to fine particulate matter, according to Public Health England. Sean said, “it’s shocking that we have worse death rates from dirty air than even Leicester and Nottingham. This cannot be allowed to continue.”
