Labour candidate speaks up on cost of living crisis

Labour and Co-operative Parliamentary candidate for North West Leicestershire Jamie McMahon has launched his campaign for 2015 by speaking up on Britain's cost of living crisis. 

Jamie argues that whether it's energy prices, the cost of food or stagnant wages local people are struggling and need a government that will act.

Jamie said: "Prices have grown faster than wages in all but one month since David Cameron became Prime Minister over three years ago, meaning people are worse off. We may have minimal growth finally back into the economy but local people in Coalville certainly aren't feeling the benefit."

Jamie and North West Leicestershire Labour have been campaigning locally in Coalville on the need to help people with the cost of living crisis. Asking people their views on Labour's Energy Price freeze and running a petition calling for David Cameron to freeze energy bills now. 

"It is clear people want to see their energy bills frozen. Prices are rising and profits soaring. That's why Labour will freeze energy prices until 2017 if elected at the next General Election, helping people while we take the time to fix the market and beef up the regulator. Labour will help people locally." Jamie concluded.
