Here are the Conservative’s top 10 broken promises:
9 Pledge: To help Redcar Steel factory families with £80m fund to find new jobs. Reality: The fund is to be used, in part, to provide redundancy packages.
10 Pledge: The NHS is safe in our hands. Reality: The NHS deficit is approaching £2bn, 40% of NHS services have been privatised and TTIP threatens us with full privatisation of a service we built and paid for.
Although this list may seem overwhelming, there is a resistance building from within and without Westminster. Scotland and Wales look set to either ignore or oppose the anti-trade union bill being pursued by David Cameron. The Labour Party are starting to form the foundations of real opposition under the stewardship of Jeremy Corbyn. This, coupled with the direct and indirect actions by the public should give us all hope that the days of broken political promises can be put behind us and a fairer, more equitable society can be created.
