Today sees the launch of the Conservatives Manifesto for the General Election. This manifesto is unlike any seen from a British political party because the Conservatives are saying no government on its own can solve the big problems we face – everyone is going to have to get involved. That is why it is called an ‘Invitation to join the government of Britain’.
The manifesto brings together all the work done since the last election as the Party has changed into a modern, progressive Party.
The central idea in this manifesto is that we are all in this together, that by working together we can change the country for the better.
We won’t get the economy moving again with a tax on jobs and higher government spending, we need to help businesses create jobs.
We won’t solve our social problems with more big government, we need to build the Big Society where families are strong and communities are safe.
We will never change politics if it is only left to politicians in Westminster, we need to give people real power and control over their lives.
