In recent times, I can recall no General Election holding as much importance as this one. This is an election which will define and shape the future of generations to come.

Broken promises, and unfulfilled manifestos. That's what we have been offered by this Tory government, and the sham coalition that preceded it. Year after year, Theresa May's Tory party has pledged to rebalance the economy, clamp down on aggressive tax evasion, invest in education and public services such as the NHS, as well as ensure workers' rights for all citizens.
