The Conservative party chairman writes ...
Parliament isn’t working. Instead of getting on with the country’s priorities, MPs have spent all their time arguing about Brexit.
We need to break the deadlock that is preventing Parliament from getting Brexit done, so that we can move on.
With this election, we have a chance to ensure the country has a functioning government. A government that works for the people, and delivers on voters’ priorities.
On the 12th of December, you’ll cast your vote. So the next five years are down to you.
We can end the uncertainty, end the delays – and put Britain back on the road to a brighter future.
Getting Brexit done with our new deal. £33.9 billion extra for the NHS. 20,000 extra police officers. More money for every single school in the country. And a growing economy.
But here’s the risk. Labour and the Lib Dems can’t win a majority. So the more votes they get, the more likely another hung parliament is.
The other parties have ruled out a coalition with us. So in a hung parliament, Jeremy Corbyn would be in charge. For Five. Long. Years.
Five years of tax rises, out-of-control spending, more referendums, and politicians arguing about Brexit. The same politicians who spent the last three years getting nothing done.
So let’s not go back to square one. The road to a brighter future starts today. And it starts with you.
Tell your friends. Forward this email. Together, we can get Brexit done – and get on with the country’s priorities.
Rt Hon James Cleverly MP Chairman of the Conservative Party
