Warsi: getting Britain back on track

Conservative co-chairman Sayeeda Warsi writes ...

As Party Chairman, I spend a lot of my time on the road meeting people across the country and talking about how the Coalition is trying to achieve a better Britain.

Recently I visited Hyndburn, Derby and Doncaster where I spoke to supporters and members of the public about what the Government is doing and how we're doing it.

While we've got a lot more work to do, I think we've made a promising start:

We've brought Britain back from the brink by dealing with the deficit;
We're creating a new economic dynamism and bringing a pro-enterprise attitude to Government;
We're making tough but fair welfare reforms, meaning it will always pay to work. We're ending the absurd situation where some people can claim over £100,000 a year to live in large houses in expensive areas;
And we're protecting the most vulnerable in our society. We're ensuring real terms rise in health and 5-16 schools spending and we're introducing a new £7.2 billion fairness premium to support the least well off.
Our long-term approach is very different to what Mr. Miliband is up to. Ed Miliband was at the heart of the Labour Government that created this mess - but he has no credible plan to clear it up. Instead, he opposes almost every one of our measures to deal with Britain's biggest peacetime deficit.

He actually summed up Labour's position very well in an interview with the Guardian this week: "in terms of policy...we start with a blank page".

So please send this email on to your friends and family and let them know about the start we've made in building a better Britain - and together, we can hold Ed Miliband to account.
