Labour’s manifesto offers real hope that we can transform our country into one that cares for everyone, meets our climate change targets and invests properly in our public services. And all fully costed by fair tax increases for the richest people and for corporations, by a Financial Transactions Tax and closing tax loopholes, as set out in the ‘Grey Book’.
