I’ve been at Whaley Bridge station this morning talking to commuters about the high cost of rail fares. At £14.20 for a day return from Whaley Bridge to Manchester it’s no wonder that with a failing service, usually two carriages and too many cancellations lots of commuters are wanting to see a Labour government next week. We will renationalise our railways and reduce rail fares by a third from the 1st of January instead of raising them by 2.7% like the Conservatives will.

Ruth George, Labour's Champion for High Peak

“There has never been such a huge difference between the political parties and the future they offer. I want people in High Peak to know that there is a better alternative than a government which is about to close nearly 20 hospitals, cut £3 billion from our schools, plunge over 4 million working families into poverty through their harsh cuts to Universal Credit and refuses to rule out cuts to pension increases or higher tax and national insurance. In contrast, I will promote Labour’s message of long-term investment in public services, fairness for working people, and decent support for pensioners and those who cannot work.”
