Ed’s conference warning

MEXBOROUGH MP and Labour leader Ed Miliband will warn “ordinary families are facing a quiet crisis” in his keynote speech at the Labour Party’s annual conference next week.

He is due to tell party delegates and officials in Liverpool the “promise of Britain” – that every generation will do better than the last – is under threat.

In a statement released this week, Mr Miliband said: “Our conference will cover different policy areas, but everything will have one theme in common – fulfilling the promise of Britain.

“That’s not just our conference slogan: it is Labour’s mission.

“Too often our society rewards an irresponsible minority at the top and the bottom, while ordinary families are facing a quiet crisis with living standards squeezed, and opportunities for their kids under threat.

“And this Government is making it worse.”

He added: “Our conference will show that Labour is the party of change – changing our economy, our welfare system, and our deal for the next generation.

“That is how we will realise our country’s massive potential and fulfil the promise of Britain.”
