As the General Election 2015 is almost upon us, it is finally time to ask yourself the all important question: who are you voting for?
For me, I will put my cross next to the Conservative Party.
What has swung it for me is the Conservatives dedication to strengthening our economy. The past five years we have seen a fantastic transformation. Now Britain is one of the fastest growing economies in the world. National finances are back under control, the deficit has been halved and more people than ever are in work.
Their policies have been set out to grow the economy further as a whole, generate even more jobs and higher wages for everybody.
The Conservative Party’s commitment to making the UK one of the top five places in the world to do business is admirable. They have not lost sight of supporting smaller businesses like redheadPR, as they plan to back small firms with a major business rates review and give businesses the most competitive taxes of any economy.
As a mother-of-two, the emphasis that the Conservatives are placing on youth employment is incredibly reassuring. They’ve already delivered a magnificent 2.2 million new apprenticeships and will be supporting 3 million more, taken the numbers of youth unemployment to remarkable lows, and since they have been in government, 1,000 jobs have been created every single day.
A few weeks ago, I was present as the Conservative Party launched their manifesto at the site of our client, UTC Swindon. The university technical college movement in the UK is highly important to the Conservatives; it is another sign of their vision to build for the future and the education of our young people.
If like me, you remember the struggles of 2008 and the recession, you will vote the Conservative Party in for a second term, allowing them to continue the fantastic work they have started.
