Our manifesto for a better London
Up to half a million jobs are under threat following the capitulation of the Conservative/Lib-Dem’s to the EU, which is trying to close down The City.
London is the financial capital of the world: Don’t let it be sold out to pay for Eurozone bail-outs.
London’s financial services industries pay our pensions, build our hospitals, heat our schools and provide jobs for three nillion Londoners. We must defend them!
