For the past 60 years, Stoke-on-Trent has suffered the indignity of socialist rule, and if you look at the state of our city now, you can see what that 60 years has achieved.
As industries ran down and jobs were lost, Labour sat on its haunches and did nothing, and as trade barriers were dropped, and Britain became flooded with cheap imports, Labour sat on its haunches and did nothing.
When the steelworks went, and the pottery industry all but died, Labour sat on its haunches and still did nothing.
And so we arrive at today.
The city is stricken, bar a handful of companies scattered across the place, there is no manufacturing any longer, there are no jobs any longer. Promises of regeneration have proved time and again to be nothing but lies, as swathes of the city are demolished, but not renewed, the city looks worse than it did after WW2, yet given all this, Labour still get voted in, they are still sat on their haunches, and Stoke-on-Trents all but terminal decline into dereliction and decay, continues unabated.
It seems as though no-one in the city is happy with what is happening to the city, yet the people responsible for the decline of this area are still at the helm, and they are still steering us towards the rocks, the same faces,
the same names, the same arrogance and incompetence.
England First Party does exactly what it says on the tin, it puts the concerns of England and the English first, but saving Stoke-on-Trent isn't about national policies, it's about what we would do locally, it's about the policies that we would implement to make this city more successful and prosperous.
Over the coming weeks, we shall publish a list of the policies that we believe will help raise this city from the bottom of the heap where it has resided for far too long, because we know that Stoke-on-Trent can still be saved from the jaws of this Labour made destruction.
There is the chance of a successful future for this city, but it means breaking away from this socialist ideology that has wrecked what was once a thriving city economy, and turned it into a wasteland of demolition and council corruption.
IF THEY HAVEN'T GOT IT RIGHT AFTER 60 YEARS, THEY ARE NOT GOING TO GET IT RIGHT!
