The Conservatives have made their choice

ChildrenThe Conservatives have made their choice for the next election.

These are tough times for families in the middle. We have to cut the deficit. But we have to do it fairly. Labour will halve the deficit in four years by taking tough action, such as raising the top rate of tax for those earning over £150,000, and freezing pay for the top civil service earners.

George Osborne has made his choice too

* He has chosen to take tax credits away from middle income families.

* He has chosen to scrap Child Trust Funds for 900,000 children every year.

* He has chosen to take £1,000 in direct payments from families earning over £16,040 with two children.

* He has instead chosen a tax giveaway of £200,000 to the wealthiest 3,000 estates in the country.

Help us make sure that David Cameron knows that people won't tolerate his attacks on the Britain's hard working families by signing our petition to oppose him.
