Even though I am not an full-fledged adherent I still think they're better - much better in fact - than the Labour party so I accept and wish my opponent good luck.

I want to thank con for accepting this debate.

The Labour Party have been in power in Britain for about 30 years out the last 100. It was roughly 100 years ago when they were formed then the Labour Representation Commitee. During this time theyve delivered.
The Welfare State.
The Minimun Wage.
Tax Credits
The NHS
Legalisation Of Abortion
LGBT Rights
These are just a few of the great swathe of Labour Achievements.

From 1997 to 2010 Labour were in power. During that time they achieved record investment on Health and Education, huge Devolution to Scotland and Wales, 85000 more Nurses, 32000 more Doctors, 36000 more Teachers, Paturnity Leave, 14000 more Police Officers. There was 600,000 Children lifted out of relative poverty, The human rights act, Gaurenteed paid holidays, reduced class sizes, record Maths and English levels. heart disease deaths down by 150000, cancer deaths down by 50000, Crime cut by 32%.

The tories have called Labour Party the party of recessions but that is so untrue. Out of the last three recessions in Britain two have been under the tories and one under Labour. They have also called Labour the party of borrowing but that is also ridiculous considering the National Debt has doubled under the last 6 years of the Tories. They have added more debt than every Labour government put together.

And lets look at the Conservatives record.

Since 2010.

Debt - Up
Borrowing - Up
Poverty - Up
Living Standards - Down
Waiting Times - Up
Child Poverty - Up
Spending On Social Care - Down
Police Numbers - Down
Food Banks - Up
Food Bank Usage - Up
Inequality - Up

90 people a month die from the Tories benifit cuts.

At the same time the Tories look after the Rich.
Theyve cut the top rate of tax.
Theyve Cut Tax For Mega Corporations
Everyone earning over £1,000,000 a year now gets £40,000 extra while at the same time disabled benifits are slashed.

I now await my opponents response.
