Hi, I'm Alex, I'm a former school governor,

0:00:020:00:03

I'm a trade unionist and I'm a working woman,

0:00:030:00:05

and I'm under no illusion

0:00:050:00:06

that the next few weeks are going to be tough.

0:00:060:00:08

This is going to be a general election unlike any other.

0:00:080:00:10

The people of Wales are angry.

0:00:100:00:12

They're angry at the damage being done to their communities

0:00:120:00:14

by the Tory cuts,

0:00:140:00:15

they're angry at being ignored by the Tories in Westminster

0:00:150:00:18

and they're angry at being ignored by a UK Tory government

0:00:180:00:20

that just doesn't care about the people of Wales.

0:00:200:00:23

But now we've got a chance to change things,

0:00:230:00:24

because here in Wales, Welsh Labour are showing

0:00:240:00:26

exactly what difference can be made when in government,

0:00:260:00:29

and under Carwyn Jones' leadership, Welsh Labour is united.

0:00:290:00:32

At this general election,

0:00:330:00:34

Welsh Labour's offering five bold pledges to the people of Wales.

0:00:340:00:38

A Wales where everyone can earn a decent wage...

0:00:380:00:41

We promise to protect living standards

0:00:410:00:43

and create better jobs closer to home.

0:00:430:00:45

A Labour government in Westminster

0:00:450:00:47

will introduce a real living wage of £10 per hour,

0:00:470:00:50

and invest in infrastructure, skills and new technology.

0:00:500:00:54

A Wales where everyone has access to top-class health care,

0:00:540:00:58

always free at the point of use...

0:00:580:00:59

We know that with a Labour government in Westminster,

0:00:590:01:02

there'll be more resources for Wales

0:01:020:01:04

and more stability in NHS and social care.

0:01:040:01:07

With Labour in Westminster, we can work together across borders

0:01:070:01:11

to give the NHS a bright future -

0:01:110:01:12

unlike the Tories, who tells fibs about health care in Wales,

0:01:120:01:16

smearing the hard-working staff

0:01:160:01:18

and dragging politics into the gutter.

0:01:180:01:21

A vision where every child achieves their potential

0:01:210:01:24

and has the best start in life...

0:01:240:01:26

We'll give all children the opportunity to achieve.

0:01:260:01:29

We're committed to protecting free school breakfasts,

0:01:290:01:32

and we're going to invest an additional £100 million

0:01:320:01:35

to further improve school standards in Wales over this Assembly term -

0:01:350:01:39

and that bill's on our record.

0:01:390:01:41

Because GCSE results have never been higher in Wales,

0:01:410:01:43

more children than ever are getting a passport to success.

0:01:430:01:47

We've cut the attainment gap for the poorest pupils at every key stage.

0:01:470:01:51

There will be no grammar schools or free schools in Wales.

0:01:510:01:55

We want every school to be a great school,

0:01:550:01:58

and a fair deal for all our children, with none left behind.

0:01:580:02:01

A Wales where our streets are safer...

0:02:030:02:06

We know that community safety is one

0:02:060:02:08

of the country's top priorities,

0:02:080:02:09

and so, a Labour government will

0:02:090:02:11

deliver 853 new police officers

0:02:110:02:13

in our communities in Wales.

0:02:130:02:15

A Labour government will also give

0:02:150:02:17

stronger rights to victims,

0:02:170:02:18

again building on the innovative

0:02:180:02:20

work we're doing here

0:02:200:02:21

on crime prevention

0:02:210:02:22

and tackling domestic violence.

0:02:220:02:25

Good jobs, good schools, good hospitals and good homes.

0:02:250:02:30

We're going to provide more affordable homes to rent and buy.

0:02:300:02:33

We've committed to deliver

0:02:330:02:35

20,000 more affordable homes,

0:02:350:02:37

and we're putting roofs over people's heads

0:02:370:02:40

in communities across Wales,

0:02:400:02:41

and these are the pledges that we'll be taking to the doorstep

0:02:410:02:45

in the coming days, these are the things people care about.

0:02:450:02:48

We've got to send the strongest possible group of Welsh Labour MPs

0:02:480:02:51

to Westminster on June 8th -

0:02:510:02:53

and the only anti-Tory vote in this election is a vote for Welsh Labour.

0:02:530:02:57

It's down to us to stop the Tories walking all over Wales -

0:02:570:03:00

and I know there's Welsh Labour, led by Carwyn Jones,

0:03:000:03:03

that's standing up for communities like mine and yours.

0:03:030:03:06

I'm proud of my community, I'm proud of my country,

0:03:060:03:09

and I'm proud of Welsh Labour's record.

0:03:090:03:11

That's why, on June 8th, I'm voting Welsh Labour.

0:03:110:03:14

So, to everyone in Wales who believes in a fair deal,

0:03:140:03:18

Welsh Labour is united to halt the Tories in their tracks,

0:03:180:03:22

to put fairness and decency back into government in Westminster.

0:03:220:03:27

With your support, we can fulfil that promise,

0:03:270:03:30

and we will stand up for Wales.

0:03:300:03:33

APPLAUSE
