Anti Austerity

Ending welfare cuts and demonization

Ending the bedroom tax and other disability cuts, LHA cuts, and ending the benefits cap should be priorities for the first day of a Labour government – and before. The party should be campaigning to end all punitive welfare cuts.

A comprehensive welfare state

We believe in place of the small state, we should instead be expanding the social security net, and considering universalist models for the future.
