Entitled "Ambition for Darlington - Ambitious for You" Labour's manifesto for May's local elections was launched today at a meeting of candidates and Party workers. We were addressed by Cllr. John Williams and MP Alan Milburn.
Alan pointed out how Darlington had changed since there has been a Labour Council and Labour Government - under the Tories unemployment was 9% and now it's 3%. Double-digit inflation and interest rates are a thing of the past. He contrasted Labour's ambitious document with the Tories, with its absence of ambition and a lack of policies to take Darlington forward.
So the document can be viewed on the internet, I've created a unique site for the document - its Darlington's Labour Vision.
