Sherwood MP Believes Labour Are Stuck In The ‘70’s

10th January 2017
News, Mansfield, Sherwood

Mansfield MP Sir Alan Meale has hit back at Sherwood MP Mark Spencer’s comments that the Labour Party’s policies are outdated. Labour Leader Jeremy Corbyn says he would like to see a maximum cap on the amount people can earn.

Mr. Corbyn said he thought introducing the limit would be "the fairer thing to do".

He said the UK's levels of income disparity were getting worse, saying this cannot go on "if we want to live in a more egalitarian society".

The idea of a maximum earnings cap was suggested by Mr Corbyn during Labour's 2015 leadership contest.

Sherwood’s Conservative MP Mark Spencer said, “People are not warming to them (The Labour Party), I understand that and I think they have gone back to policies of the 1970’s, we have had those debates and we have moved on.”

Mansfield MP Sir Alan Meale had this to say about Mr. Spencer’s comments, “People have been trying to get rid of the Labour Party for a century and more, the reality is we are still there, we are still around and we are working very very hard.”

“The situation is that people do understand what our project is and until we fulfil it and I think there will always be a reason for us to be there.”
