Level-up Britain

We left the EU just as the global effects of Coronavirus took hold. We are faced with the greatest economic crisis in a generation. 

But we also have an opportunity to get the best social and economic outcomes for the British people. And we have a responsibility to make sure our leaders' decisions are made based on science, reality and facts, not of ideology or populism.

    Low on energy - why the global energy crisis is acutely affecting Britons

    Energy price rises are a global phenomenon. As countries across the world reopen their economies, demand for many things - including energy - has gone up. In Europe, an unusually cold and prolonged winter last year, led to the depletion of gas reserves, and wind power generation has been reduced...

    A Fair Recovery for all of Britain

    We left the EU just as COVID hit the world. One avoidable, the other unforeseeable, we will all be living with the consequences for years to come.  What we can change is how we decide to react and recover.  We want small businesses, entrepreneurs and workers to be at the...

LEVELLING UP MUST BE MORE THAN AN EMPTY SLOGAN

Britain is hurtling towards a winter of discontent. With this Government in the driver’s seat, we shouldn’t be surprised if we get nothing better than a trainwreck. 

The Government touts its ‘flagship’ levelling-up policy on every occasion - but nobody knows what it actually means. For now, it’s just a lot of hot air - a gaping hole where a real plan for strengthening this country into the future should exist. 

Sign now to tell the Government you won't tolerate more failure.

This Government has form when it comes to not planning ahead. British people are being assaulted by a cost of living crisis, with prices rocketing and inflation putting pressure on pockets. But the Government has no plan for how to fix that. In fact, it’s made it worse by cutting Universal Credit and proposing National Insurance rises which will hit low and middle-income workers hardest. 

And look at how the Government has handled the energy crisis. By not planning for long-term sustainable energy sources, the Government has failed to protect us from shocks in the volatile global fossil fuels market - leaving British customers uniquely vulnerable to skyrocketing prices. 

The Government has done exactly the same with Brexit negotiations, committing to all sorts of promises it never had any intention of keeping. This reckless and short-sighted approach risks exposing Britons to more economic hardship. That’s on top of the current supply chain crisis which has been made worse in Britain by this Government’s failure to face up to the reality of HGV drivers leaving the UK and the profession in droves. And don’t get us started on its handling of Covid.

The Government offers lip-service reassurances at every turn, but these ring hollow when we see the reality that confronts us. The reality is our society is in a health, economic, social and environmental crisis. Failing to plan is a plan to fail.


Covid case numbers are rising fast, and so we expect more hospitalisations, more deaths, more cases of long-Covid - more pressure on our NHS. But instead of learning the lessons from 2020 and taking quick action, the Government is sacrificing our longer-term prospects of freedom by allowing case numbers to run out of control. Does this feel like Deja vu to you? 

Add your name and call for the Government to take responsibility and take real action now.

The Government is blaming everybody but itself for these crises. Businesses suffering the fallout of a bad Brexit are blamed for supply chain disruption and labour shortages that are out of their control. People who have not been called yet for their booster vaccine are being condemned for not having got one. People who can’t afford to turn the heating up are told to put on a jumper.

Where is the responsibility? Where is the accountability? All we get from this Government are slogans and scapegoats - while the prospect of genuinely bringing prosperity to people around Britain diminishes by the day.

Do you think this Government’s sloganeering in the face of multiple crises is unacceptable? Show them they have to change course by signing our petition today, and call on them to take responsibility and make some plans. That would be a start.

Level up donate

THE GOVERNMENT’S PROMISES TO LEVEL UP BRITAIN ARE LITTLE MORE THAN EMPTY WORDS.

Now that we have left the EU, British communities are facing unprecedented challenges. The Government has promised to ‘level up’ Britain, but it’s just empty words.

Instead of preparing for a strong and prosperous future, the Government is presiding over a series of crises that have no end-point in sight. Each of these crises widens the chasm of inequality here in the UK. 

This Government has failed to do its job and work in the interests of British people. It loves touting the trade deals it is making, but doesn’t care that at best they add little to GDP and at worst, reduce it. . They love talking about sustainable energy without providing sustainable funding. This Government is all slogan and no substance. And that’s why we are embroiled in crises spanning trade, the environment and now the re-escalation of the Covid pandemic. 

Instead of doing the things that could actually benefit Britons across the regions, the Government remains passive and unprepared. Its inactivity is made worse by the fact that its only activity seems to be blaming British people and businesses for everything that seems to be going wrong. Armando Iannucci couldn’t make it up. 

So, if you believe that levelling up should be more than a slogan, and you believe that we need strong voices to challenge this Government for its failings, donate today to help Best for Britain continue our work. The more money that you help us raise, the more people we can speak to, the more ads we can run, and the more work we can do to hold the Government to account.
