Tackling Inequality

Tim Farron says that his mission for 2016 is to raise inequality up the political agenda.

In a special Christmas message for the Mirror, he says:

From my family, to yours I want to wish readers of the Sunday Mirror a happy, joyous and restful Christmas.

My primary mission politically in 2016 is to raise the issue of inequality up the political agenda.

No-one should go hungry or homeless in Britain. We must have a national crusade to end this scandal. Once and for all.

We have the mission but we must also have the will power to do it.

The values of Christmas – charity, togetherness and compassion must be taken forward and I am committed to doing that.

He also reveals some of what he will be doing over the Festive Season:

As with every year, I’ll be making the journey with my children to Ewood Park to see Blackburn Rovers play over the Christmas break, and re-watching the Father Ted Christmas Special for what feels like the hundredth time!

All these Farron family traditions make my Christmas because I get real quality time with my family and they remind me how important that sense of belonging is.

It is good to see inequality being put at centre stage.
