Because they represent the working class
Inequality in income has reached the highest level since records began in 1961.
Inequality in Britain is among the worst in the developed world, with the highest rate of poverty in western Europe.
Working-class children will generally do significantly less well at school, earn less at work and die younger than those from richer homes.
On average, children born in the poorest areas will die 13 years before those in the richest.
Five-year-olds from well-off homes have a vocabulary that is almost twice as wide as those from the poorest homes and are 30 per cent less likely to have problem behaviour.
The richest 10 per cent of families have assets worth an average £853,000 - almost 100 times the £8,800 average wealth of the poorest 10 per cent.

Because they invest in the NHS

Labour has spent £269 billion more on health than if they had kept funding at 1997 levels.
Of 1.3 million staff only 680,00 are medical professionals (2007)
GP salaries increased by 58% from 2003 to 2008

NHS output in terms of operations, consultations, drugs and fewer deaths has risen by half between 1995 and 2006 but the annual budget over the same period more than doubled from £39 billion to £89.7 billion.
This means productivity fell by an average of one per cent a year.
The steepest drops occurred between 2001 and 2005 when productivity fell by two per cent a year, corresponding with the largest increases in funding under Labour
