Behind The Goals: Manifesto Destiny

Date: 3rd December 2019

 

After a LONG break, it’s the return of Behind The Goals! This episode is a topical one – looking forward to next week’s General Election and what the main political parties are promising to do if elected. To see their football and sport-related promises in context you can read their full manifestos online:

• Green Party: campaigns.greenparty.org.uk/manifesto/
• Conservatives: vote.conservatives.com/our-plan
• Labour: labour.org.uk/manifesto/
• Liberal Democrats: www.libdems.org.uk/plan
• SNP: www.snp.org/general-election-2019/
• Brexit Party: www.thebrexitparty.org/contract/
