Labour Deputy Leadership Election 1992
#18
Dame Oona Millar, speech in Glasgow for Angela Harvey – (2/2 hours, 0/2 hours remain)

Dame Oona Millar spoke before a crowd of Labour Party and trade union leaders across the Glasgow area on the deputy leadership election and why she backs Angela Harvey.

"Comrades, we have finally taken power in Westminster after thirteen years of witnessing Tory rule from southeast England wreck havoc on working people and their communities in Scotland and in Wales. We have won the ballot in the general election, and now we must win the ballot to set the direction within our new government. The direction I hope we seek – a socialist government and a fair economy – is within our reach. My dear friend, Angela Harvey, is a champion of that direction.

"Her leadership in this party will keep our policy focus on eliminating poverty and undoing the damages of the Thatcher government on our cities and our regions that she never cared about and sold to the highest bidder on private auction. Our public assets, our lives, are not for sale, and we will not accept this new capitalist myth that values private capital over the public good. I worry that without strong, socialist leadership at the highest level, this party will be pressured to turn towards the right. Give gentle acceptance to the idea that free markets are presumed good until proven evil. We have lived long enough and studied enough of human history to know that greed is not a virtue nor should it be championed like one in public policy.

"Angela's policy vision is clear and convincing. She has been an early advocate for a cap on runaway salaries for boardroom directors while working people live in poverty in this country. No one can be morally comfortable when there are hungry children in this country. No one should be able to pay away the pain of bearing witness to the social problems that unregulated markets and rampant privatisation bring for the most vulnerable in this society. We will cap pay at the highest levels to make sure that wages grow across the board: more money in every pocket, not just the manager's.

"She has also been clear on her vision for a stronger supply economy in this country. With market-managed supply chains, we have seen the prices of basic goods sky-rocket beyond affordability for working people. The proportion of profit margin within the retail price has crept higher and higher as you and me have to pay the piper just to get a loaf of bread and a bit of butter to spread on it! Angela has said she'll back a new Price Commission that monitors market health on your ability to feed your family, heat your home, and still put a bit into savings. This is a clear, achievable victory for working people in this country. With her as Deputy Leader of this party, we have a chance to make it a reality.

"I'm sure many of us know the song Bread and Roses. A fair number of us having sung it in the streets, too. Angela Harvey offers us bread we can afford to buy and the pride of wearing the socialist rose in this country once more. We cannot give up. I will not give up as long as my legs have strength in them and my lungs have air. I believe that we can have a fairer future: will you join me in not just dreaming but voting for that future, too? Will you vote for Angela Harvey, too? Thank you."
