A resident handed me a flyer this evening that Labour had delivered through her letterbox. Other than the bare details of Labour’s local and Mayoral candidates, there was not a single mention of the local area at all – just some spurious guff about national politics.
Of course, national policies matter, but our big local issues are far too important for Labour to ignore them completely. Whether it is high Council Tax, Burgess Farm, the Misguided Busway, our broken highways, our failing primary school admissions system, or improving Walkden town centre, Labour just aren’t listening.
We need local representatives who will put our area first, and that’s why I’ll be voting for Anne Broomhead and Karen Garrido tomorrow. I hope that local residents across Walkden South do the same.
Put Walkden first – vote Conservative.
