We’ve known for a long time that local elections in Walkden South are a clear choice between local Conservatives and the Labour Party. The same goes for Parliamentary elections here in the Worsley & Eccles South constituency.
A vote for a fringe party just lets Labour back in, and that’s not in Walkden’s interest either in the Commons or the Council Chamber. This week’s news that St George’s may close after all is a stark reminder of how little the Salford Labour Party listen to local residents in Walkden and the surrounding area.
Last week, UKIP made that choice even clearer – they’d seek to back a Labour Government. A vote for UKIP just helps Labour. Don’t take my word for it, just ask Nigel Farage himself!
The only way to keep Labour out in Walkden and Salford is to vote for your hard-working local Conservatives.
