Are you as fed up with it as I am? This statement by the Conservatives that the Labour Party thinks there is a “Magic Money Tree” to pay for all their plans?
Their argument is: “How can we afford a Labour government.”
My response would be: “How can we afford another Tory government?”
This is the party who has DOUBLED the national debt while slashing public services.
How is the economy safe in their hands?
If Hemel Hempstead elects Mike Penning again, and a Tory government nationally, we are going to have to pay plenty. Make no mistake about that.
We’ve already seen what the effects can be of the Tories cutting police numbers by 20,000 over the last seven years.
And for two of those years it was happening while Mr Penning was Minister for Policing.
Here in Hemel the effects have been felt with the police station downgraded.
Mr Penning prides himself on being a minister and close to Theresa May but he just seems to do her bidding in Westminster.
It doesn’t end there. We have lost our court. All this from the supposed party of law and order.
What else? Well, where do we start?
Failed promises on the hospital… the closure of three schools… failure to rebuild the Pavilion… social housing sold off amid bungled town regeneration.
Go to the hustings in Hemel, or a Question Time, and you won’t hear Mike Penning talking about all this, or about the cuts and downgrading.
You’ll just hear vague generalities. You won’t hear facts and figures, like Labour have provided in their manifesto.
It is because the Tories know if they really spell out what they are going to do after the election, you won’t vote for them.
Think about whether you want more of those cuts and downgrading over the next five years. And higher taxes on the lower paid.
It’s time you had an MP that was Hemel Hempstead’s representative at Westminster – not the other way round.
So vote Mandi Tattershall for a better town and surrounding villages and vote Labour for a better, fairer country.
