Some of you are aware that I am standing in Nottingham at the General Election. It is a privilege to stand as a Conservative anywhere - but if there is one thing I have learned from being involved in Nottingham, it is how much the Labour Party has failed. Year after year of Labour Government rule has done nothing, not just for Fenland, but also for the people that Labour claim to stand up for and represent the most - those in their heartlands. There is no doubt about it, they have failed and they are still failing, both at a National and a local level. In Nottingham I see a Labour run Council that is failing, is totally unresponsive and local MPs that fail to stand up for the people they represent. Do you want that for North East Cambridgeshire?
The next alternative is the Liberal Democrats. If you support mass immigration, incentivising illegal immigration, threatening our long-term security by scrapping trident and joining the Euro, then they are the party for you. I suspect you don't - in which case don't vote Lib Dem.
In North East Cambridgeshire we are lucky to have had the benefit of Conservative control for a number of years, and it has led to huge benefits - including Councils with good and growing reputations and Councillors that really will fight for your best interests, despite the funding barriers that have been put in our way. We also have a Parliamentary Candidate in Stephen Barclay who has been committed to this area for longer than any other candidate and who has stood up for us in a number of ways - in Whittlesey he has been at the centre of our plans to get more trains to stop at the Station, has been active in trying to sort out our drainage problems and has been supportive of our campaign to stop development on Feldale Fields.
I am absolutely convinced that Stephen Barclay is the best man for Whittlesey and North East Cambridgeshire and I would urge you to recognise that, of all the candidates, it is he and he alone who has stood up for Whittlesey's best interests over the last few years.
If you want a better Whittlesey and/or a better North East Cambridgeshire vote Conservative.
