IT’S a big deal that the Prime Minister has visited our town, but I’m sure readers of all political views (and none) were amazed that David Cameron came here empty-handed.

The Tory PM had nothing to offer on the issues that matter: Problems accessing GPs; hospital under pressure; new road tolls coming in for Warrington drivers on the Mersey bridges at Runcorn; traffic chaos because of the Ship Canal swing bridges closing so often; a sluggish economy with too many people still out of work, or not able to work as many hours as they need, or working very hard but not getting a fair wage.

If anything, Mr Cameron’s visit just reminds people of his broken promises on the economy, the NHS and education funding, and of the massive Tory tax breaks for millionaires – only a Labour Government will help every individual and family in Warrington to get on in life.

And Mr Cameron must be embarrassed that his ‘local’ Tory MP has admitted that he has moved out of Warrington, breaking his election pledge to live in this constituency. Yet another broken promise from the Tories.

Warrington people deserve much better than this. The choice at the General Election is five more years of Tory Government or a fresh start with a One Nation Labour Government that is on your side and supports the ambitions of our town.

What an absolute load of rubbish....and this man wants to become Warrington South MP?....

Typical Labour attitude....politici
ans should always give us something.
That's the way the left operates ...it is always about 'giving'....never much about 'governing' which is what they are elected to do.
Labour always think that is the way to win votes to keep them elected....'vote for us and we will give you whatever you want'.

I don't get it Nick..

Atlantic Gateway has been on the agenda for years

Look here's the labour leader of WBC sat on the board..for years
http://www.atlanticg
ateway.co.uk/the-boa
rd

Look you can download the business plan for the project right here
http://www.atlanticg
ateway.co.uk/downloa
ds

Look it clearly states the creation of a 6 lane toll bridge and a revolution on the waterways between Liverpool and Manchester

There must have been council meeting after meeting about this project. How was it received in the early stages? Did anyone raise the issue about impact to businesses in Warrington South caused by a revolution on the waterways.

How many boats are we expecting to pass through each week in 2030 when the project is complete? This must have been discussed by the council following a meeting of the Atlantic Gateway board..attended by the labour leader of WBC

How was the idea of a toll bridge received during meetings held by WBC? If they were against the proposal how was their objection conveyed to the board of The Atlantic Gateway by the leader of WBC who is a board member at Atlantic Gateway

How is any of this the fault of David Cameron?

The author is absolutely correct until he asserts that Labour would be a better alternative. We've tried Labour and Conservative and they both produced the same results. Poor service for increased costs. Well done for displaying the apparent holes in the Tory pledges, but I do notice you've offered nothing on how the situations would improve. YOU ARE ALL THE SAME. Warrington residents are tired of petty ****. They want weekly bin collections, safer roads and streets as well as earning enough to live comfortably rather than payday to pay day. Neither party can offer these assurances and so I'd rather not see fingers being pointed and confirmation that promises were broken, offer some new ideas for us to contemplate.

I always say, if someone spends more time pulling apart the actions or ideas of others, they've nothing positive to say about themselves.
