‘Dont waste your vote’

Have your say

With reference to W Quinn’s letter, need party to work for us, we are all entitled to our opinions, but I need to jog his memory regarding the last Labour Government’s financial situation under Gordon Brown and Tony Blair.

When the Labour Party was defeated in 2010, the then chief secretary to the Treasury under Brown, Liam Byrne, left a note for his successor that proved to be a gift for the Tories when he said “I’m afraid there is no money”. What does that tell you bout how the Labour Party ran its finances and economy.

Tony Blair left the party a very wealthy man, with properties it seems all over the world,a nd now a multi-millionaire. Is this just a coincidence?

Jeremy Corbyn was never and still not 100% behind Brexit. He is not and never will be able to get the UK a good deal. John McDonnell is forever changing his mind on what is best for our economy, perhaps it’s his Marxist values.

Dianne Abbott, Shadow Home Secretary, was clueless when it came to explaining the need for extra policing. Angela Rayner the Labour Party Education Spokesperson demands that we need more teachers, but doesn’t know how many –and this lot are looking to run the country?

The good people of Sunderland voted to leave the EU, not the Labour Party, ask your three Local Labour MPs

The MPs would be better off trying to persuade Sunderland Council, which has ruined canny old Sunderland for the last 40 years, to clean up the city and spend our council tax wisely in our bid for the City of Culture.

Don’t waste your vote.

Tom Brown
