Did you vote? Does your vote mean that this excuse for a city will continue under the same management?
Does it mean that the complaints, the well-documented complaints, from the last several years about Sunderland will continue to be unanswered?
Sunderland can never rise again without changing local government that has brought this once-proud ‘town’ to its knees.
Walk around The Bridges. Look at the depressed and depressing people and then go to Eldon Square where the city-dwellers are animated, smiling and even, dare I say it, better dressed.
That is what a city should feel like. Did you vote? Are you ashamed?
