An Open Letter from the Prospective Parliamentary Candidate for Thurrock, Carl Morris
“THE WAITING is over and on 6 May, Thurrock, along with the rest of the country will have its chance to say who should govern … and there is a stark choice.
“The people of Thurrock and the people of our great nation have a clear choice.
“Here in Thurrock we have seen what the Tories means in the 21st century. It’s simple; the Tories have turned Thurrock into a laughing stock. Tory-run Thurrock has meant waste, poor services and a complete inability to understand or control council finances.
“Why should a Tory Government be different? Do we want our nation to go down the same road as Thurrock?
“I’m a local man and I’ve spent the past 20 and more years working to get the best possible deal for local people, many local people will know this – whatever their political persuasion.
“Locally, what do the Tories offer? Somebody who does not understand local people; somebody who does not comprehend local issues; even somebody who says our Green Belt is not sacrosanct!”
Carl says: “We all might have wanted the Government to have thrown up a barrier hoping the world-wide recession would pass us by. But that’s our hearts talking. Our heads know that it was the greedy bankers and their Tory friends in this country and across the globe put us in this position.
“This election will be about values. Labour has at its core, values of fairness and genuine concern for the ordinary people – people like you and me, people who go to work day in and day out, and people who want their Government to support their families through the difficult times and that’s exactly what Labour has done. The Tories priority of a tax cut for millionaires says everything about Tories values
“In the coming weeks we are all going to be inundated with sound-bites; with ‘policies’, and with television debates. It will be non-stop and there’s little doubt that come Thursday, May 6th we’re all going to be pretty fed up with it.
“All I ask is that the people of Thurrock look beyond the rhetoric. I ask that the voters of Thurrock ask themselves: Who is best for me, for my neighbours and for my friends and relatives?”
“We know what’s at risk with the election of a Tory Government and it’s not good for Thurrock. We also know a Labour administration will put the people first.
“The choice is yours.”
