THE PROSPECTIVE parliamentary candidate for Thurrock, Polly Billington, has spoken to BBC’s Newsnight over what are the concerns and for voters in Thurrock.
Polly was speaking to reporter, Allegra Stratton at the Labour Party Conference. The issue debated was whether Labour needed to focus on people who “owned or aspired to own a conservatory.”
But Polly told the BBC that Thurrock residents had other pressing needs just now.
Polly said: “People are anxious about their prospects. It isn’t about two holidays or jobs. It is about whether I will have my job next year or not.
“You don’t have to be in a council house to be struggling.”
Polly has been joined by a host of Thurrock politicians who have attended the conference including Mike Le Surf, Barbara Rice, Angie Gaywood and Lynn Worrall.
