UKIP MEP Tim Aker has called on Thurrock MP Jackie Doyle-Price to apologise over a political leaflet that claimed she had "Stopped the new crossing"
Cllr Aker was a candidate for the General Election in 2015 and clearly feels very angry at what is seen by some as a "U-Turn" in the MP’s stance on the crossing.
Cllr Asker said: In October 2014 Jackie Doyle-Price posted on her Facebook page that she had ‘stopped (the) new crossing’.
"It is completely outrageous that JDP found it acceptable to lie to residents that she personally had stopped a new Thames Crossing.
"I call on her to release the communications with the government showing exactly where they stated the new crossing wasn’t going to happen or to come and apologise personally to all residents affected along the planned routes.
"JDP is exactly why people hate politicians, she has lied to residents purely for political gain, she never had any plans or ambitions to stop the crossing but only cared about getting re-elected as an MP."
