THURROCK Labour have welcomed the news regarding a General Election on June 8th.
Vice Chair Lee Watson said “We are ready to fight this election. Thurrock has had to put up with seven years of Tory neglect. We have seen Children’s Centres closed, the Grays walk-in centre closed, vulnerable elderly residents hit with a new charge of up to £780 per year to live in sheltered housing. All the while, our Tory MP completely refuses to stand up for her constituents on any of the big issues such as the new Thames Crossing.
“It’s time to have an MP that represents Thurrock in Westminster, not one that represents Westminster in Thurrock. The only way we’ll get that is with Labour.
“Our campaign is already underway. We will be talking to residents and campaigning for a better, cleaner and safer Thurrock than the one we’ve got under the Tories.”
like a turkey looking forward to Christmas.
