This morning, along with the Leader of the Council, Cllr Jeff Green and my colleagues, Cllr Steve Williams, Cllr Ian Lewis and Steve Smith we joined up with around 500 others to march in support of saving the 342 jobs that are under threat at the Burtons site on Pasture Road.
I used to work at this site, both for Cadbury’s, and in G Block for Tulip International (formerly known as Jaka Foods), and I met my wife in the cakes department, so as well as living in Moreton, and being fortunate enough to be a Councillor for Moreton and Saughall Massie I have a long association and affinity with this site, and will do all I can to help save these jobs and protect this site as a manufacturing site.
I was though, disappointed with the behaviour of a few of the marchers who verbally attacked us calling us scum and chanting Tories off the March. These are clearly quite sad moronic individuals who had obviously lost site of why we were there. This is not about party politics, it is about coming together and showing unity to try to save these jobs. I suppose as they grow up they will learn!
