I’m Backing Chris Because…

Edward Denmark“Chris backed the veterans, so I’m backing Chris”

Edward Denmark fought in the Falklands War and served in Northern Ireland: “I’ve seen what it does to people. That’s why Wirral Labour’s decision to cut back on help for veterans is so wrong and that’s why many of us were so grateful that Chris Blakeley backed us.

“Labour locally has the wrong priorities. They are cutting services while lending money to other councils.

I’m Backing Chris Because…

“I like the way the Town Hall never gets one over on Chris!”

Lucy Donnelly“I’m 99 years old and I remember when, after the war, we had Labour Councillors of real principle.  Now, all Labour seem to want is power and the trappings of power with the fancy staircases and the posh carpets in the Town Hall. Too many of the Councillors seem to have forgotten why they were elected.

“That’s why I’m voting for Chris Blakeley – he had the courage to stand up and speak out against the Councils outrageous plans to remove the ‘Pass for Life’ given as retirement gift to long serving employees.”

Vote Labour to put Birkenhead first or vote Conservative to put Wirral first

Wallasey & Moreton

Birkenhead First_editedIt’s your choice.

In six days, voters in Wirral will choose who they want to speak up for them in the Town Hall.  And, at this election, the choice couldn’t be clearer.

With less than a week to go, the Labour Leader of Wirral has finally confirmed what people in this community have known for years: it’s Birkenhead first while the rest of Wirral is a very poor second.

Speaking yesterday, Cllr. Phil Davies, outlined plans that will, once again, see money spent in the town, while the rest of the Wirral sees services, such as street lighting and Girtrell Court, cut.  The sign on the lectern as he addressed the audience says it all.

This is some of what the Labour Town Hall has planned for Birkenhead:

In today’s Globe: Town Hall reserves reach £108 million

Wallasey & Moreton

In today’s Wirral Globe, and ahead of the council elections next week, local Conservatives from across Wirral are highlighting the massive increase in the Town Hall’s cash reserves.

Judging by the response on the doorsteps, this is now a key issue for voters and one on which Jeremy Corbyn’s Labour candidates have, so far, remained silent.  The Globe has a readership of almost 140,000 people, in all parts of the Borough.

In a four-page special in the Globe, local Conservatives:

  • reveal how Wirral’s Labour Leadership has plans for the ‘cash in the bank’ to hit a record £108 million this year
  • list the 23 local Conservative candidates who are challenging Labour – the only Party that is challenging Labour in all seats
  • publish key points from our Plan for Wirral which follows thousands of doorstep conversations and surveys with residents
  • show why David Burgess-Joyce is the candidate with the most experience in…

Fire Station on Green Belt in Saughall Massie

IMG_2559It seems that Merseyside Fire and Rescue Service have, as yet, not been able to submit a planning application for their proposed new fire station on Green Belt land in Saughall Massie because they have to determine if there are any Great Crested Newts in the nearby pond!   However once they have carried out that survey they do intend to submit an application.   More information can be found in the email below:

As the proposed development site is within 200m of an established pond, we are required by law to carry out an ecological survey to establish, amongst other things, if any protected species (e.g. Great Crested Newts) are present & if they are, come up with an appropriate mitigation strategy to ensure they are not harmed during any works. Surveys can only be carried out at times when such species are active (i.e. not during the winter months) & consequently we were unable to proceed with the survey until the temperature improved sufficiently to allow this to take place. The survey is currently underway & we should have the results within the next few weeks. The survey findings, together with any mitigation strategy, need to be submitted as part of the planning application to Wirral Borough Council.

I hope this explains why no planning application has yet been submitted. I anticipate that the planning application will be made in the next few months although I cannot be more precise at present.

“When we had Labour councillors they let the shops rot. Without our Conservative councillors, the eyesore shops on Town Meadow would still be there.”

“I don’t agree with everything the Conservatives do but you have to hand it to them locally – they work hard, they work as a team and they keep in touch.”

“If it ain’t broke don’t fix it! I’m backing Chris Blakeley in the Council election.”
