Thank you to everyone who has put their faith and trust in me. I am delighted, honoured and privileged to be elected to serve for a fifth consecutive term in Moreton and Saughall Massie. Be assured that I will continue to do my very best for you all.
I am also delighted that the voters of Moreton and Saughall Massie soundly rejected Labours dirty tactics campaign, with their onslaught of personal attacks on me questioning my commitment, honesty and integrity. The Labour campaign was one of, if not the dirtiest campaign I have ever seen in any ward or constituency throughout the UK. Here in Moreton and the Wallasey Constituency the Labour Party have shown themselves up for what they really are! Anyway enough of them.

“As a local trader, I want to see Moreton do well and that means sometimes we need the support of the Council.
Chris has been a big help to us. He keeps in touch and we see him out and about across the area all the time.”

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

Sums up the choice clearly. On Thursday May 5th here in Moreton and Saughall Massie in the local elections it’s a choice between re-electing ME or Jeremy Corbyns candidate.
