“This area has grown a lot over recent years. You can see it by the extra traffic on our roads. That’s why Chris’s work to see if a new station can be built really matters.
“He’s asked for our views, listened to our concerns and is pushing Merseytravel to act. We’ve seen a big investment in our railways. Let’s make sure Moreton doesn’t miss out.”

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 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.”

Over a week ago I wrote to the other three candidates who are standing for the Council Elections on May 5th in Moreton West and Saughall Massie asking them to join with me, and sign the ‘Clean Campaign Pledge’ by the deadline of Friday 15th April. More can be read on that by clicking HERE
As of writing this posting I have to report that disappointingly not one of the candidates, Labour, UKIP or Green Party have responded to my request to sign up to the pledge. You will have to draw your own conclusions as to why?
Here is the Clean Campaign Pledge:
1. To show by our actions that politics need not be a dirty game, but can be a clean and positive activity, engaged in genuinely for the good of all.
2. To tell the truth about what we stand for and have achieved, and about what others stand for and have achieved.
3. To refrain from personal attacks.
4. To make only honest and reasonable promises.
5. To ensure that our respective campaign teams abide by this pledge, whether in print or in conversation with residents
6. To fight a clean, positive and honest campaign around the issues that concern the people of this community
7. In particular, to be honest about public spending, and not to scaremonger in ways that may frighten the most vulnerable members of our society, such as children and elderly people.
