Harlow Alliance Party: Seven reasons for not voting Labour….

Politics / Sat 3rd Mar 2018 at 04:57pm

Dear Editor,

With the upcoming By-Election in Little Parndon and Hare Street, I would give seven reasons for not voting Labour and indeed some of them can be used if one was to draw up a list for not voting for the conservatives either;

1. Agreeing with Epping Forest District Council’s plan to allow thousands of homes to be built on Harlow’s boundary without any consultation with Harlow residents.

2. Failure to produce Harlow Council’s plan for future house building in the town and the lack of consultation with residents.

3. Agreeing plans for the redevelopment of the town centre which will clearly have a detrimental effect on the rest of the town centre.

4. Allowing the YMCA building to stand empty for some 17 years at a time that rough sleeping and homelessness is on the increase.

5. The same goes for Occasio House, how long will this remain empty?

6. The lack of repair and decoration to Harlow Council’s housing stock.

7. Failure to produce a long term plan for the future of Pets Corner and the Playhouse.

In no particular order, Interesting how Occasio House was owned by East Thames Housing, Labour Members supported petition to stop it shutting (our very own Jake Shepherd, prospective Councillor for Church Langley) decision was made by Essex County Council reference funding, so this is every reason that residents should vote for Labour at the bi election, Chris Vince is your man! YMCA owned by Circle Housing! There was widespread consultation reference the Town Centre. Harlow has also delivered successful budget, made saving by returning Kier Contract to HTC to benefit residents and with savings keep other services open. Clearly it is easier for the author to sit at a computer and deliver poor press releases than it is to be pounding the streets regardless of the weather. Again, Chris Vince is the best candidate for a Little Parndon and Hare Street.

Whilst I am all for plurality and believe that having more local parties is a good thing for our democracy, according to the electoral commission you were registered on the 22/08/2017... That's nearly seven months ago, don't you think residents might be dissuaded that a new local party for local issues hasn't really done much around the local community, and has only decided to step out the shadows on the run-up to an election? Harlow Young Labour for example was started similarly by a group of local people in August 2017, and they've organised community litter picks, community basketball tournaments, a walking football tournament a live mic-night.... If you want to know the real party which works for local people and their interests... then without a shadow of a doubt it is Harlow Labour Party.

Still blathering on about nothing. What's wrong with a new party canvassing ? I'm certain that they have more acumen and expertise than the schoolboy who still fails to answer questions about strike action by teachers, railways etc. V L at your PERIL. As for Young Labour....... they're showing their solidarity without achieving anything. How many volunteers to litter pick ? Not even double figures. VoteLabour at your PERIL. By the way, any news about Clempner and the back stabbers. The ides are upon us.

This is the lowest form of campaigning. Just sling mud at your opponents and hope it puts people off. It shows utter contempt for the voters!!! This is the second expressly anti labour article on here during the build up to Thursday- we should be demanding parties sell themselves on their policies not by trying to tarnish their opponents. There’s enough negativity in our politics as it is- we don’t need any more. Tell us your policy ideas and let people decide for themselves.

Firstly, not all parties have the same financial backing or man power, so need to use the media effectively. Secondly you'll see the UKIP article does state UKIP policy. And thirdly, isn't it funny how Labour rush to moan about press bias every time someone has a different view to them. Those who throw stones, shouldn't moan when they get some thrown back!

If Jake S wants to stick his nose into local politics he should be held accountable on his hidden opinions. He cannot answer any questions put to him, he seems adequate on plagiarising quoted facts and figures that take his fancy, regarding the socialist way of thinking. And as for selling policies, haven't labour already done that, students, railways, and the economy. PFI etc. Borrow and spend. VOTE LABOUR at your PERIL.
