Letter to Editor: I wont vote for a political party that is trying to lie to me

I RECENTLY received a postcard from the Conservative Party. I’m no expert about political matters but I know enough to spot a bald faced lie when I see one, and this postcard was covered in them.
The Conservatives claim they want to cut Council tax, yet most of my Council tax goes to Essex and, if I remember correctly, year after year its been the Conservatives who have increased Council tax the most.
The Conservatives are asking for my vote to get a new hospital in Harlow. I thought that decision had already been made and it was made by the government, with support from Harlow’s existing Labour Council.
The Conservatives claim they will repair the roads. Yet it is the Conservatives who have had the responsibility for road maintenance. If they need repairing, and they do, that is the fault of the Conservatives.
The Conservatives claim to be putting more bobbies on the beat. Yet it is the Conservatives who have slashed police numbers since they came to power in 2010.
I could go on, but I think I have probably made my point. I do know this. I won’t ever vote for a political party that is trying to lie to me, and that is exactly what I think Harlow’s Conservatives are doing.
