Tory woes continue as latest polls show Harlow would fall to Labour

News / Thu 29th Sep 2022 at 05:25pm

THE CONSERVATIVE Party’s woes continue as a number of polls released today show that the Labour Party would have a massive majority if a General Election was held today.

Polling have been released as the Prime Minister and her Chancellor, Kwasi Kwarteng come under fire for their mini-budget which has had a number of major economic ramifications.

As one BBC journalist said to the PM in a series of underwhelming interviews this morning. “Last week, people were worried about heating their homes. This week, they are worried about keeping their homes”.

The latest poll has Labour with a 33 point lead over the Conservatives.

If an election was held tomorrow, this could mean that Harlow MP Robert Halfon would lose his seat.

At present, he has a 14,000 majority.

Harlow was held by Labour between 1974 and 1983 and then 1997 and 2010.

Harlow Labour has yet to select a candidate to fight the next General Election. YH understands that may not happen until early next year.

Most political pundits belIeve a General Election won’t be held until May 2024 however, who knows. A week, they say, is a long time in politics.

There are also a number of ways to interpret polls.

We need an independent not more professional politicians. I do think Rob will go at the next election however.

Does Mr. Halfon still think we should give Liz a chance then?

Tom calm down: Remember Mr. Halfon works hard for Harlow and its residents. So if your home was on fire he would come round and generously pee on it. Sadly he would have to because we wouldn't have a fire service worthy of the name under his government. I also hope he has first aid skills because A and E would be closed. But would that be enough to save you and your home? I suspect not!

We need a honest conversation as it now very clear Harlow won’t be receiving monies promised by the local MP to fund the new PAH site.He can try and blame everyone else which he often does. He was wrong to promise something he knew at the time was incorrect. The MP should own this and fully accept he deliberately mislead the hard working dedicated NHS staff .his own party and our community. Harlow deserves better. We need a new health campus, make do won’t do.

Fully agree and support Cllr Tony Durcan's statement: "We need a new health campus, make do won’t do." Also, Public Health England were meant to move to Harlow thanks to Robert Halfon. Now it is just a target for window smashers.

Labour don't even have a candidate in place, I suspect because they had no expectation of winning back Harlow. Unfortunately, I have very mixed opinions over Robert Halfon, on some aspects, such as training and education, he does very well, on others, such as economics, I find him very woolly and inconsistent. So who to vote for will be very difficult.

Vote for Pedro. He will make all your dreams come true.

Regardless of whatever opinion polling people must not be complacent and must go out to vote for their party of choice (or in their opinion, the least worse).
