Harlow Labour take their campaigning to Roydon as they appear to be getting an encouraging welcome in the villages

WE think the phrase “parking their tanks on their lawns” comes to mind. Over the past few months, we have seen Harlow Labour campaign in Sheering, Hatfield Heath, Church Langley, to name just a few areas that are clearly now battlegrounds for the General Election expected in 2024.
On Saturday afternoon, they pitched their tents on the green in Roydon.
You couldn’t help notice that car after car beeped their horns in support.
We may not be submitting those findings to Professor Sir John Curtice but it was worth noting.
We spoke to Labour’s parliamentary candidate Chris Vince about their campaigning in the villages part of the constituency.
We also spoke to Labour campaigner and Roydon resident, Alex Kyriacou about campaigning in the village and whether Labour can gain votes there?
No comments after 23 hours, so what does that say about the Labour Party in Harlow?
People have had enough of the Tories. Its time for a change.
Mark, what Labour? Who change their policies by the day. Just look at the farcical plans for independent schools: we will take away their charitable status (last Thursday). No we won't (Saturday). Starmer's flip flop indecision is not a plan.
It is right we examine Labour's performance before they form a Government. The well respected journalist Peter Oborne, author of 'The Assault on Truth', sheds light on how Labour has backtracked on its principles. See his evidence in this link https://youtu.be/mv7sZoQkkns?si=BxEz83deXxpcNqi_
No matter how bad you think the Tories are Keir Starmer is not the answer, If you want to know what life will be like under labour control look at Wales, worse NHS response times, Nonsense 20mph areas.
20 Miles speed zones in key areas saves life. Most residents in Harlow would welcome calmer traffic in the estates and near schools. Shame the Tories are against action that save life’s.
Reducing speed limits from 30mph to 20mph has "little impact" on road safety, according to a study from Queen’s University Belfast, Edinburgh University and the University of Cambridge.
Whether 20 mph or 30 mph is preferable, at least Pedro cites some credible research, whereas Alderman Durcan just shoots from the hip with no data or evidence to support his claims. So many regulations regarding traffic are little more than stealth taxes as we have seen in London with Labour's Congestion charge and ULEZ schemes.
James Leppard, had you embarked upon some credible research of your own you would have discovered that the ULEZ was initiated by one Boris Johnson who, further credible research reveals, is a Tory. The bleating about ULEZ by Tories is as disingenuous as the claims to have abolished nonexistent meat taxes and the requirements to have 7 types of bin.
James Griggs is correct that the initiative for the highly unpopular ULEZ emanated from the former Mayor, Boris Johnson. I opposed it then as I do now. However, it also true that Sadiq Khan actually implemented it, ahead of the original schedule. The recent Uxbridge by-election highlights it's unpopularity. It is a stealth tax by any other name. If Labour is elected at the next General Election (heaven forbid), we can probably expect many more in their cause of wokedom.
