General Election 24: Labour candidate reflects on second busy week of campaigning

Elections / Thu 6th Jun 2024 at 10:59am

THE LABOUR candidate for the General Election has reflected on the second week of campaigning.

Chris Vince said: “It is now two weeks since the PM announced the General Election for the 4th of July and once again it has been another busy week for Harlow Labour Party.

Last Thursday we spent time listening to residents in the villages, Lower Nazeing, Roydon and Dobbs Weir. I am keen to be an MP who represents all of the constituency.

Over the weekend we continued to campaign in Church Langley, Little Parndon and Great Parndon and were out listening to residents across the Constituency including in Hatfield Heath.

We also received a visit from the deputy leader of the Labour Party Angela Rayner, showing once again Labour’s unwavering commitment to the Harlow constituency.

As your MP I will continue to lobby the next Labour government to ensure Harlow get’s the investment it deserves. Every time Keir Starmer or a shadow cabinet minister has visited Harlow I have lobbied them for our new hospital, and it’s worked. 

Labour announced on Monday that they are committed to building a new hospital for Harlow, something the Conservative’s have promised yet failed to deliver time and time again.

On Monday we were joined by Maria Eagles, first for a trip to Raytheon as part of Labour’s commitment on national security, and then calling on residents in Hare Street.

Yesterday (Tuesday) we were back out in Potter Street listening to residents, even knocking on the door of a prominent local journalist.

Since the election was called, we have spoken to thousands of residents across the constituency and I look forward to meeting many more of you between now and July the 4th, showing that I will be an MP who will work incredibly hard for you all year round!

Today we commemorate the 80th anniversary of the D-Day landings. We remember all of the personnel involved in the operation that was a major turning point in the course of WW2. We honour the sacrifice of those who lost their lives on that day and we give thanks for the service, dedication and courage of all participants. We will remember them.

Details of all candidates are on our politics page.

In Potter Street? Looking for votes and voters? So what would they do for the voters in Potter Street? The answer is the same in decades: nothing!

Sorry, I can’t vote for someone who can’t even keep his shoes clean.

Chris,How will the New Hospital be funded?

Guy, that's got to be the most stupid reason not to vote. You're voting the policies & the party not the person and their shoes.

So Trace you would vote if a tramp stood . Perhaps even the raving loony party , Labour that is. Another £2000 tax bill , we will have to pay , I noticed Stamer did not say on TV the other evening they won't tax us another £2000

With all the public infrastructure that is underfunded, poorly maintained and literally falling apart where will Starmer get the money for new hospitals? Labour have said there will not be any more tax rises and have promised increased spending on defence up to 2.5 percent of GDP. Labour's figures don't add up and are essentially making it up as they go along. I'm sure Labour leader Sir Kid Starver will prioritize Harlow for goodies when Chris Vince badly let him down by failing to win control of Harlow Council.

No Trace, strictly speaking, you are voting for the person; the individual best suited to represent our constituency. We do not elect Prime Ministers or governments, we elect our representative to Parliament. Personally, I am less concerned with his attire than with his intellectual shortcomings for such a role as was shown at the recent local council hustings (Question Time) where Mr Vince's performance was dire and very unprepared. I am not impressed with either of the two main parties for the General Election and will vote solely on who is the best candidate to represent Harlow. It certainly isn't Mr Vince.

EDDIE dont be gullible about this £2000 nonsense its been denounced as lies, as total prefabricated figures.. The tories literally think people are idiots. The party of low tax has us paying the most tax in 77 years. Whilst the party of low dept, has us bankrupt.. Come on Eddie wake up and smell the coffee.. 🌹🌹🌹

Pete. Why didn't Starmer say that on the TV debate the other night when he had the chance. He looked uncomfortable when this was put to him. I don't drink coffee.

Also Pete , as I have said before , the Tories told us there would be a payback time after all the money was paid to people during furlough. People never complained when they were getting £2500 a month to sit on their arses all day . Now they are complaining about higher taxes to pay back the money. If you lent money to someone you would expect it back wouldn't you.
