newly adopted Prospective Conservative Candidate for Erith and Thamesmead
is already trying to convince us that she is an Erith girl born and bred
but doesn’t seem to have done her homework as well as she should.
If she had she might have discovered that the bunch of reprobates she calls her team wanted to sell the Erith Riverside she says is “stunning”. I suspect she has never been there before.
Quotation above is from Hansard. Teresa Pearce MP (Labour) raises issue of the sale of Erith Riverside in the House of Commons.
In 2010 the Conservative vote in E & T was more than 50% better than any election since 1997. The Labour vote was remarkably steady over that time. If Ms. Firth manages to do as well as her predecessor Colin Bloom and additionally decimates the Labour vote she will still lose by a good margin. Is setting decimation as a target an early admission of defeat? Perhaps a better team would be advisable. Nobody needs a team with Philip Read in it.
