A Big Thank You from James Laing

James Laing

Thanks for the opportunity to speak to your readers.

First of all I would like to thank all those who went out last Thursday and voted Labour, you helped achieve the first swing to Labour in Eddisbury since the last century.

However, I'm obviously disappointed that Labour was not able to connect with enough voters nationally to be able to form a government.

I would also like to thank the residents of Tarvin for their warm welcome when I held the first public meeting of my campaign there in March.

The new Conservative Government is presenting itself as the representatives of "working people" and I'm sure the Labour Party will hold them to that, supporting where it's true and opposing where it's not.
There will also be a referendum on Europe now, and I would urge everybody to listen to the arguments for our continued membership. Europe needs reform and I want the UK to be a strong voice for that reform, working with our allies to ensure Europe is improved for all member states.

Finally, I would urge those who have the confidence and ability to be spokespeople for their community to consider joining the Labour Party. This is especially true as Cheshire West and Chester Council for the first time has a Labour Administration and will need Tarvin residents to be both representatives and a conduit to ensure your voice is heard.
