Have your say

I don’t want to get bogged down in politics and the last Labour government but I would just remind you that Gordon Brown, with the backing of every member of Parliament, decided to put the full weight of the Treasury behind the unscrupulous bankers to ensure no one in this country lost their money and you can bet that David Cameron and his friends were very grateful.

I agree whole heartedly with Chris Kerry’s comment that we should be encouraging go-getters, and other wealth creators but what should be remembered is that we need the likes of Jo Rust to ensure that the people they employ are getting a living wage – enough to put a roof over their heads and food on the table plus other little luxuries like heating and lighting, that they have a proper contract of employment not some dodgy zero hours contract and get the holidays to which they are entitled.

That is why come the next election when you cast your vote think carefully how you use it.

Do you vote for those wanting to build a new house at Congham or live in the opulent village of Castle Rising or do you vote for some one who is concerned about you and your family and how you should be living.
