Edward Timpson

Does the general election explain why Timpson changed his mind?

A bold claim but was it true Edward Timpson made a claim that “there are no budget cuts”, it is a bold claim, one that many people in Crewe and Nantwich see simply as untrue or disingenuous.

Edward Timpson claim there were no education cuts

The cameras were out, so was Edward Timpson

Lights, camera, action! Earlier today Crewe and Nantwich MP Edward Timpson took part in yet another photo opportunity in Nantwich.

Laura has my backing To lots of people a Labour Party member supporting Laura Smith, the Labour Party candidate may seem blindingly obvious. But this isn’t someone blindly supporting their own team. Laura has the qualities that people up and down the land are crying out for in an MP. She has lived in the area all her life, attended the local schools, colleges and university.

general election vote

A General Election looms.

The choice is simple, more of the same, a Tory government pushing a failed austerity plan or a country led by Labour investing in people and the nation. The Tory narrative. They are going to tell people that Labour wrecked the economy, that simply is not true, casino style gambling in the banking sector brought the whole fiscal system to the brink. It was a global financial crisis, plain and simple. They will tell you that the rescued
