PFI - now wasn't that something that kicked off during Conservative John Major's premiership? Pretty certain that it was. And from what I have a read it seems the civil servants who negotiated PFI deals with the private sector were out manoeuvred by the private sector negotiators. Wonder if history is about to repeat itself (Tories starting something off but not there not being the ...

So......I have still only had the one response back - from Cllr Wrigley.  I asked both him and Ms Morris about the photo and why a Lib Dem is shown in a Tory election leaflet.

I fear it isn't only Theresa May who has acted/is acting as if the British Empire still existed. I remember hearing people during the referendum debate say that  all the heavy industrial work of the Midlands/the North/South Wales has gone. Yes I would agree it has.

Like I said, I am giving the one who is yet to respond some time in order to do so. If I haven't heard anything back by,say, approx this time tomorrow I'll just post the one response that I got back.

"when did anyone ever stick to there manifesto. At least i know the tories want closed borders and no free movement my vote this time is who will deliver a hard brexit, thats it nothing more nothing less".
