Mark Menzies poll
pamphlet ‘offensive’

It is with great anger and frustration that I received a mail shot from the local Conservative candidate in the constituency of Fylde, Mark Menzies, telling me that supporters of Jeremy Corbyn have “spent their lives campaigning to dismantle HM armed forces” and “BAE Systems is the biggest employer in the Fylde and its very existence is threatened by Jeremy Corbyn’s Labour party”.

PLAY-OFF

This is the time to back Blackpool

What a great achievement by Gary Bowyer and his Blackpool team to get to the Wembley play-off final, despite all the off-field problems. What a boost for the whole town and a day for celebration and support by all who have “The Pool” as their team.

A European Union flag in front of the Palace of Westminster. Parliament must be able to scrutinise the Brexit process and be given the final say over any treaties covering the new relationship between the UK and European Union, peers have said. PRESS ASSOCIATION Photo. Issue date: Friday July 22, 2016. A House of Lords committee said the success or failure of the talks between the UK and the EU will have "profound and lasting implications" for the nation and it is "inconceivable" that there should not be parliamentary oversight.

Far worse than scrapping free milk

In Blackpool over many years we have seen increasing levels of poverty still rising, making Blackpool one of the most deprived towns in the country. Living standards are set to fall but for Blackpool with over 50 per cent of children living in poverty, through low wages and unemployment, I begin to despair at the policies of the government that continue cutting budgets in the public sector, meaning lowering wages more and loss of jobs.

It hurts but gateway area is a dump

Having seen Coun Jackson’s comments in The Gazette that the Talbot Gateway development “has brought 1,000 people into the town centre to rejuvenate the area”, it makes me wonder when was the last time he actually got out of his car and walked down Talbot Road.
