The news that Labour has pledged to give Blackpool residents free access to attractions in the resort if re-elected has come under fire from both the Tory opposition and readers alike.
Tony Williams, leader of the Conservative group in the town, has warned that the promise was “potentially contravening election regulations” and questioned how it could be funded.
He said people would rather money was spent on essential services “than a free go on a ghost train”, and many of you agree.
Here are just some of your comments:
"Typical labour, free stuff for everyone. Except that nothing is free, someone, somewhere is paying for it."
"Labour can offer whatever it likes, I still won't vote for them."
"Why all of a sudden can they make this offer now when it was never available before; is my question."
"It's not their money to give away!"
"Remain or leave democracies DEAD won't vote for any of the mainstream parties."
"The inept bumbling administration of Blackpool Labour shoots itself in the foot yet again. Mr. Williams is quite right to call them to account over farcical promises that may well actually be illegal. Neither party will have my vote after the Brexit Fiasco though."
"Typical of Blackburn ! And Labour ..Insulting our Intelligence. As ifffff!!!!"
"Ghost train? Wasn't it the Tory run council which originally splurged 300k on that really, really unsuccessful venture?"
"We are not bothered about free attractions just do your jobs and tidy the place up."
"Rewards for votes."
