Tories need to lis­ten

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Your Telegraph -

JOHN Peach’s (pic­tured) nar­row vic­tory in Park Ward was most wel­come as the last thing we needed was an­other Labour coun­cil­lor.

How­ever, it’s ob­vi­ous to me that if there had been a UKIP can­di­date stand­ing, Mr Peach would have lost due to the “leach­ing” of sev­eral hun­dred votes from fed up Tory vot­ers, as seen in other con­stituen­cies around the coun­try.

If the Con- ser­va­tives wish to avoid fu­ture losses at Coun­cil and Na­tional level then they must sit up and take no­tice.

Tory vot­ers want tough ac­tion on Im­mi­gra­tion, Europe and crime.

Our MP al­ways talks a good talk be­fore elec­tions. De­spite all the prom­ises made two years ago, Peter­bor­ough is still suf­fer­ing from mass im­mi­gra­tion from East­ern Europe, over­crowded houses, schools and surg­eries and a gen­eral de­gen­er­a­tion in for­merly “nice” neigh­bour­hoods. If the Tories don’t pull their socks up and face the truth then they will be in for a very un­com­fort­able time at the next elec­tions.”
