After three days of this month-long election campaign, the choice facing the country is clear; five more years of Gordon Brown and his government’s waste, debt and failure, or David Cameron offering energy, change, and a fresh start.
It is clear from talking to voters in Halton and Weaver Vale this week, that many people are ready for that change.
It is also clear that politicians from all parties still have much work to do to regain the trust of the British people after the damage done to Parliament and politics in the last twelve months. There is still huge anger about the expenses crisis and great cynicism of politicians. I look forward to continuing my efforts to build trust with the people of Halton between now and polling day, and to present our plans to rebuild our broken politics to the people of Halton.
