CONSERVATIVE CANDIDATE CALLS ON BARROW AND FURNESS TO VOTE FOR CHANGE
Simon Fell, Conservative candidate for Barrow and Furness in the general election, today called on everyone who can to make sure their voice is heard by voting on Thursday, declaring “the stakes have never been higher”.
Speaking from outside his Ulverston home, Simon said: “This is the most important election facing the people of Barrow and Furness in generations. With Brexit negotiations kicking off in the next few days, national security more crucial than ever, and our local area in urgent need of better infrastructure and investment, voters need a Member of Parliament who will tirelessly fight their corner and make a visible, lasting difference to people’s lives.
“I am completely committed to, and passionate about, Barrow and Furness, and I am enormously optimistic about its future. I’ve met farmers, nurses, teachers, entrepreneurs, shipyard workers, shop owners, electricians, engineers and thousands of other hardworking people who are equally optimistic, and agree with me that Barrow now needs a change to turn that optimism into reality.
“We urgently need a local champion who can open doors, make deals and bring in the new ideas and investment that will boost our local economy and help our communities thrive. Every vote for me on Thursday will be a vote for a local candidate who understands and shares your priorities. A candidate who will put the best interests of Barrow and Furness at the heart of everything they do.
“It will also be a vote for a competent, stable government that is committed to Trident and to Barrow’s economy, confident and optimistic on Brexit, and with clear, costed plans to improve our schools, NHS and essential services. The alternative – Jeremy Corbyn as Prime Minister, Diane Abbott as Home Secretary, and a Labour defence review that will shut down Trident and decimate Barrow - is truly terrifying.
“The facts are clear and the stakes have never been higher. I urge everyone who can to consider the alternatives carefully and make sure they vote on Thursday “.
