Sorry for starting a new thread, but we must re-elect Chris.

The Tories are parachuting someone in from London, who no doubt, if elected would not care for Chester like all his Tory predecessors.

Chris is a true Blue and is local. He understands how the nasty party works and wants to work to halt the Tories destroying the NHS, eroding workers rights, corruption, starving education of funding. The list goes on.

If you don't normally vote, vote now for Chris.

Totally agree Shunter. Chris is an excellent local MP. It is looking likely that New Ukip, the Tory party, are going to win the election with an increased majority, so unless the country comes to its senses, the Chester vote will make little national difference, its impact will be solely local.

Issues that matter in Chester include Fracking, this environmental disaster in waiting theatens OUR city and its environs, our local council can do little to protect us, as the overruling of a planning rejection in Lancashire proves, Labour are pledged to ban it across the UK.

The NHS; with the very future of the Countess under threat of relocation, added to the well known tactic of starve a public service of cash, point to the failures, while denying the real cause, then use them as an argument to invite in US health companies to carve it up for profit, to financialise the UKs greatest institution. Cui bono? The 1%! You can be certain that it wont be the 99% that is for sure.

Then there is Brexit, Chester was a remain city, and many of us who voted Leave wanted a hard nosed economically realist Brexit that escapes from the neolib treaties, and investor protection 'trade' treaties, TTIP and CETA, BUT not to throw the baby out with the bathwater. We are leaving the Customs Union, for what? A WTO la la land utopia of trade deals around the globe. People should read what happened to Switzerland when it attempted to do a trade deal with China, it got strong armed. This is what Britain will face!

''The UK should focus on signing comprehensive and fair deals. In the China-Switzerland trade deal, as the much
bigger partner, China has set the terms of trade. It is allowed more time to remove tariffs on Swiss goods –up to 15 years in some cases –than the Swiss, who have to let in Chinese goods tariff-free almost immediately. It is also limited in scope; it does not cover cars or financial services –two major export areas for the UK.'' http://www.cbi.org.uk/business-issues/uk-a...rade-deals-pdf/

It makes me ashamed to be British when I see the way people have rushed to the hard Brexit barracades following the contrived 'row' between May and Junker, followed by the unnamed sources that claim the UK will face a large exit payment of up to 100 billion Euros, all pure speculation. But it has worked as intended, the people have been duped, and I believe the EU are in on it, they are in the pockets of corporations to the same degree as the Tories. The atmosphere reminds me of the overnight change in public opinion in 1983 after the Falklands War, but far worse. This xenophobic bile came from a small and unverified spat! Opinion polls were moving against May and her sloganised and cowardly campaign, then the 'row' and the nation goes mad.

Locally and nationally everybody who is not a Tory or Ukip supporter MUST understand, Labour, New Labour, Lib Dem, Green, PC, SNP that they have to put aside tribal differences and vote for the candidate most likely to keep the Tories out. Hard Brexit will be a catastrophe, and a large Tory majority, Brexit aside, will be a government that will continue to enrich the corporate 1% further at the expense of the majority, it will stick with its extend and pretend economic policy, the 2008 was a blip mentality, in denial ..until the whole near zero interst rate debt roll over ponzi scheme collapses as it surely will, we just cannot predict when. I genuinely fear for our futures should the local election results pan out in the general election.

We can only act locally as individuals , and hope the majority see the light.
