Calling Old Ashtonian

In a recent article in the Wigan Evening News a person who wished to remain anonymous, going under the name of Old Ashtonian put forward the proposition that Ashton does not get any money spent on it because there is only one Labour Councillor in the Ashton and Bryn area. ( There are six Councillors in Ashton and Bryn and I am the only Labour Councillor)

Several residents who read the article have contacted me with roughly the same message 'Well if that's the case let's get some more Labour Councillors into the area and we might get even more funding.'

In a letter to the paper I have asked Old Ashtonian to contact me to discuss this matter. My number is 736216

So Old Ashtonian believes his non-Labour councillor friends are unable to fight for Ashton? Pity they didn't tell us that when they stood for election.

I believe the persons comments are being mis-interpreted.
They should read : Ashton is suffering from lack cash injection because the residents had the audacity to vote labour out of one of its strong holds

If the ruling labour party are so undemocratic,bigotted,and nauseatingly vengeful, as to make all of us suffer from deliberate neglect then maybe its finally time to get rid of the lot of you..roll on next May.....
