I had the great pleasure of enjoying the beautiful Spring sunshine in Enfield Town today whilst campaigning with my Conservative colleagues.
Enfield North Parliamentary Candidate Nick de Bois, Enfield Southgate MP David Burrowes and I were joined by Justine Greening – MP for Putney and Shadow Minister for London.
Justine gave a great interview to the local press at Chase Farm Hospital where she explained that May 6th was the last chance for Enfield residents to save the hospital by voting Conservative – the only way to prevent Labour’s planned downgraded of the A&E facilities there.
Afterwards, we went to Enfield Town where we spent some time outside Pearsons discussing the importance of preventing Gordon Brown’s Tax on Jobs (the government’s proposed National Insurance increase) and other ways in which a Conservative government will put in place the policies needed by Enfield’s small businesses.
I had a fascinating discussion with a lifelong Labour voter who conceded that – because he was very happy with the quality of services provided by Enfield’s Conservative Council – he would think twice before voting Labour as he doesn’t want a Labour council!
It reminded me how important this election is, and why us Enfield Conservatives are working so hard to ensure a Conservative victory on May 6th.
