Labour won the Maghull TC by-election held last Thursday but to paraphrase a long-standing and famous headline from a national paper that is never mentioned in polite company on Merseyside, ‘Was it the Aintree & Maghull Champion wot won it’ for Labour?
The evidence is significant due to the coverage the paper gave to the Labour candidate in the weeks up to the election. Photo’s and gushing reports were in a number of editions.
And I know I am not the only one to think this in the Maghull area and I understand such concerns are being raised in Formby too.
And yes, I have told the Champion what I think in case you are wondering.
