Wefare Vote in Parliament – My letter to the Champion newspaper

Dear Sir,

I suspect that I am not the only elector in the Sefton Central Constituency who is livid that my MP abstained in the vote over the Tories Welfare Bill.

Voters in Southport and Bootle Constituencies on the other hand can be happy that their MP’s voted against what I see as an attack on the poorest in our society.

Yours sincerely

Tony Robertson

Tim Farron – Don’t bleed the poor


This is powerful but very clear message. You will notice which Labour Party leadership contender is missing from their line up i.e Jeremy Corbyn as he voted, like our local MP’s John Pugh (Lib Dem) and Peter Dowd (Lab), against the Conservative’s Welfare Bill.
