With just over two weeks to go before the election, the campaigns are being stepped up in Harrow.
Yesterday Chancellor Alistair Darling paid a visit to Rayners Lane, telling the crowd that Labour’s record on employment would keep customers spending in local businesses, and defending the proposed rise in National Insurance.
Meanwhile Mayor Boris Johnson went on the attack as he visited Harrow, appealing for a “long period of silence” from Tony McNulty, the incumbent Labour MP for Harrow East.
And in case anyone in Harrow West was thinking of jumping on the ‘I agree with Nick’ bandwagon and voting Lib Dem, Tory candidate Rachel Joyce offers up a reminder of what the party stand for.
“…to join the Euro, give even MORE powers to Europe, stop prison sentences for a significant proportion of quite serious crimes, and get rid of Britain’s nuclear deterrent.”
Joyce is herself a former Lib Dem member, but there is obviously no love lost between the two.
Today was the final deadline for candidates standing in next month’s election.
