  1. I see Nigel Dawkins, on his recent leaflet, wants to ‘bring back hanging’. I don’t believe in Capital Punishment!

  2. Please. Please. Please vote for Mary today to keep the delightful Mr Dawkins out.

    The rhetoric and negativity of the leaflets we have had is unbelievable. He has bordered on slander in what they said about Phil Walking. The poor guy was seriously ill and making political capital out of his illness sums up these people.

    And just remember that its the Central Tory Government have made massive disproportionate cuts to the funding of Birmingham Council while giving the likes of Hertfordshire and parts of Oxford increases.
    Ask yourself whether the Tories have our (the little men and women of this country) best interests at heart. Or is ‘Austerity’ an idealogical attack on the very structures of the country designed to look after you and me.
