Following the announcement that the General Election has been called for May 6th, Conservative Party Candidate Andrew Griffiths said,
“At last people will have a chance to get rid of this tired old government and vote for a positive change for Burton and for Britain. Local people have suffered badly, with unemployment trebling in just over 2 years. I think local people realise we just can’t carry on like this, and that we desperately need real change.
“This is the most important election for a generation and it comes down to this: you don’t have to put up with another five years of Gordon Brown. People have a choice between Gordon Brown’s recipe for even greater debt and ever higher taxes, or an MP and a party with the experience, the energy and the ideas to get our country moving again. We will tackle the debt and deliver lower taxes for local businesses and working people. I know we can have a brighter future for Burton and Uttoxeter, we just have to vote for it.”
