#LabourDoorstep – Simmondley with Tameside Labour

Today saw a whole lot of Tamside Labour friends come over into Glossopdale to help out with a doorknocking session in Simmondley despite the horrible weather. Which we greatly appreciate!!

2013.03.16 - Simmondley with Tameside Labour
Simmondley is traditionally a Tory ward – currently with two Tory Borough Councillors -but we found there was a lot of support for us. In the region of about 60:40 but more worryingly if you are a Tory that is as Cllr John Taylor (Deputy Leader of Tameside Council) pointed out “today’s canvass clearly shows the traditional Tory voters deserting the party in droves, with UKIP picking up many of them”.
It was also commented upon – and appreciated – that we were the only party doing anything in the area with this canvassing session being or third/fourth return to the area in the last 6 months.
