Ed Miliband lends support to Labour's Wythenshawe and Sale East by-election candidate

ED Miliband, leader of the Labour party, has lent his support to Labour’s candidate for Wythenshawe and Sale East (WSE) by-election.


Mr Miliband joined Mike Kane for a Q and A session with more than 300 members of the public at Wythenshawe Forum shopping centre on January 31.


Before taking questions, Mr Miliband and Mr Kane both paid tribute to Paul Goggins, who was the MP for WSE for 16 years before dying suddenly last month.


Mr Kane said: “Paul was one of the most decent, principled, kindest, most passionate people that our movement had and we shall miss him every day.”


Mr Miliband said: “He was an excellent public servant, he was our friend and I for one am going to miss him very strongly.”


The Labour leader said that a government led by him would repeal the bedroom tax, extend free childcare and defend the NHS.


Mr Kane said: “I'm delighted Ed Miliband was able to meet local people and pledge his support for my campaign to get a fair deal for Wythenshawe A&E.


“People across Wythenshawe and Sale demonstrated their concerns about the cost of living, the NHS and the bedroom tax.“


Mr Miliband described Mr Kane as an ‘inspirational’ candidate.


“People in the constituency said to me that Mike was right to ask questions about the future of their local A&E, what can be done about energy bills that only go up and childcare costs that are spiralling.


“A Labour Government is what this country needs.”


• The Wythenshawe and Sale East by-election will take place on February 13.

If the people of Wythenshawe and Sale are at all interested in helping their country, they must realise that to vote Labour would be to allow the EU to finish the job they started when Labour was last in power - to RUIN this country. Surely you realise that Labour is RIDDLED with Communists whose main aim is carry on with further immigration until the 'white British' are a very small minority, and the ordinary people will be governed by foreigners?
While the Libs are as devious and anti-British as Labour, the Tories do not have the gumption nor the desire to take us out of the EU, which, for those who really care, only leaves one sensible option - VOTE UKIP !!!

If any voters are STILL misguided enough to vote Labour after what they did to this country under Bair and Brown, it is a FACT that the flooding in the south of Britain is the responsibility of.........guess who? The present government? Well, yes, but only indirectly. The real reason is that it was
EU POLICY which was accepted by Labour. The whole story can be found by going to;

If that isn't enough to persuade you to get OUT OF THE EU by voting UKIP
then you are condoning their ruination of this country.
