Nick slams Tory counterpart over election arrogance

January 28, 2009

amberNick Perry, Lib Dem parliamentary campaigner for Hastings & Rye, has warned his Tory counterpart against electoral complacency.

In a recent news release on rail fare increases, the Tory parliamentary candidate referred to the mention of her name (by the Bexhill & Battle MP Greg Barker) in a parliamentary debate as a ‘surprise early entrance’ to the House of Commons.

Nick said, “I think Amber’s over-confidence about her election to Parliament is misplaced. Particularly when her Conservative colleagues have shown such a lack of talent in their response to the current economic crisis.

“As is the case on many issues, the Conservatives are following where the Liberal Democrats have led over opposition to rail fare increases in the South East. And as usual, they do not offer any solutions to the problem.

“The truth is that whilst the country is crying out for a change of Government, we cannot afford another Jacqui Lait here in Hastings & Rye.

“Amber may well come to regret the precociousness of her recent statement.”
