General Election called for 6th May 2010

Prime Minister Gordon Brown has called the next General Election for 6th May 2010. Greenwich Conservatives Parliamentary Candidates David Gold (Eltham), Spencer Drury (Greenwich & Woolwich) and Colin Bloom (Erith & Thamesmead) will be standing for change on May 6th.

David Gold: “There is a huge choice in this election – one that affects the life of every man, woman and child. It’s a choice between five more years of Gordon Brown’s tired government making things worse. Or change with the Conservatives – who have the energy, leadership and values to get Britain moving again.”

This means that the general election will also be on the same day as the scheduled Greenwich Borough Council Elections, this is the first time that this has happened in a number of years.

Time for Change

After nearly forty years of Labour rule in Greenwich, local Conservatives think it is time for a change. Leader of Greenwich Conservatives Councillor Spencer Drury “Labour have forgotten why they want to control the Council. Over the last four years Labour Councillors have consistently looked after themselves, not Greenwich residents. There has been thousands of pounds spent on lying to the Olympics in Beijing, leasing a corporate box at the O2 and on self-publicity. They are even spending £50m on new Council offices. One Labour Councillor even spent a year in Australia. I don’t think Labour have any plans, they just don’t want to lose power. Conservatives want to improve Greenwich - it is packed with great places to live, fantastic history and green, open spaces and I know we have the vision to make it even better.”
