Chorlton Mares: John Leech is Not Local Enough To Be Our MP


Mr Leech has never lived in the council ward he represented until recently. A car drive away he was. And he's never lived in the parliamentary constituency he seeks to represent. Another case of a car drive. No wonder he's to quote the Mail - fat and unfit! #bants. He's pretended he lives in our area. Oh yes. And he's even sent out a press release - taken up by his somethingly biased local newspaper - saying he was about to move "back" into the constituency. He did live here for a year or so to be fair. But the move story - more than two years ago now - was a complete con. It didn't come close to happening. He's not even been marketing his house most of that time.

Yet, extraordinary as it may seem, Leech has just launched an eleventh hour attack on the localness of one of Labour's council candidates.

What a plonker! Funnily enough his candidate - whose parents live in the ward in question - has been a student far far away throughout the campaign. Where you're wondering? In Salford perhaps? Preston? Keele? Oh no! His local "Chorlton" candidate has been a student in LONDON throughout the campaign. And the photo opportunities frenzy and little else that passed for a back story of "work" before that.

Leech actually lies and says his boy WORKS in the area. He's a sodding student Leechy. In London. Though he makes a bloody great mess with his pizza boxes in our area when he's home for Christmas. Do get a grip.

Our candidate lives all of a couple of miles away and may yet move in this direction. Though for the moment Leech is attacking a single mum with four kids. Local schools and childcare to sort out. But with a lovely extended family based in our ward.

Meanwhile voters who want a candidate who lives in Manchester Withington constituency must take Leechy the Hospital Hoaxer at his word and off your list. Just like our council candidate Amina Lone .. Mr Leech lives in neighbouring Gorton Constituency!

Let's hope not. he's not local and never has been. No conscious Libdemologist can possibly vote for him.

What like Amina Lone Chris? Local, like my map? Shocked to see Sheila Newman supporting Lib Dems, amazed that 'Gentleman Jim' GAVE AWAY £421,000, ashamed at the the ton of bricks that Amesbury threatened to drop on students and think Labour's campaign here in Manchester has been awful! Lucy Powell is dreadful and will lose.

To be fair Leech lived in a coven of Lib Dem youth in M21 in the early days as a career politician. before the lunkheard lurcher Norman Lewis took him under his wing to be - what's the expression? - a career politican. For goodness sake John, as someone who has stood in countless elections and been a cllr and a cllr and MP at the same time and then a useless MP what the hell are you doing calling a young mum standing for the very first time a career politician. You suck.

No wonder Leech is running such a nasty smudgy negative campaign if drunkagain Hennigan is involved. He should concentrate on getting cousin James on the council for more drunken fun in the members'room. We've missed drunkagain we really have.

The people of Withington rejected your parties 5 year campaign of lies, smears and nastiness against hard working and honest John Leech.

You have been defeated - now apologies for all your nastiness against the best MP Withington has ever had!
