Conservative candidate hits back over copycat claim

0

WARRINGTON North Conservative Parliamentary candidate Wendy Maisey has hit back at former MP Helen Jones who had accused her of copying her policies.
Mrs Maisey said: “The continued personal attacks on me from Warrington Labour are becoming quite tiresome not just for me but for the people of Warrington.
“I would rather be knocking on doors listening to the views and concerns of residents across Warrington North, which is why I was surprised to read these comments from Helen Jones who ceased to be an MP at midnight on Tuesday.
“She has however chosen to ignore or comment on my pledge to ‘get Brexit done’ which is on my list of priorities thus making a complete mockery of her statement.”
Ms Jones, who announced her retirement as an MP at the end of October, had accused the Conservatives of copying policies she had been pursuing for years.
“Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery,” she said.
But Mrs Maisey retorted: “Surely, rather than attacking me and the Conservatives, the Labour party might be better using their time explaining to Labour members and voters in Warrington why they have selected a candidate based in Islington, London, coming up with a plan for Warrington North, getting their house in order so people know what issues they are campaigning on?
“Only a majority Conservative government will get Brexit done so that we can move on and focus on people’s priorities like tackling crime, investing in our NHS and making our immigration system fairer.”
