POLITICS: Standing for some action

editorial image

Joan Tebbutt recently set out the Liberal Democrats’ stall for the council elections.

In it she asked for more talk.

I was so upset at what the Labour administration at County Hall has done to our town that my husband and I decided to stand for Morpeth Town Council, in the Kirkhill and North wards respectively.

Not coming from political backgrounds, we have had a lifetime of politicians talking at us.

Now we want action, we thought the best way to deliver that was to do it ourselves.
