Your Shame Prime Minister!

The Midlands Newspaper of the Year, The Express and Star had this photo and story as its main headline last night.  MInd How You Go!

Well this morning (Wednesday) one of my constituents woke up to find that he is now another victim of crime! It is  more disturbing news that yet another van has been broken into on Ashmore Park, it’s a crime epidemic in my eyes!

I am doing all I can to press the Police. I know that they feel very anxious about the situation, these statistics in Richard Gutteridge’s  story last night made headlines in our newspaper. It underlined that our Thin Blue Line is getting thinner by the day.

But this headline also really fully exposes this rotten government for the way that they are treating Wolverhampton and the West Midlands. The Conservatives just don’t care at all for this City, or for the people. Crime is a real fear now for everyone. Roll on a General Election!

In the meantime if you have a suspicion about the people that are robbing us, please tell the Police or ring crime stoppers and tell them. Please keep an eye open for neighbours and friends. Dob these criminal  people in!
