Our MP works well for us

The response made by Sarah Owen in last week’s Rye Observer shows how naive and self congratulating she is.

To say Amber Rudd MP has not stuck up for her community or to insinuate that Amber Rudd is not hard working is just not true. Ms Owen has conveniently forgotten the reality, let alone that the constituency does not just cover Hastings. As far as local issues are concerned, such as post offices, Hastings Pier, jobs, transport both road and rail, local schools, Amber Rudd has given full support and encouragement and “worked hard” all with the intention of bringing economic improvements and benefits to her residents she serves as a Westminster MP.

Ms Owen says that “most people” want to see change, judging from the survey. Who actually are “those people?” She says “they” want change, I think not. Do most people want to see Tristan Hunt, married by the way into one of the wealthiest families in the country, in charge of our schools, Andy Burnham, associated with hospitals that lacked due care and respect to families, Ed Balls associated with the financial crisis that we are all left paying for, Ed Milliband who wants to be Prime Minister, elected by the trade unions, running the Country.

That’s not a change, that is bringing back mainly the same people who left the nation in such a poor state last time they were in office.

Instead of promoting incorrect concerns such as those on the front page of The Rye Observer regarding Rye Sports centre, which are totally wrong, it would be nice to see Ms Owen promoting the excellent work done by all those associated with our schools, staff at our hospitals, the police who look after our security and welfare each day.

Amber Rudd, MP has done a grand job in her first term representing The Hastings and Rye Constituency under harsh economic circumstances, mainly caused by Labour’s spending sprees. George Osborne said on many occasions that money was not set aside to mend the broken roof for rainy days. The Labour Minister, who left the note, saying that there is no money left, summed it all up.
