Pork More Plentiful Under Labour

If you live in a constituency where the train stations are now going to be revamped you are nine times more likely to be living in a Labour seat.  9/10 of those getting a share of the £50 million earmarked by the government controlled Network Rail to be spent on redeveloping stations are represented by Labour MPs. The token opposition station is in Crewe (only recently Tory, and a seat Labour are desperate to get back at the general after their by-election defeat last year.)  So who are the the lucky piggies?

  • Manchester Victoria – Tony Lloyd LAB
  • Clapham Junction – Martin Linton LAB
  • Barking – Margaret Hodge LAB
  • Warrington Bank Quay – Helen Southworth LAB
  • Preston – Mark Hendrick LAB
  • Wigan North Western – Neil Turner LAB
  • Luton – Margaret Moran LAB
  • Liverpool Central – Louise Ellman LAB
  • Stockport – Ann Coffey LAB
  • Crewe – Edward Timpson CON

Perhaps the Labour Party only thinks Crewe is out on loan politically.  Such pork barrel politics is hardly subtle, but what a nice little treat to pop on all those election leaflets next year. Something tells Guido it won’t save Margaret Moran in Luton though…
