Oh wow. The Tory candidate for Broxtowe says that people driven to food banks should just get a pay day loan. A party with genuine contempt for victims of their own policies.
Darren Henry, who is running to be the MP for Broxtowe in Nottinghamshire, made the comments during a hustings event in Beeston on Friday night
Campaigning in Broxtowe today where we need just 800 votes to overturn the 2017 result. Our people powered campaign can win here and around the country to bring about real change.
@Peckhampulse @buddleoffunUtterly pathetic. I’ve done one canvass there. I’ve done loads of canvasses across the country - Stoke on Trent South today, Ashfield, Broxtowe, Canterbury, Croydon Central, Harrow East, Kensington, Battersea, Putney, Aberconwy... I’m sure you’re doing way more than me though.
Congratulations to @VoteDarrenHenry , RAF man, rugby referee and all round tough campaigner, on becoming the @Conservatives candidate in Broxtowe. No wonder Anna Soubry is so keen to avoid an election.
Just met some rather soaked Broxtowe Labour members who, alongside our fantastic candidate @Greg4Broxtowe , have just come back from Nottingham Pride. They represent what's great about our movement - positive, progressive and passionate about working for a better world.
Tomorrow, join our rally at midday in Broxtowe - the seat Anna Soubry won by the skin of her teeth in 2017. Let's build a movement to win the next General Election and transform communities across the UK.
This summer children who rely on school dinners for a decent meal are going hungry. This is completely unacceptable in the sixth richest country in the world. Thanks to everyone in Broxtowe who came out to discuss how we can combat food poverty in the UK.
Thank you to everyone who came to our rally in Broxtowe - the seat Anna Soubry won by a tiny margin in 2017. We're building a movement to win the next General Election and transform communities across the UK.
Great meeting Labour activists who are campaigning here in Broxtowe. At the General Election Labour lost this seat by fewer than 900 votes. By working together we can win here at the next election and across the country to build a country that works for the many, not the few.
