Letter published in the Sheerness Times Guardian: 11th July, 2012

Dear Sir
Over two years into the Coalition Government we are experiencing a double dip recession directly
as result of George Osborne's budgets which went for public sector cuts with no policies - except U-turns -for growth.

Worse, we have seen David Cameron frankly dancing on a pin as he puts one leg in and one leg out every time he goes to a European summit. He is playing to his narrow minded Tory back benchers (including Gordon Henderson) who are demanding we pull out of Europe. Their vision for the UK is that we become a third rate power, a kind of version of the Isle of Man, to the largest trading bloc in the world. Goodness, what a very sad vision they have of the world. Meanwhile, China, India, Indonesia, Brazil and even Russia power ahead.
Our country needs strong visionary leadership which takes a leaf from Roosevelt's New Deal programmes of the 1930s.

During my time as the local MP, Sittingbourne and Sheppey received over £250m worth of infrastructure projects. It worked: we had some of the lowest unemployment figures ever and especially amongst those aged 16-24.

It's not rocket science.
Yours aye
Derek Wyatt
President, S&S Labour Party
