Councillor Davod Harrison

Opposition Yes, But Make It Credible

in Napoleonic times
Anyone who believes in democracy should welcome the Labour party making their presence known in Totton precinct on a Saturday morning.

I watched one of their number being interviewed on a live feed.

He made a good point about unfairness, whereby some people, even working people, find themselves having to rely on charitable support such as food banks.
I fully agree that this should not have to happen.

Unfortunately, he then made a claim that no serious person would likely accept.

He claimed that living standards today were no better than in Napoleonic times.
I don’t think history would have been his best subject at school.

He might do well to read a little reading to understand the scale of suffering that most people endured during those difficult times.
