Actress Sally Lindsay, who currently stars in BBC sitcom ‘Still Open All Hours’ and ‘Ordinary Lies’ joined Labour’s candidate Lee Sherriff in Carlisle to show her support for Labour at the forthcoming general election.
The pair launched Lee’s NHS Carlisle recovery plan before joining volunteers on the campaign trail at the school gates of Inglewood Junior School to talk with parents about their issues and concerns.
Lee Sherriff, Labour’s Parliamentary Candidate for Carlisle, said:
“Often politics can look like a TV drama – who’s up, who’s down, who said what to who. That’s not what I’m about. Carlisle needs a voice in Parliament who is on their side.
“On day 1 I’ll knock heads together to get action and a timetable for improvement in our local NHS. After five years of dither and delay, and a stalled takeover, I will bring all parties together and demand a clear public timetable for improvement.
“With Sally’s help today we’ve raised the importance of voting Labour and a strong voice in Parliament for Carlisle.”
Star of stage and screen Sally Lindsay said:
"I don't want my children growing up in a society where there’s one rule some people and another rule for others. I want everyone to have an equal start in life.
"I'm supporting Ed Miliband and Labour because they have a plan to support everyone in society and not just a chosen few.
"Meeting people in Carlisle today, everyone was raving about Lee and the work she has been doing. The only way to get a Labour government on 8th May is to elect Lee to Parliament."
