Cambridge Labour candidate Daniel Zeichner today slammed the Conservative Party General Election manifesto saying that once again it shows that the Tories are not on the side of the people of Cambridge.

Daniel Zeichner said: “The Tories just don’t get in. In an age when people feel uncertain, prices are going up, their children’s schools are underfunded, our public services are creaking at the seams, they put forward a manifesto that addresses none of these issues. Unlike Labour they have nothing to say about the future of EU nationals, and their obsession with including students in an unachievable net migration target will continue to damage our universities.

Daniel Zeichner, Labour’s Parliamentary Candidate for Cambridge and Shadow Transport Minister, is concerned about unresolved issues around taxis serving the new Cambridge North station.

Despite the fact that the first passengers will be arriving in Cambridge North on 21 May, a little over a week from now, the plans for the taxi rank and which taxis serve it remain unclear.

Cambridge North falls inside the South Cambridgeshire licensing authority, and therefore cannot be served by Hackney Carriages from Cambridge city. However, local taxi firms are concerned that there are not enough Hackneys in South Cambridgeshire to provide an adequate service to the new station.

Owen Jones CambridgeOwen Jones visited Cambridge last Friday, to speak to a hall packed with students with Daniel Zeichner and endorse his campaign for re-election as Cambridge’s MP, at an event organised by CULC. Jones also encouraged students to canvass for Daniel, and help out with his campaign.

The evening opened with Owen Jones giving a characteristically rousing and charismatic speech, advocating equality, and protection of the vulnerable. He gave Daniel specific support, and focused on his rebellion against the party whip as he voted against the triggering of Article 50, putting his constituency before his shadow ministerial position. Jones criticised the Lib Dems, citing their support for the bedroom tax, the party’s u-turn on student fees, and their lack of commitment to electoral pledges as reasons not to vote for them. The Conservatives were also attacked, as Jones described the reality of the bedroom tax, the lack of investment in young people through tuition fee increases, the scrapping of EMA and zero-hour contracts.
