A final update for anyone who may be interested – I got a response when I messaged Chris on Facebook. I suggested that maybe he or other members of his team could reply to messages directly on here, so people could know that their messages had at least been read, which he said is ‘a good idea’.
commented 2017-06-02 13:21:05 +0100
Has anyone who has posted on here ever got a response from Chris? I have had no reply to any of my messages from the past two weeks. I have tweeted him a number of times asking if he is checking these messages, and got one tweet back saying he can’t reply as I have deleted my email address. This is completely untrue, every time I post I get an email thanking me for my feedback. Not sure how that is possible if I have deleted my email address. I have also sent him my email address, and as can be seen in the post below said that I am quite happy for him to answer my questions publicly here, which he does not need my email address to do.

Chris, I am quite happy for you to answer my questions via this message board if you do not have my email address. I can assure you that I did not delete it or intentionally prevent you from having access to it when I first posted on here, as you claimed on Twitter. If you cannot get it then there is a design flaw in your website. I have sent you a message not shared publicly with my email address though if you would prefer to contact me individually.

I’m sure that the other people who have recently posted questions here would also be happy for you to share your answers publicly.

To find out the candidates personal feelings about ht ematters below:

I have received letters from all the candidates in this election. Many topics – the NHS, roads, immigration etc. – have been touched on by local candidates, but some areas have been left aside, and it worries me.

I volunteer at Citizens Advice in Chelmsford, and these are three things that bother me:

- That the real crisis in the NHS is not re-arrangement of A&E departments, but mental health care. It does not care for any but the worst cases, and there is no help that gets people back to being productive. So long as the health service prevents people from actually killing themselves, the job is done. Of course, the JobCentres should pick up the slack, and help people to find work, but they don’t. Targets are given, people are sometimes offered education, but in the case of people suffering from a range of mental health problems, they need support, not education. It is not there.

- That benefits have been reduced to the point that people most severely in need no longer receive the support they used – when even this was barely enough to keep them going. Benefits are more difficult to claim, and the rules have been re-written to make them more difficult to get. Disability benefits are subject to a health assessment which is, frankly, a farce. The civil servants in charge of this have lost sight of who they actually serve. It should not be their own budgets, but the people that are there to bring help to. When I talk to them as part of my work it is, astonishingly, clear that they see their role as preventing people from getting money. Where they should be making sure that those people who need the help (in fact, and not according to some arcane regulatory formula) actually get uit, they are focussed on reducing expenditure.

- That the system, which I spend much of my time working my way through, seems to have been set up to discourage people from using it. From high cost telephone numbers which take a long time to be answered, and systems that can only effectively be used online, via forms, documents and processes apparently designed to confuse, to staff that don’t understand the systems they administer, the system is broken. How do you think that someone who is barely literate, or has not had to deal with bureaucracy before, copes with this? Some come to people like me. Far too many take not action at all, and therefore drop out of sight.

My question to you is “How would you as an individual approach this?”

Not, you will note, “What will my party do?” – but what will YOU do and say to infuence this matter?

Hi, I have a question regarding the upcoming election on the 8th. I am leaning towards wanting the Labour party in power, however, I am aware that Labour don’t have a great track record in Chelmsford in the past and so I am looking for a very honest answer from you – if I vote Labour on the 8th, it seems as though this vote is essentially wasted as going by past results, Labour are highly unlikely to beat out the Conservatives in this area. Therefore, it would make sense to use my vote tactically and vote for a party who are in position to possibly beat the conservatives in this are (e.g. Lib Dems)…hopefully drawing away one less Torie MP overall…and more hopefully, giving Labour a greater chance overall to win. I would vote Labour, but from simple research this seems as though it wouldn’t actually benefit the party at all in the bigger picture…and essentially my vote would be irrelevant and pointless as soon as it was cast as it wouldn’t affect the final outcome at all. So, please advise what to do that would be best for the Labour party as I’m also aware of Torie/Lib Dem coalitions etc.

Does Chris Vince or anyone from his campaign check these messages? I have had zero response to the message I posted here nearly a week ago.
commented 2017-05-20 14:45:16 +0100
I have just had a campaign leaflet pushed through my door. I was hoping to speak to the representative who delivered it, but by the time I got to the door they’d already left my doorstep. According to the leaflet the Conservative candidate is a ‘former banker parachuted into Chelmsford from Brussels’. Can you explain to me why this should put me off voting for her?

Also, may I suggest you check the website details printed on your leaflet? Your website is not www,chelmsfordlabourparty,

Hi, I am in the middle of moving to Sheffield this week but will be in Chelmsford (at my in-laws) on Sunday 28th May, is there any leafletting we (my partner and his brother as well) can help with on that day? Realise it’s very limited availability we have but we will also be campaigning in Sheffield :)

I would like some posters and leaflets please. I want to turn my street RED !

I can’t do much physically as I am a wheelchair-bound disabled person but I am very active online. I feel very strongly that we need leaflets with Corbyn’s Labour policies on in easy-to-read bullet points with good vote winners like free school meals, free hospital car parking, £10 minimum wage from 18 years old, and the 4 extra bank holidays near the top !

We also need a separate flyer showing that only Labour will save Broomfield Hospital. Corbyn will ensure that Vince will be able to prevent the downgrading of our A&E.

Could you send me some posters & leaflets ? or do I need to come and pick them up from HQ ?

P.S. I haven’t had any e-mails or info about meetings from you since the last meeting I attended just before Jeremy Corbyn’s last victory…

Dear Chris,

I’m very concerned about the upcoming election. I live in Moulsham Lodge and, in the recent local elections, received campaign leaflets from the Lib Dem and Conservative candidates, but nothing from Labour. With less than 4 weeks left until polling day, I have yet to receive anything from you and the Labour team. Furthermore, your policies and plans as a candidate don’t seem to be readily available on the internet. Maybe I’m looking in the wrong place, but I’m sure I’m not the only person seeking this information. I have seen your tweets, but so far they only seem to be about why we shouldn’t vote for other parties, which is very much a distasteful game the Conservatives seem to be playing. Please make this election about what you and Labour can offer; why you are the better candidate.

I am very worried about the future of our country under a Conservative government, and would like to vote Labour. Please can you assure me that your campaign will be intensifying throughout Chelmsford throughout the upcoming weeks.

Thank you very much.

I am a mature voter and resident in Old Moulsham, Chelmsford. In the past I have either voted Labour, LibDems or occasionally Green. I have never and will never vote Conservative.

It’s very disappointing therefore to know that the Conservatives will once again win this seat at the election next month, rendering my vote effectively meaningless whoever I choose to vote for.

I beg you – Labour, LibDems, Greens (and all others) – to nominate a single candidate in order to provide genuine competition against the Tories.

Without doing this, the Conservatives will win this seat – yet again – with 100% certainty.

For your information I am sending this same message to all potential Progressive Alliance parties.

Kind regards

I had every intention on voting Conservative on 8th June, however on wakening up and listening to the SKY news this morning on the labour leaks meanifesto has made me question my voting position. I would therefore like to maybe come to any open meetings available to listen and learn more on Labour’s intentions. I live in Southminster, ESSEX. Can you please point me into the right direction for these meetings? Many thanks and greatly appreciate your help. I have left a voice mgs this morning on your chelmsford office number. My telephone is: 01621-331441 or 07595261171.

Unfortunately I am unable to canvas but would happily display posters in my car, my home and will be constantly supporting our party via social media and also via my emails out.

I wish I could assist in other ways but both my health and my business cause issues and time constraints.

You have my vote

Can you let me know what your plans will be for campaigning ahead of the general election please?

Will there be any events or rallies in Chelmsford?

Invite a speaker to our meeting

To discuss Proportional Representation at a CLP meeting. We can arrange for a Labour MP, an activist from Make Votes Matter or the Labour Campaign for Electoral Reform, or a speaker from organisations like Compass and the Electoral Reform Society to come and address the meeting about the need for electoral reform.

What do you think?

Dear Sir,

I am a consultant cardiologist in Chelmsford and I have been doing a number of public meetings with the aim of increasing public awareness of heart issues. I am doing a public lecture on Monday 20th March at Anglia Ruskin University at 7.30pm. The event entitled ‘how to avoid a heart attack’ is free and open to all (we ask that people register – just google ’ how to avoid a heart attack anglia ruskin university).

If you give me an e-mail address I can send you a poster. I would be happy to give the talk at your club in the future if there was interest. Perhaps if some of your members came along on the 20th March they might know if it would be suitable.

Best wishes,

Bin collections.

From the reply sent to me by Julia at the Council seems all people at the council during a meeting voted to reduce our bin collection. We were not told, indeed during Christmas I emailed wondering when we would get our yearly list and nobody mentioned this, how undemocratic!

I am a resident in old moulsham have been for 21 years. I have had in the lead up to Xmas 3 parking tickets £210 in a month. I live in redcliff rd Cm2 0jp. Some 15 years ago new house in malbough road were built when the planning went out, we as residents where concerned about parking. We was assured that these property’s would not be given parking permits as they had garages and parking at back. They now have permits ! When they have a place to park ! We also have a Chinese restaurant and a take away on moulsham, both when planning was given we as residents were asured that permits would not be given they have 4. During the Xmas build up the restaurant has the Xmas meals going on, people park and leave cars over night. If I move my car after 6pm there is no where to park other than yellow lines. I also work shift work when I get home at 6.40 there is no were to park and most cars don’t have permits, only we all know wardens won’t get there till after 9 am. Trying to stay awake until there is a space is a joke after working all night. As residents we have complained about this for as long as new house have been built. We have asked for times of restrictions times to be changed till 11pm with no response for parking.

A few weeks ago my neighbour who has off road parking had a car parked in front of house his wife could not get car out to go to work, as half the permitted area is in front of there drives. The parking was not interested and shut, in the end we phoned police and they removed car….luckily it was not insured.

The parking permit is there to help residents, in 20 years I have seen 8 people move, because of the parking or the lack of changes needed by parking. My daughter 10 was born in my house and we don’t won’t to move only I can no longer afford to park there. Every time I get a ticket even though I have a permit it just proves the system in place does not work

My great granddad was a Desert Rat. Caught a bit of shrapnel in his back, was in a wheelchair for the rest of his life. Now… When I hear from a friend of mine that social workers are going to evict him in a month. I think that great granddad would find government bureaucrats bullying and evicting citizens pretty familiar. I’d also think that if he saw a UK citizen made homeless is a damn disgrace for what he fought for. Not even 100 years later and it’s falling apart? Those needing help tossed out, not knowing where the hell to turn to?

I linked him to a charity up around there. Also reaching out to y’all. Since it seems a goddamned Texan is doing a better job at looking out for the folks in Essex than the Tories in charge.

I can’t find the details of when I joined the party which was just after Jeremy Corbyn was elected leader. I have the impression that anyone who joined after that leadership election will have to pay for the privilege [£25.00 such a cheek!]. So will someone tell me either ‘pay up’ or don’t worry your on the electoral list and ‘we will definitely be sent the ballot forms’. I am a carer and my husband is not at all well at the moment so I can’t make any definite volunteer commitments for now.

I want to express my disgust at what is happening within the Labour Party at the moment! At a time when the Labour Party should be leading the way and showing the people of the Country that they are the party to get the best deal for them when leaving the EU instead they are using it as another opportunity to discredit Jeremy Corbyn and try to push forward their careers.

This is a time when the Labour Party should be showing solidarity, while they watch the Tory party struggle to find a new leader and try to lead while the country deals the tatters of the EU referendum. The Labour Party should be showing the public that they are the party to trust, the party that keeps its head, stands together and thinks about what is best for the people. Instead some MP’s are throwing their toys out of the pram yet again because they didn’t get what they wanted!

I thought they believed in democracy yet at every opportunity many MP wants to ignore the democracy within their own party and oust the leader that was elected by their own members!

This country has no chance if the labour party are acting like petty children and the next Prime Minister looks to be Boris Johnson!!

I plead to all MPs to think of the public and their supporters not just think about their careers, their job is more important then that.

I go to bed hoping that tomorrow will bring a bit more sanity to this whole mess!!!
