Our Laboour MP, Angela Eagle has condemned the the announcement that the Wallasey job centre is closing as “reckless” and has tabled an early day motion. But we can’t leave it up to politicians like Angela, important though their support is. The government needs to see that there is widespread opposition to the plans and the hardship and inconvenience they will cause to local unemployed people and those wanting advice, who will have to get to Birkenhead if these plans go ahead. So we need as many people as possible to sign the official petition calling on the government to scrap the whole idea. Will you sign the petition now?
