  • "I will be giving her as much support as she gave Eastleigh's Ford workers.
    That is ***k all.
    Chris Huhne started an early day motion in parliament (which local tories like julian Lewis and desmond swain refused to sign) UKIP leafleted 5000 houses, the labour guy signed our petition - Maria Hutchings did nothing.
    All she is concerned about are a few nimby tories in Botley who dont want houses built near them and think they should be built in Eastleigh instead. Still she did say she only wanted to represent the views of 'middle england' What a disgrace."

TWO long-standing Conservative Hampshire MPs joined forces with the party's prospective parliamentary candidate Maria Hutchings as she went canvassing for votes in West End.

Havant MP David Willetts, who is the Shadow Secretary of State for Universities and Skills, and New Forest West MP, Desmond Swayne, lent their support to Maria Hutchings who is standing in Eastleigh.

She said: "I have been living in West End for over two years with my family.

"Living in the community has really enabled me to understand the issues affecting people and what is evident on the doorsteps is that residents want a local person to represent them and take their views to parliament."
