The Hague in Irlam

Its not often Irlam forms part of a national political agenda. Probably the last time Irlam got a mention on BBC National News, was when the decision to close the Steelworks was announced back in the 1970s (unless you dismiss Richard Branson's visit to the town to launch a national cleanup campaign). And so the William '14 pints' Hague was wheeled to lend his support to local election candidates.

William Hague Visits Irlam

Shadow Foreign Secretary William Hague dropped in to Irlam & Cadishead yesterday to lend his support to Conservative candidates Stephen Fitzsimmons and Lyn Bramer-Kelly and talk to shoppers and staff outside Tesco Irlam about the effect of Labour’s 10p tax bomb for hard-working local people.

William and local activists spoke and handed out flyers to hundreds of local residents in Irlam & Cadishead and received an excellent response.
