Tory councillor Barbara Reid is wrong to assume that I am a Labour supporter (Chronicle, October 23).
If she re-reads my letter (Chronicle, October 9) she will see that I merely pointed out that the Labour, Lib Dem and Green candidates for Brentford and Isleworth all live locally. This is unlike Tory candidate Mary Macleod.
If Ms Macleod really has 'total' commitment to the constituency, then why on earth did she move out of it?
And please do not insult the intelligence of the voters by claiming that she would move back but for the credit crunch. There was no credit crunch in 2006, which is when she was selected.
Further more, if Cllr Reid thinks I am guilty of 'pettiness' for mentioning that Ms Macleod has applied to represent other consituencies, then presumeably she thinks this term also applies to her Tory colleague Mark Bowen.
Cllr Bowen did, after all, make a big issue out of the fact that Feltham and Heston was the only seat he had applied for.
Incredibly, Cllr Reid characterises Mary Macleod's constituency hopping as proof that she posseses a 'fighting spirit'.
But for whom would she be a real fighter if she got elected?
Would she fight for the ordinary folk of the Brentford and Isleworth constituency - or would she instead fight for the interests of the rich and powerful who are bankrolling her campaign?
