SHADOW ministers from across the region joined Stockton South’s Labour candidate for a day of campaigning in Ingleby Barwick yesterday (SATURDAY).

Labour’s shadow Treasury Minister Catherine McKinnell, along with fellow shadow ministers Jenny Chapman, Chi Onwurah, Roberta Blackman-Woods, Iain Wright and other North-East MPs to talk to voters about the cost of living outside Tesco in Ingleby Barwick, near Stockton.

They were supporting Stockton South Labour candidate Louise Baldock, who hopes to win the seat back from Conservative incumbent James Wharton in 2015. The seat is an important marginal seat for both parties.

The Labour Party was campaigning in each of the 106 key seats it aims to win at the 2015 General Election yesterday as part of a #CostofCameron day, aimed to highlight what it perceives as a cost of living crisis.

The campaign comes as Labour said working people were now on average £1,600 a year worse off since David Cameron came to office.

"They were supporting Stockton South Labour candidate Louise Baldock,"

Exactly. And that's all they were doing. All these MPs did not turn up in Stockton because they are the slightest bit interested in the cost of living to Stockton people, they were simply canvassing for votes.

Is that the famous Stocko?
Anyway shouldn't Jenny Chapman be looking after her own constituencies issues rather than spend time helping some other wannabe MP?

why doesn't she do what all the other ex-london councillors (Progress candidates) do when they are parachuted into safe seats?

Go on breakfast tv at the weekend then it will save her trailing up from london. She can then wait until election night to visit her new constituency - as these parachute candidates do!

It has been alleged by some of the contributors to HAS, I now understand why she has been missing for a week or so!

I hope she can debate better than she proved on HAS.
