Angry that MP believes increasing speed limit of lorries will benefit traffic problems

I’m incredulous and angry that MP Steve Barclay believes increasing the speed of lorries from 40mph to 50mph is beneficial to our traffic problems.

Who was the £5,000 contributor to his GE 2011 fund? Oh yes, a Wisbech transport company.

I know he’s frustrated at having to deal with Fenland District Council and Cambridgeshire County Council over the A47 and railways.

He often says “I’m happy to support” as if he’s done something (like the A47, they’ve not even included him in the “thanks for support” section).

But what has he actually achieved for us?
