Dhindsa promises to 'get the hospital built' whilst at the same time supporting the Farm Terrace campaigners who's land is essential to provide the space the hospital needs to expand, so how does that work exactly? He also promises to reinstate the hospital funding Labour allegedly promised when in government..snag is that Labour aren't in power and aren't likely to be and even if they were the Mayor of Watford is not the person who decides on government spending. Empty promises? you betcha, don't waste your vote, vote Dorothy!.

yes its at a very low level, stillI think this is the best of the four, he is clear in his priorities, and lets face it Watford Labour have taken this to the top and got commitment from thier party leader.

As for any conflict between Farm Terrace and the Hospital it is onlt there becouse Dorothy has put it there in my opinion

The NHS loves you, your familey and friends, time to love t back I say

Phil Cox - UKIP Mayoral candidate for Watford says...

Which party is sponsoring online trolls like UKIP-PAL and WATFORDTED?

Which party or parties stand to benefit from trolling like this?

Now there are racist posters on lampposts in West Watford. Which party or parties would stand to benefit from them?

Which Mayoral candidates and supporters tried to make political capital out of them at last nights election hustings in Watford?

It makes you wonder...

No figures to back that up then? Or does that not back up your argument?

Would you really expect to get a good Mayor for that money?

You need someone good to do that job, with the right skills. That sort of person does not earn the minimum wage.

No-one in their right mind would do that job for the minimum wage and no-one in their right mind should want a Mayor who would accept the minimum wage.

Phil Cox - UKIP Mayoral candidate for Watford says...

Perhaps what you should look at is who would be taking a large increase in salary and who would be taking a paycut to see what sort of people are applying for this role.

That might be a better indicator of what sort of person is applying.
