York MP Julian Sturdy visits Nestlé factory

York Press: MP Julian Sturdy MP Julian Sturdy

YORK MP Julian Sturdy has visited the city’s Nestlé factory for an update on the company’s continuing investment and job creation.

He met a number of young apprentices while on the tour of the site where popular chocolate bars such as KitKat and Aero are made.

Technical director Richard Martin spoke of the company’s commitment to youth employment.

Nestlé recently announced it will create 1,900 UK and Ireland employment opportunities for young people over the next three years, including 300 paid work-experience placements.

Mr Sturdy, who represents the York Outer ward, welcomed the new jobs.

He said: “I was delighted to see at first hand the impact of Nestlé’s continued investment in to the city.

“With the size and continued importance York plays within Nestle, I’m delighted a large number of those opportunities created through its Youth Initiative will be in York.”

All very interesting.

It's also interesting that Mr Sturdy writes a monthly column for this newspaper. His latest was just last weekend and just as so many feel the need to do, he covered the controversial subject of the Lendal Bridge closure.
He seemed to be of the strange and misguided opinion that our Labour council's lifting of the bridge closure for the recent TUC march and protest was somehow "facilitating the TUC agenda" and apparently, even though they went nowhere near the bridge and even though their focus was the Barbican Centre and even though they were walking and not subject to the bridge closure, apparently they were receiving special council treatment from their Labour pals.
Funny because I thought the bridge was temporarily opened so the "people of York who pay every day" would suffer less disruption as a result of the march.

What's even more interesting is that I pointed this out in the comments section of Mr Sturdy's article and lo and behold! Now the whole article has disappeared from this site altogether!
Lucky I took screenshots eh?

So what does it tell me?

Well, if they'd just removed my comment it would have said that someone thought my comment was offensive or broke the rules. However I know it did neither, so rather than face the embarrassment of being shown to have been trying to score petty political points with baseless arguments or face accusations of trying to shut down debate it would seem to be better to remove everything.

I know politicians are the least of us to hold our hands up but having been offered no other explanation I have no choice but to infer from this missing article an admission from Mr Sturdy that he was misguided and mistaken.

Oh, and another interesting thing - Mr Sturdy is our Conservative MP.
Yep that's right, he's not part of Badger's "subversive Marxist lefty cabal that seeks to destroy democracy and shut down debate and free speech in York" - he's Conservative.
So when 2015 comes and we vote all these charlatans out that we're all so dissatisfied with (and rightly so!) who are going to vote in? The last lot of proven charlatans? Or these new people of a different colour who (going by the evidence presented) now appear to exhibit the same qualities as the charlatans we have now?

What a dilemma!

I am passionately against redaction, excision and censorship. Say it and say it well. If you are right, be proud. If you are wrong, be contrite.

Taking screenshots now.
