Subject: How Ed Miliband's cuts policy is dividing Labour's heartlands correction

The geography in this piece about cuts to Library services in Liverpool is a bit muddled

http://www.guardian.co.uk/politics/2012/jan/20/miliband-labour-cuts-liverpool-reaction

At first I thought "hold on -- Woolton's solidly LibDem"

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Woolton_%28ward%29

Then I realised that what you meant was a safe Labour was the parliamentary constituency of Garston and Halewood run by Maria Eagle, which also includes:

Allerton and Hunts Cross (in Liverpool);
Belle Vale (in Liverpool);
Cressington (in Liverpool);
Halewood North (in Knowsley);
Halewood South (in Knowsley);
Halewood West (in Knowsley);
Speke-Garston (in Liverpool);

But neither Maria Eagle or Garston and Halewood are mentioned which has created a lack of clarity, which also isn't helped by mentioning Woolton in the opening paragraph and then spending the rest of its duration talking about *Walton" which does lend its name to a parliamentary constituency.

Take care,

Stuart.

Thanks Stuart -- the earlier reference (para 2) to "a safe Labour constituency" should have specified Garston and Halewood. I'll amend this text and add our usual explanatory footnote shortly.
Best wishes.
So ...


Which means:
