Spend some cash on Hatfield

Sir - Citing the economist John Meynard Keynes, the Government has decided that it should try to 'spend its way out of a recession' (having already sold the family silver and squandered the nations credit balance) by proposing to invest in large projects that were already in the pipeline.

Due to its decade of total fiscal mismanagement of the economy and financial incompetence of the public purse, the foreseeable current recession has led directly to Hatfield Town Centre suffering as a result. When is the Government going to step in and provide the finance and assurances required to get this project moving again?

The council is doing its bit, residents are doing theirs. Come on Gordon Brown, put our money where your mouth is, we need this project.
