LABOUR Parliamentary Candidate Chris Oxlade's Christmas Lights switch-on has been slammed as an unbelievable waste of taxpayers money and a dreadful shambles after a shoddy event in Crawley, TBG can sensationally reveal.

Seemingly still craving cheesy publicity in hiring kids tv celeb Stephen Mulhearn and sharing the limelight; Oxlade is a has-been Disc Jockey from former local radio station in Crawley Radio Mercury, which ceased broadcasting in 2010.
One Crawley resident told TBG - "His (Oxlade) main selling point to be Crawley's MP appears to be that he was born in Crawley - something which can't happen these days since Labour closed down the maternity ward at Crawley Hospital in 1999."
Another resident at the event with his daughter said - "All I can say is it was unbelievable. My daughter asked me when they were putting the lights on - but they already had."
A 3rd resident told TBG - "It was a joke - we couldn't see the fireworks and the decorations themselves are dreadful.
"It was a shambles and an embarrassment. Spending £100 on the event would have been too much, let alone £17,000."
