11/11/2016 – claimed 90p to travel to Sheffield Town Hall.
25/11/2016 – claimed £1.35 to travel to her surgery.
20/09/2016 – claimed £2.09 for stamps.

22/09/2011 – claimed £3.70 for a tram ticket.

There hasn’t been a single year since she was elected in 2010 when she has claimed less than the average MP.
In 2009 she was exposed by the Telegraph for claiming for four beds for a one bedroom flat in London flat: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/newstopics/mps-expenses/5375200/MPs-expenses-New-MP-sought-four-beds-for-a-one-bedroom-London-flat.html
LABOUR DO NOT CARE ABOUT OUR ELDERLY
Angela Smith’s leaflet claims “the NHS needs to be transformed into a service that works more closely with local communities keeping people well and reducing the need for hospital care” The Labour leaflet may sound good but in practice what they do is very different. Since 2012 Sheffield Labour council has closed three dementia facilities which has put a huge increased strain on families and carers.
UKIP suggested how the money could be found to keep these facilities open but Labour did not consider it a high enough priority.
As a point of principle I have personally donated my recent pay rise to the Alzheimer’s Society to help fight against this terrible disease.
CARING FOR OUT GREEN BELT
Angela Smith’s leaflet claims that “our environment matters” yet in recent years permission has been granted for housing developments in Oughtibridge, Dodworth, Penistone and Stocksbridge to name but a few. Labour obviously does not care so much about our “most beautiful countryside”!!
I am totally against any building on green belt land. I would also try to ensure that where building does take place proper consideration is given to schools, doctors, roads and general infrastructure.
