MP tweets to defend his 'top quality city'
RICHARD Graham, Gloucester's Conservative MP, has defended the city after a parliamentary hopeful in Cheltenham said the town was an "infinitely superior" place to live.
Alex Chalk, the Tory prospective parliamentary candidate for Cheltenham, made the comment at a public meeting held in Warden Hill on Saturday evening.
Mr Chalk said that Gloucester is a city "on the march" thanks to "very energetic leadership" before adding Cheltenham is currently "punching below its weight".
Mr Graham tweeted in response: "Truth is top quality cities like Gloucester with 3Choirs, Carnival & W Cup Rugby don't need to talk about superiority."
