PM shares in town’s big day

SOUTH Cumbria was the focus of the UK’s attention yesterday, as Prime Minster, David Cameron, swept into Ulverston.

Just hours earlier it had been announced – and revealed in the Evening Mail – that the town’s GlaxoSmithKline plant had been selected from a shortlist of four to become the site of a new £350m biopharmaceutical plant.

What a day for Ulverston and the county.

The visit of the Premier underlined the significance of the announcement – which represents GSK’s single biggest investment in the UK, ever – to the local and UK economy.

GSK’s Ulverston base has felt the pinch as much as any other business in recent years, and last year went through a difficult redundancy process.

What better way to be able to pick yourself up and dust yourself off than by toasting a £350m deal.

It is fantastic news – and a real shot in the arm at a time when the economy is faltering.

IF the Olympics do not get you excited, the moving stories of those who will take part in this year’s torch procession must surely touch a nerve.

Today’s inspirational tale about Maggie Harrison is enough to soften even the harshest of Games critics.

The 2012 event is about more than sport. It is about a nation uniting – and some of the country’s bravest people being celebrated.
