He's being smart and tagging himself alongside populist things, its what every new MP up and down the land will be doing now. Literally lifting his finger means he's doing 100% more than Meale did, and Labour lost Mansfield because of Meale, not because of the Labour Party. However, as Pete says - Mansfield will benefit from more central funding and investment, simply due to the fact that its a marginal constituency that the Tories want to keep - you might not like that, and you might see it as people being negative, but not understanding or wanting to believe that doesn't mean that its not happening, because it is and it will.
