General Election 2017

Very pleased to be standing again at GE2017 on June 8th as Prospective MP for Harrogate & Knaresborough constituency.

Of course, Brexit will be the major issue in focus. My stance is for a softer approach to Brexit, one that, in particular, would guarantee UK access to the single market.

But there are wider issues here.

Frankly I don’t think the country can endure another decade of austerity. Under the Conservatives :

  • wages have stagnated, with no real growth since the crash
  • the NHS is being progressively starved of proper funding
  • schools budgets are being cut–nearly all schools in our area will have to cut numbers of teachers by 2019
  • progress towards sustainable energy has stalled and the green agenda seems irrelevant to the Tories

The fact is the Tories like to rule–to be in charge–but have not got a clue about how to govern.

Their reckless approach to a hard Brexit, the NHS, schools and the green agenda is the wrong path for our great country and will bring it to its knees by 2022 if they continue in office.

There is a progressive choice in Harrogate & Knaresborough, if you don’t like the way the Tories are running the country.  Please support us by donating to the campaign now, or signing up to deliver our message.  You can donate here:
