Why I’m Standing For Election

We’re mad as hell and we’re not going to take this anymore”. Those famous lines spoken by Peter Finch in the 1976 film ‘Network’ sum up what a great many people believe about the current state of our political system.

I share some of that frustration, and rather than sit and shout at the newspaper, radio or TV I decided to try and funnel my frustration and energy into becoming a local Borough Councillor.

Councillors can’t have any impact over issues like the EU, immigration, income tax, fiscal and foreign policy and international aid. However, they can make a real difference to things like local health and social care, planning & housing and the health of our local economy and the communities we live in.

That’s why I’m standing and I hope you’ll decided to vote for me.
