Personal Policies What I stand for

What I stand for

Taking the brave step to stand for public office is something that I have been deliberating with for a long time, because I have increasingly felt a greater disconnection with the two mainstream parties that have been consistently in control of Government. However, in the UK, the political system is set up in such a way that it is very difficult for any new party to break in the establishment, but that does not mean that change cannot be enforced in a different manner.

Based on the results of the last election, there are or were currently 67 marginal seats in the UK, however based on the figures of the election prior to that, when Theresa May was re-elected after giving away her majority for no reason (or was there?) when there were 97 marginal seats.

As we all know in the election of 2019, the Brexit party targeted all the marginal seats, which could have won them the balance of power, this strategy was so effective, it forced the incoming prime minister (Boris Johnson) to take them seriously and basically agree to push ahead with Brexit.

The last fifteen years of government has been a shambles, all the way back to the financial crisis of 2008, although the roots of that crisis were as a direct result of the actions of banks over the previous decade to that, so in reality, the mismanagement extends backwards at least twenty five years, during successive governments across the political divide. This is not an issue of Labour or Conservative, they are equally to blame and directing the anger with one, to vote for the other is the exact form of ‘YoYo Politics’ that they have come to rely on, or indeed exploit.

As voters or citizens, we have been slowly indoctrinated to be divided along party or political lines, a strategy that has been used throughout history to exercise control and I really do believe that people have never been as polarised as they are now, on so many issues.

I also fervently believe that in a society where our freedom is being eroded at an alarming rate, it is incumbent upon us to act quickly, while we still can, because the steps that are being taken in other parts of the country, which are increasingly restricting people, will invariably reach our door in the future.

It is against this background, that I have decided to take the step to stand for the most difficult if not impossible seat in the country, one that has never had an independent MP, in fact, no independent has even received enough votes to recover their deposit, but that is no reason not to stand.
