I have lived in the Braintree area for many years, currently working in the financial technologies industry, and prior to that, I was a Royal Marine Commando for 8 years and having served two tours of duty in Afghanistan. I am thrilled to be standing for Reform UK because I believe in Britain, and only Reform UK has the courage to stand for real change. After years of higher and higher taxes, ever-increasing government borrowing, out-of-control immigration, and crumbling infrastructure, it is time for that change.

The Tories and Labour have become almost indistinguishable from each other, and a vote for either party will simply bring in more of the same disappointments we have become all too familiar with. I believe the people need a real alternative; Reform UK and myself as its PPC for Braintree represent that alternative. Only Reform can stop the boats and get a handle on this out-of-control immigration issue. Only Reform UK will get the economy working for the people and tackle the cost of living crisis. Only Reform will stand up for British values and common-sense policies to save Britain.

The area’s I am most passionate about and what I will advocate for as your PPC for Braintree are.

  • Cost of living crisis:

We need to put money back into the pockets of the British people, we need to incentivise people to get back into work and earning a living by increasing the basic rate of income tax from £12,571 to £20,000.

  • Get immigration under control:

Current legal and illegal immigration is at catastrophic levels! This is completely unstainable and is not only damaging for our economy, workforce, infrastructure but also our core values and culture as a nation.

  • Reform the NHS:

In Britian we love our national health service, and for good reason. But simply throwing an ever growing sum of money at the NHS is not a sustainable we to keep this vital service operational. We need a full review into the way this service is run and managed. In terms of spending the average price per person in the population is in alignment with other western countries the issues faced by the NHS are in waste, incompetent management, bureaucracy and poor procurement.
