Harborough Oadby and Wigston Constituency
My name is Danuta Jeeves and I am honoured to have been selected to be the Reform UK PPC (party political candidate) for the Harborough, Oadby & Wigston constituency in South Leicestershire.
I am a soon-to-be-retired mother and grandmother and have lived in Leicestershire for most of my life; the last 40 years being in Whetstone, bordering on the Harborough constituency (which I know very well, as I have taught and socialised there for many years.)
I studied for a teaching degree at the age of 40 and have been teaching English in both mainstream and SEN settings throughout Leicestershire and the East Midlands. I currently teach ESOL to adult learners from all walks of life and cultures; a profession I love and feel privileged to be part of.
I joined Reform UK in October 2022, when I became totally disillusioned with the current state of British politics; the Tory Party in particular, which I had been a member of for many years.
The party had become totally non-democratic in its leadership selection process and was seemingly oblivious to the fact that it was blatantly ignoring the will of the people; the very people who had given them an 80-seat majority under the promise that Brexit would be delivered and we would regain control of our borders and regain our sovereignty.
Indeed, throughout the leadership debacle post-covid, it became apparent that the party was not only ignoring the will of the people but openly disregarding its own manifesto promises, which was threatening the safety the population, as immigration (illegal in particular) was out of control, leading to the further immense problems in NHS provision, housing and the economy. This is worsening by the day and any promises made to change by the government are useless and untrue.
As a teacher with over 25 years’ experience in both secondary and adult education, I had long ago become disillusioned with the left-wing biased indoctrination of emerging educational trainees and professionals, as I watched in horror the disappearance of common sense and core British values in the classroom.
As I witnessed the demise of core British values, as they slowly faded from the curriculum in order to meet the ever-changing equality and diversity laws, (which dictate schools’ policies under the guise of “multi-culturalism”) I became more worried about the blatant sexualisation of vulnerable young minds by the implementation of “gender recognition” teaching, exposing young, vulnerable minds to sexual content that they are not emotionally developed to understand, or indeed, need to.
I am also a WASPI woman, (Women Against State Pension Inequality) and as such, along with thousands of others, have been treated unfairly by an ill-thought-out government decision on pension equality in the 90s, which has had a detrimental effect on women born in the 1950s, affecting their family lives and health. Successive governments have tried to ignore this injustice and have swept the matter under the carpet. I am passionate about fighting for our rights and will use my political platform to do so.
In addition to this, the political climate has become so “woke” that it is virtually impossible to have free speech or declare that you are a man or a woman, without fear of retribution and even imprisonment. Fighting this, too, will be a priority of mine.
It is therefore, due to the continuing anti-democratic government, (run by globalists like the WHO and WEF), that I have decided to join the only party which WILL make the change needed to make Britain great again.
In the coming weeks and months, I will be campaigning robustly with an enthusiastic and loyal team of fellow Reform UK spokespeople and supporters in Leicestershire. I will also be attending as many fellow candidates’ campaigns as possible and supporting the party as a whole; a party which is growing in numbers and momentum daily.
I am truly passionate and dedicated to making change happen so that we regain control of our borders, sovereignty and customs; not to mention our identity (I am STILL a WOMAN and a MOTHER – Not a “person who bears children”) .
SO, LET’S MAKE BRITAIN GREAT AGAIN & VOTE REFORM UK!
