Candidate - Gareth Thomas

[email protected]


Dr Gareth has been raised in the South Wales Valley since age 6. Gareth’s Welsh heritage has a proud history of coal miners, and steel workers who were hardworking individuals. Born into a military family with both parents serving, and grandfathers fighting in WW2 it was evident that Gareth would join the military himself and he did soon after leaving school. Gareth was medically discharged from the army due to a spinal cord injury which would see him use a wheelchair for the rest of his life. Gareth is a family man, he is married and has a grown-up son, one granddaughter and one grandchild on the way.

Since leaving the military Gareth became an entrepreneur, model, professional photographer and academic after completing three degrees in psychology. He has various therapy diplomas so that he can provide mental health treatment to those who need it. In the last 5 years, Gareth has become a mental health advocate starting a non-profit that provided help to those in need. He is also a director of a charity that assists disabled people, veterans and able-bodied.

Gareth was a Liberal Democrat member 20 years ago but lost faith in them in 2010 after they negotiated with the Conservatives due to a hung parliament. In 2016 he voted to leave the European Union and voted for the Conservatives in the 2019 election. However, since the withdrawal from the EU in 2020 Gareth knows the Conservative Party have let down the UK.

Gareth believes the only way to make Britain great again was to join the Reform Party and run as a candidate for the Merthyr and Aberdare constituency. He knows the only way to make change is by getting elected to Government so that he can contribute from within Westminster.

Gareth urges his constituents to vote for Reform UK especially if you vote for any party but Labour. He states we must have a party that can be a strong opposition to a Labour Government and ensure that NHS waiting lists are brought down, homelessness is corrected, mental health becomes a priority for the young and old, energy bills are made affordable, more police on our streets, families below the poverty line are given more help, make the military strong again and provide veterans with all the help they need.

A vote for me is a vote for real change and helps the Reform Party maintain a strong foothold in British politics.
