North East Cambridgeshire Constituency
PPC - Christopher Thornhill
I wonder how many of you are like me and feel so disengaged with modern day politics? It appears today, all the main parties act the same, with plausible sound-bite policies and rhetoric, but no meaningful plan for change.
Politics needs to change by bringing in people with real life experience, who think and talk common-sense. I have three simple but practical principles:
- Fairness – everyone should be treated fairly, and we should play by the same rules.
- Meritocracy – opportunities should be given (or at least considered) to people with the right skills, aptitude, and experience.
- Democracy – free to discuss opinions and ideas, and then voting on them is a fair and right way to make key decisions.
I have been working for over 40 years and involved in many industries starting out in the nuclear sector and now working in life sciences. I have been an IT project manager for over 20 years so understand how to deliver change by focusing on meaningful outcomes.
I also consider myself as an environmentalist and I want to leave this world in a better state than I found it. Practically, this means I believe that we need strategies for sustainability and energy with the aim of reducing consumption and maximising the natural resource we do have. Whether you believe in “Net-Zero” or not, I do believe we need to ween ourselves off fossil-based fuels by focusing on developing a diverse range of British-owned clean energy technologies and aiming to provide world-leading job opportunities and energy security.
My hope for the future is that this country becomes functional again, by reducing red-tape and inefficiencies and introducing modern best practices. I will always challenge proposals and seek the undiluted truth, to ensure decisions are fair and deliver high value for the country.
