Biography:

Our priority must be changing the management of our government to better the lives of the British people.

Aged 10, I remember discussing politics with my family. Already, I could see how much government decisions affected the people.

At that time, it seemed that the working class were automatically Labour voters and the well to do, Conservative. I always wondered why they wouldn't switch even after being let down and having to struggle because of broken manifestos. I made my mind up not to be loyal to a party, but to support those dedicated to making better decisions to help the people. Simply put, if the party in power didn't deliver on their promises, I wouldn't vote for them.

Because I believe this country can be successful, I became a UKIP member, then joined the Brexit Party, and now I am standing for the Reform Party. I believe this country can be innovative and successful in manufacturing. This country can create and renew its infrastructure. We can improve our agriculture and grow more and better food – rather than filling the countryside with solar panels. We can even immediately start on the chronic housing shortage by making full use of brownfield sites.

On energy, I think we can do a lot more on the small scale. Personally, I think those in the right properties to have solar should get it for free and feed what is unused back to the grid. Similarly, I believe 'tulip turbines' are a great way of producing energy that placed correctly in gardens could run all day.

I believe in nationalising the utility companies. Thames Water is a fine example of how these privatisations have worked. It has £18 billion in debt borrowed against 80% of its assets (they can only legally borrow 60%), and now they want a 40% increase in your water rates to pay this off.

I also believe we also need to address carcinogenic chemicals in our environment and, particularly, stop fluoride being added to our water supply – a chemical which is a poison.

Let's really start addressing our problems. The Reform Party UK is the only party that is prepared to deal with the big issues we face today and that's why I'm standing.

The Conservatives have bankrupted this country. They just don't care. Look at their involvement with PPE contracts, the millions wasted on shoddy or useless goods and later on burning these same goods. Johnson, Truss and Sunak did not chase the money back as those getting the contracts were party donors. We could have used this on the NHS, schools, training apprenticeships, and even repairing potholes.

If you vote Conservative, it's a vote for continued hardship, increases in the cost of living and chaotic government.

If you vote Labour, you get Starmer with Blair, his mentor and advisor, over his shoulder. You get faith in international organisations and none in the UK. Starmer and Co. believe in the W.H.O. control and the W.E.F. and for your votes not to count. You get Starmer inching back to closer ties with the EU – and eventually rejoining – and chipping away at the sovereignty that we have been able to carve out for ourselves. But, of course, he's difficult to pin down as at any given time Starmer will say whatever he thinks will get Labour in power.

We need so much to be repaired and renewed. We need to be able to make living affordable again. Only Reform's Contract will deal with these issues.

We need to change the people running the UK. We have bad management and need a new board of directors. We need new people and especially those with business experience to sort the problems out, to revive the UK PLC and to let us prosper again.

This is not about one person standing for parliament. This is about changing the management at the top.

The more Reform candidates we elect the better chance this country has of surviving and dealing with the many issues we face.

Our priority must be changing the management of our government to better the lives of the British people.
