Statement to voters
Neil Miney Election Knowsley 2017
I have been a Nurse in the local NHS for 30 years. My wife and I have been married for 26 years and we have one son.
I live in Knowsley borough, and although I have lived in Liverpool until 6 years ago, I used to live in Knowsley as a youngster attending Cantril comprehensive school.
My mother was a Labour councillor in Knowsley for many years, along with both my Grandparents. My Grandmother was Mayor of knowsley, and my mum her deputy. Politics has always been part of my life.
More recently, I have been chairman of UKIP Liverpool branch, and last year I became chair of Knowsley branch.
My priorities are,
1. Cut the Foreign Aid budget by £11bn/year and fund the NHS and social care. I will oppose Tory and Labour NHS privatisation.
2. Attract jobs to Knowsley by cutting business rates by 20 percent. Make it easy to employ. Fill the high street with small businesses, not charity shops. We need to invest in apprenticeships.
3. Knowsley has some of the worst GCSE results in the UK. I want to see a Grammar school in Knowsley to help upward social mobility, and raise standards.
4. I will oppose the sell-off of our Greenbelt. Housing should be on brownfield sites, for local people. We need to control immigration.
5. I am the ONLY candidate committed to Brexit.
