Statement to voters

I’m an engineer by trade, having started my working life in the Royal Air Force and I travelled and lived on 3 different continents before settling to live in Heckmondwike.

I was raised by my grandparents on a council estate and am now a working, single parent with a 9 year-old who lives with me full-time. As such, I’m acutely aware of a lot of the issues facing ordinary, working-class people today, particularly with respect to education, the NHS and the environment.

I started getting active in politics because of my despair at the rise of the career politicians - those on the ‘public school/Oxbridge/political researcher/politician’ conveyor belt that has produced so many of our MPs, across the political spectrum, in recent times. They’ve spent their whole lives in a political bubble. In my opinion, it should be a pre-requisite qualification to have at least a few years life experience outside of that bubble before you can become an MP!

If I’m not elected to parliament on this occasion, my Plan B is to start teacher training in September. Fingers crossed for no more increases in tuition fees or cuts to the education budget, but I won’t be holding my breath if the Tories get back in again.

This statement was added by Alan Freeman, their team, or by a Democracy Club volunteer, based on information published by the candidate elsewhere.
