Statement to voters
I moved to Reading two years ago having taken part in the 2015 General elections in Enfield North, I am a member of a local Church in Reading, I live and work.
I started and manage F.C. Whitley Wood, a local football club in the Reading and District Sunday league
I am leading advocate for the right to life, working to support marriages and families and a voice for the unborn and vulnerable members of our society.
My vision for Reading is one where homeless is tackle at the root cause and provision is made to house every man, woman, boy and girl in Reading. I will would to guarantee anyone in such a position a night shelter free of charge, and to give them assistance to find more permanent accommodation.
I am also passionate about sports, I want to see a big improvement in the quality of our playing fields and support local football club to provide spaces for any young person willing and able to participate in sports.
I believe Reading has enormous potential and I’m keen to see it thrive for the good and benefit of every member of our community.
Last month I started a petition to have the six month’s lease for Chick-Fil-A extended as the management of the Shopping Centre cave in to a minority group protest outside the Centre.
Feel free to sign my petition as we still need businesses in Reading
I have been chosen for such a time as this to be the Voice for the Voiceless, the unborn.
My party has 5 key pledges.
1) Uphold democracy and leave the EU as soon as possible. We would allow a 2nd referendum 5 to 10 years after we’ve left completely when there is evidence of what’s happened to bring the country back together again.
2) Support marriage and the family. Give a grant of £12,000 when people get married for the first time back up with training and support and also £6,000 when they have their first child backed up with training so it’s foolish not to get married and have children afterwards to get the grants.
3) Protect the unborn. We would take steps to greatly reduce abortion with the aim of getting rid of it entirely over time.
4) Make tax fair and help the poor. We would introduce a turnover tax of 5% targeted at overseas companies like Google, Facebook, Amazon Microsoft etc who send all their profits abroad. We would use some of the est. £32bn proceeds to restore the £12bn cuts to benefits to make Universal credit work and guarantee a night shelter for everyone sleeping rough.
5) Fight crime. We will help and support people leaving prison. Re offending rates average 30% but can be as high as 62%. These schemes have got them below 10% which means fewer victims. We will also create more youth activities.
