Statement to voters

Derek Winton is the Reform UK candidate for Edinburgh East and Musselburgh.

Full statement

He was born in Dundee, Scotland, to a Nurse and an RAF Aircraft Technician. Having moved to Edinburgh in 1996 to study at the University of Edinburgh, he has, with a couple of short exceptions, lived there ever since. Derek recently moved to Musselburgh with his wife and dog and works as a management consultant.

“I became politically active in 2021 in response to the UK and Scottish governments’ handling of the covid pandemic. At the time, Reform UK were the only party raising concerns about the appalling consequences of shutting down the country on the basis of poor computer models and bad science.

Since that time, in Westminster the Conservative party has abandoned its core values and responsibilities and in Holyrood the SNP lurch from scandal to farce. It is high time both were reminded of the power of the people they were elected to serve.”

This statement was last updated on May 23, 2024.

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