Change Britain's Future

This election is your opportunity to change the direction of our country - to change away from a hard or woolly brexit and a decade of lost growth, to change our funding of our public services, to change our politics in Westminster and in Bromsgrove. Read more

About

Dear Bromsgrove Resident

Two years ago I wasn’t involved in politics.

After the 2015 election, I joined the Liberal Democrats
to
change in the way we do politics in Britain. To change the outcomes we receive; the economy, our prosperity, our freedoms and our essential public services.

So it is an incredible privilege to be working in Bromsgrove and asking you to choose me as your parliamentary representative. I’ve met many wonderful and supportive people and I’m looking forward to meeting as many people as possible in the next few weeks.

My background is as a scale up entrepreneur – as I often say to people, my job is to solve problems and sometimes I get paid. I learnt that nothing good comes without hard work and a little bit of inspiration. I have learnt that to succeed, you need to be brave and you need, above all, to believe that what you do will make a real difference to people. I offer my spirit of optimism, of energy and drive and the desire to make a difference, to the people of Bromsgrove.

I believe we need a new politics in Britain and it is time that Bromsgrove was noticed by the political elite. We need a new, centralist approach to the challenges and issues that we all face. I do know that ideological hatred of the EU is both wrong but also foolish for the damage it will do to our economy.

Of course, I would say that, for my wife is German and her German father came to Britain in the 1970s when we were the sick man of Europe. For 20 odd years he led German investment in Siemens UK, building it into a critically important UK company which employs thousands of British people in Worcester, the West Midlands, across the UK and which trades around the world.

I also know that to raise our wages and to pay real living wages, as well as fully fund our public services, we have a choice; we can either seek to take money from someone else, as Corbyn or May would have us do, or we can grow our economy so that businesses and organisations can afford to pay good wages which, in turn, increases tax receipts for public services.

That’s why I’m putting membership of the Single Market at the heart of my campaign and if elected I will do everything in my power to maintain our immediate economic interests and avoid a decade of lost growth and prosperity.

We have been gifted a unique opportunity to change Britain’s direction on 8th June. Let’s seize the moment.

I stand for a different kind of politics. I support the Liberal Democrat values of openness, tolerance and unity. And, with your help, I will work to Change Britain’s Future.

Neil

    Neil, You are a breath of fresh air on the political scene and I trust you to work honestly and hard as a future MP. You have shown determination and courage as well as ability in your business career and will be exactly the sort of MP Bromsgrove needs to encourage our start up companies and bring hope to everyone who has concerns over our future prosperity. You have fairness in your DNA and whilst supporting the successful will not turn your back on those, who have been finding life under this harsh Conservative Government really tough. Real strength does not seek confrontation but negotiates carefully by understanding the position of the other and real stability does not change its mind every time the wind blows in a different direction but holds to its values and principles, as you do. We need you and others like you to reverse the economic damage done to the UK by the present Government and by the red/blue duopoly which we have suffered for so long. Good luck in your election campaign.
