Conservatives commit to destruction of Hillingdon

The Conservative party manifesto was launched earlier today – this was contained on pages 23 and 24 (red highlights added) –

We are working through one of the largest-ever investment programmes in our roads and railways, putting some £40 billion into transport improvements across the United Kingdom over the rest of this decade. We are investing to reduce travel time and cost, increase capacity and attract investment here in the UK. We will continue our programme of strategic national investments, including High Speed 2, Northern Powerhouse Rail and the expansion of Heathrow Airport – and we will ensure that these great projects do as much as possible to develop the skills and careers of British workers.

HS2 will devastate the North of our borough whilst the Third Runway will destroy over 800 homes, render thousands uninhabitable due to noise and pollution whilst making our already dangerous air quality even worse.

Labour are open to the Third Runway subject to ‘certain conditions being met’ whilst John McDonnell supports the construction of HS2 according to The Independent.

Only UKIP of the major parties oppose both projects whilst having sensible policies to improve air and rail transport.

You have a choice on 8th June – vote UKIP.

Here, our candidate Elizabeth Kemp explains why…..

My name is Elizabeth Kemp and I would like to offer you a choice in the Uxbridge & South Ruislip constituency.

The Conservative government have made swingeing changes to many areas of the benefits system but at what price?

Are these modifications efficient or cost effective?

Have they shown how these changes have made things better?
