National and local newspapers said last week that we would not be standing a candidate in Uxbridge & South Ruislip and would be backing Boris as a ‘Brexiteer’. That was never going to happen as not only does Boris have a chequered history on the subject, there are many areas where the Conservatives will do harm to our local community with their policies.
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?
