The first of our campaign posts from UKIP candidates – today, Cliff Dixon in Hayes & Harlington
Hayes, Heathrow Villages and West Drayton can be wonderful places.
I remember when Hayes FC played at Church Road, when we had EMI, Nestles and Fairey Aviation supplying good jobs, when we had a community spirit and hope.
It is time for a change and to throw off twenty years of a Labour MP who cares more about political ideology than a unified and successful local community.
This General Election has been called because the Prime Minster says she needs a solid mandate to make sure that our exit from the EU (BREXIT) is carried out correctly.
The reality is very different – we only got the EU Referendum because of the electoral threat of UKIP and the majority of Conservative MP’s (The PM included) backed the remain side in the campaign.
During the recent General Election campaign, I was asked a very good question at the Hayes & Harlington hustings – “With the debate on immigration being driven by negativity, how can we turn immigration from a negative back to being a positive?”
My answer was fairly detailed, but a part of it was reported in some media quarters as ‘silencing the room’ and by some on Twitter as being ‘disgusting’, so with the events of the last week I wish to put the record straight.
The answer, quite simply, is by regaining control of our borders so we can monitor both the quality and quantity of those wishing to come to the UK.
Hayes can be a wonderful place. I remember when we had more green spaces, when Hayes & Yeading FC used to play in Hayes, when our High Street was full of local small shops and when EMI was open and employing local people, when we had hope.
It is time for a change. I’m writing to you as the only locally born and educated candidate on your ballot paper. I was born in Hillingdon, met my wife and settled down in Hayes and now live in Cowley.
I was here before politics. I will be here long after, in our community.
UKIP won in the European elections and we beat the Conservatives in parts of Hayes last year in the locals. I can stop Labour and be your voice in Westminster to control immigration, get an EU Referendum, defend our NHS and invest a further £3bn more into the service from our EU contributions. I want to stop spending money on foreign aid and instead see that we look after our armed forces and pensioners.
These are the priorities of the majority of the British people. They’re my priorities too.
Locally, I want Hayes cleaned up and proper repairs made to council properties. I want to see more Police on the beat. I want to defend our green belt and make sure local families are prioritised for social housing and school places. You and your family come first.
When you vote, remember you’re voting for who you want to represent you and stand up for you in Parliament. I can be your voice, a UKIP voice who will make our local issues national priorities. But I can only do this with your help. Please lend me your support and together we can turn Hayes and West Drayton around.
