My Blog

As a political candidate, I get up to a fair few things and have a fair few views on developing political news in the UK. My blog here is the main way I can share that information in detail with you.

  • Tory Edits

    I have made a few edits of various Tory advertising posters or articles over the last year.  Here’s a selection: CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 85

  • ReformUK’s Economic Ineptitude

    The ReformUK party is not like every other political party. Originally the Brexit Party, the membership of this so-called political party is three individuals, namely Richard Tice, Tracy Knowles and Mehrtash A’Zami.  No-one else has voting rights for the structure, leadership or policies of the party.  As such, it is designed to be authoritarian in…

  • What do Liberal Democrats Stand For?

    A regular question asked is “What Do X Political Party stand for”.  For most parties, this can be summed up in a single phrase, but it can be more difficult for the Liberal Democrats.  So this article is about what the main political parties stand for. Conservatives What they stand for: rich people. I’m not…

  • Hillingdon MPs Vote Against Child Safety

    Yesterday saw an opportunity for MPs to do the right thing.  Somewhat predictably, both of our Conservative MPs, David Simmonds and Steve Tuckwell, voted against the opposition day “Safety of School Buildings” bill, along with most of the rest of the Conservative MPs in Parliament. This was a sad day for Hillingdon, with both of…
