Key Priorities

Following the election, I have restated my key priorities for Dover & Deal:

  • A proper hospital for Dover (with care beds and doctor led emergency services) and more services at Deal Hospital;
  • More jobs and money seeking a stable Government for the nation, JobCentre access in Deal and making regeneration a reality for all. Dover is not just the Gateway to England - it could be the Jewel in the Crown of our nation;
  • Safeguard the Port of Dover and fight to make sure the nation's border remains in the nation's hands;
  • Safer streets and secure borders campaigning for zero tolerance beat based policing, and to keep the front line immigration officers who work so hard to keep our nation safe;
  • Transport better trains for Deal and the villages and much needed road upgrades like the A2 dualling.

To be elected to serve the people of Dover and Deal is the greatest of honours. I will work tirelessly to deliver the things we need for our community. It won't be easy - we have been sold so far down the river that we are now feet from the waterfall on many issues.

To turn things around will be very hard. And I do realise that few think I will succeed.  But that won't stop me trying - and you never know, I might even get to pull the odd rabbit out of a hat!
