Today, my election statement for the Bucks Free Press should appear in their pages as follows:
My goal for Wycombe is to enable everyone to flourish to their full potential. I want local people to be better off, with stronger bonds of friendship and community and greater control over political power and public services.
That is why I am proud to stand with Theresa May as your local Conservative candidate in the most important election in our lifetimes. Just 11 days after this election, negotiations with the EU will begin which will determine our place in the world and the basis of our prosperity for generations to come.
At this time, we need a government with the strength, stability and clarity to get the best deal for our country and to make the most of the opportunities before us.
We can and should emerge from this period of change both stronger and more prosperous than ever before, taking a new lead on today’s major issues. We will create a strong economy that works for everyone. We will achieve a new place in our changing world, building a society in which we can all advance as far as our talents allow. We will ensure fairness to people of all ages as we prepare our country to be prosperous and secure in the digital age.
Theresa May is not offering easy answers to complex problems. Conservatives are offering unity of purpose as we set about making this a better country where everyone has the economic security they need and the chance to live a secure and happy life.
