If you care about lifting the poor into prosperity, vote Conservative

6 May 2010 Dear Chief Secretary, I’m afraid there is no money. With regards – and good luck! Labour Chief Secretary to the Treasury Liam Byrne’s note to his Conservative successor. That was Labour’s legacy to the Conservative-led coalition government of 2010: “I’m afraid there is no money.” It’s always the same: Labour promise great things for the poor, then fail, wreck the economy and leave unemployment higher than they inherited. To explore their recent record of failure, even in […]

Why we back Boris’ Brexit Deal

It’s been an extremely difficult 18 months in British politics but the Conservatives have a Brexit deal which will lead to a great future under a majority Conservative government. This leaflet describes Boris’ new Brexit deal, provides a before and after comparison, and includes a letter from me and Mark Francois, setting out why we and Conservative Eurosceptic MPs backed the deal before Parliament was dissolved. The UK will become an independent country with a broad and constructive relationship with […]

Keeping our streets safe

It is the Prime Minister’s priority to make our streets safer. We are hiring 183 more police officers for Thames Valley Police by the end of 2020-21 as part of our target to recruit 20,000 more police officers over the next three years to cut crime and keep people safe.  We will give them the powers, kit and backing they need – like extending their powers to stop and search and reviewing sentences so that we can keep serious criminals […]

Political promises about A&E at Wycombe Hospital

Update: Many thanks to the national journalists who have taken an interest in this story. As I replied to Adam Boulton earlier: No. I’d *love* a full modern emergency department in #Wycombe. Of course. But please read the articles. — Steve Baker (@SteveBakerHW) November 19, 2019 At each election I have contested since 2010, every other candidate has always said they will get A&E back to Wycombe Hospital. This election appears to be no different.   But Wycombe already has an […]

Conservatives are strengthening our NHS

In Wycombe, we are proud of the improvements our local NHS staff have delivered since 2010. By keeping our economy strong we’ve been able to support our NHS since 2010. That’s why we are providing the biggest cash boost in the history of the NHS and the Prime Minister is making it his immediate task to ensure that people start seeing this funding in their local GP surgeries and local hospitals. This will make a real difference to the lives of NHS staff and patients in […]

Thank you for voting Conservative

Post Image

[This is broadly what I said at the count in High Wycombe on 8 May: I did not have a script and a recording was not taken.] It is a privilege and joy to be re-elected to represent Wycombe in Parliament. I am grateful to the electors of Wycombe for sending me back. It is humbling to see the ballot papers laid out at the end of the count. Not just because I see now how many people have placed their trust […]

Our plan is getting Britain back to work

Post Image

Via Share the Facts, Getting Britain back to work: Creating jobs is at the heart of our plan, and the plan is working – with employment now at an all-time high. Over 1,000 jobs have been created every day since 2010 – and there are now 2 million more people in work. Every new job means someone taking home a pay packet and able to provide for their families. That’s why it’s so important that we stick with the plan that’s working, and build […]

We will get the deficit down: Ed Miliband and the SNP will just keep borrowing

Post Image

Via Share the Facts: Labour left Britain with a record peacetime deficit, and a note that read: “there is no money”. But since 2010 we’ve been working through a plan to get Britain back to living within its means. And that plan is working – with the deficit now reduced by a half as a share of our economy – and we’ll clear it in the next Parliament. In stark contrast, the Institute for Fiscal Studies – Britain’s most respected […]
