General Election 2019
On Thursday the 12th of December I stood as the Libertarian Party Candidate in Stroud at the General election. I have always said that as a political party we needed to stand candidates to give the constituents a real choice. I was proved right on Thursday as I received 567 votes which I am extremely proud to have achieved. This result was from a standing start as although the Libertarian Party is a national entity we are new to Gloucestershire.
Whilst out campaigning I met lots of people who were genuinely interested in what I had to say about our policies and our positive plan for the future Governance of the UK. From our policy for a written constitution that makes you sovereign not Parliament to our health, education, defence, home affairs and all our other policies there is real interest.
I am honoured to have received the votes of the 567 Libertarian supporting people and I thank them for their support.
I would also like to thank all my colleagues in the party who helped with my campaign and to all my fellow Libertarian candidates; Dan Liddicott, Adam Brown, Andrew Kinsman and Sean Finch all true gentlemen.
We have a solid foundation to build on and I believe that we, the Libertarian Party have a bright future in Stroud and around the country.
The hard work starts here as we move forward and build our membership and our supporters so at the next General election there will be lots more Libertarian Party candidates standing in lots more seats up and down the country.
