Today is your day. The day that you get the Government that you deserve, and I don’t mean that unkindly. That cross in the box also determines who represents you in your area for the next five years.
In Ilford North the voters that I’ve spoken to are clear what and who they want and why. They are tired of Labour and will be voting Conservative.
Last night I met with some concerned people in my constituency who want an end to the anti-social behaviour in their area of Ilford North.
I was able to share the good news about a project called Open Door which occupies a shopfront in Barkingside. It’s a charity that’s had grants from Conservative-lead Redbridge Council.
It’s somewhere to go for the young people who otherwise have nothing to do. Since it’s opened complaints about noise, litter and intimidation have dropped. The young people say they finally got somewhere to gather which offers them stimulating activities.
If I’m honoured to be re-elected then we’re going to look at how the success of that project can be replicated in other parts of the constituency.
This is a good example of how local issues are dominating the national agenda. Voters want to know how their MP will connect national policies to create local solutions.
The Conservatives want to see a better quality of life for British people, it’s an underpinning principle. It’s what matters on the doorsteps of Ilford North.
Make a difference and vote Conservative today.
Lee Scott is the Conservative candidate for Ilford North.
