I would like to apologise to Edmund Fordham, the Independent candidate for South East Cambridgeshire, for a comment posted by myself on Twitter on 23rd November. I wrongly referred to him as the ex-UKIP candidate. I understand he has never had any association with UKIP. He was previously a Brexit Party PPC before becoming an Independent.
My thoughts on your priorities - for Education, the Environment and Health.
As part of their series of digital hustings podcasts, I was interviewed for the Ely Saying Something podcast organised by Ely Progressives. If you want to hear what I’m about, where I’m coming from, and why I want to be your MP, listen to my interview.
I am launching my petition today to highlight the savage school cuts this heartless Conservative government has made on our children's future. 83% of our schools nationwide still lose out next year because of this Government's school cuts to funding. Despite promises to increase funding, the detail shows they are falling short. The latest funding announcement falls well short of settling the shortfall for every child. Crucially it fails to reverse the cuts schools have suffered since 2015. As the crisis continues, we have the largest class sizes in the developed world. One in 8 secondary pupils are in classes with over 30 students. How can we expect children to learn and thrive in this environment? As a former teacher I am determined to ensure our schools in South East Cambridgeshire are fully funded. They should not have to make the difficult decision that Fulbourn Primary School did to close entirely for half a day a week. If you agree with me, sign my petition and join me to demand better for our schools. Continue reading
