Jo Waltham - Liberal Democrat
As a small business owner, web developer, wife and mother, I'm not what you'd call a typical politician, but I understand the local issues that matter most to you.
I live and work in Marlborough, my two children go to the local secondary school, as a family we use all the same public services as you. It is my belief that our government will only make the best decisions for all when we have normal working people in Parliament, not just career politicians stuck in the Westminster bubble.
In the last nine years, we have endured massive cuts to all of our public services. It seems that working hard is no longer a guarantee of a warm home to live in, food on the table, health, and social care when you need them, and a good education for your children. No matter what Johnson or Farage claims, Brexit will not fix any of this. It will only make matters worse, remove environmental and worker protections and deliver a more divided nation. They won’t ‘get Brexit done’, there will be many more years of uncertainty and wrangling.
We need to stop Brexit and invest in our future instead. Stopping Brexit will boost our economy and give us the money to deliver the public services we need.
Many of you did not get the opportunity to vote in the previous referendum or may have voted leave but have seen the damage that Brexit is doing to our country. Now you have a chance to make yourself heard and change our direction before it is too late. Demand Better. Vote Liberal Democrat.
