Broxtowe’s strong independent voice in Parliament
Working hard for Broxtowe

Forward Forward
Hello again,
The nominations have closed and I am honoured to have been nominated by people from the three main parties as well as independents and leave supporters in Broxtowe. Thank you to everyone who has pledged their support and offered to help my campaign to be re-elected as your MP. 
It will be a tough fight as I am up against the two main parties but with your support I can win. Please let me know if you can help. 
I am also honoured to have the full backing of my friend and neighbour Ken Clarke as well as former Labour MPs, notably my friends Joan Ryan, Chris Leslie, Mike Gapes and Ann Coffey.
The choice in Broxtowe is either Jeremy Corbyn's man and keenest supporter, Boris Johnson's man who will always do his bidding, or me.
I have never been a tribal politician and have always worked on a cross party basis. I believe we need strong, independent voices in Parliament and if re-elected I will continue to withstand the abuse and threats and work hard in the interests of everyone in Broxtowe.
I do also have some non-election news so please read on!
Have a great weekend,
As ever,
I am honoured that Stan Heptinstall MBE has proposed me; Stan was a long serving Lib Dem Councillor in Bramcote and Stapleford. Former Chair of Broxtowe Conservatives, Simon Tonks has also nominated me.
Precious Aidoo has always voted Labour and she is one of a number of life long Labour voters who have pledged their support along with Leave supporter Harry Fitch from Stapleford. 
Yvette Lamb is a Labour voter who has pledged her support and I am seconded by Sarah Harker from Awsworth. . 
My political hero, Ken Clarke, has written to me pledging his support and endorsing me. The Conservative Party in effect expelled Ken and other One Nation Conservatives as the party has been gripped by the right. Meanwhile, Professor Sir Martyn Poliakoff, who has supported Labour for many years, bumped into me last weekend in Beeston, demanded a photograph and pledged his support! I am honoured and grateful to them both. 

M&S store to open next summer at Giltbrook

Marks and Spencer has announced its new store at the Giltbrook Retail Park will open next summer with 150 new jobs. The opening will be a real boost to the site which has lost a few retailers. There will be concerns that the poor traffic system in the area will be made worse and the much needed and radical solution is no nearer. You may remember my efforts over the years to get the relevant authorities together. If re-elected I will escalate that work to include further development along the A610 with a pay off of reconfiguring the Ikea roundabout and A610 junction.

Stapleford bid for town centre investment

The Government has replied to my letter asking for details of how Stapleford can bid for up to £25 million. The Towns Fund is a mix of existing and new tax payers money and largely replaces the loss of EU funding for social projects in the UK. Broxtowe Borough Council will lead the bid and must create a Towns Deal Board by the end of Jan 2020 and a Town Investment Plan by next summer. It's critical that Stapleford residents are involved as well as local businesses of all sizes. 
I was a co-recipient of the Political Studies Association's "Courage Award". Luciana Berger, who left the Labour Party earlier this year after horrific anti-semitic abuse, also received the award and together we attended Tuesday evening's ceremony in London. Read more here.
