Re-elect Anna Soubry

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

Hello again,
I very much hope you will vote for me tomorrow. 

It's clear many people have yet to make up their mind. Many constituents are adamant they don't want Jeremy Corbyn in No 10 and there are as many who are vehemently opposed to the return of Boris Johnson. 

You do have a choice. By voting for me tomorrow you are choosing a genuine alternative that can keep both extremes out and be a voice of moderate, progressive centrist politics in Parliament, and represent everyone in Broxtowe. 

I've stood up to the abuse and threats, been true to my principles and have enjoyed working hard for everyone in Broxtowe. 

I am the only candidate nominated by and backed by people of all party political persuasions and none. I am proposed by Lib Dem, Stan Heptinstall, and seconded by Green, Sarah Harker, from Awsworth. I have been nominated by lifelong Labour voters - some former members of the party - and the same is true of lifelong Conservatives such as Simon Tonks, a former Chair of Broxtowe Conservative Association. I have also been supported by Leave voters like Harry Fitch from Stapleford.

Tactical voting sites like Best for Britain and People's Vote are urging supporters to vote for me as the candidate who is best placed to stop a hard Brexit. 

With good reason, people don't want Jeremy Corbyn as Prime Minister and don't want to vote for his candidate in Broxtowe, one of his biggest supporters. Corbyn's candidate has failed to call out the anti-semitism and extremism in the Labour Party which has driven out decent, moderate MPs and members. The growing personal attacks on me by Labour's candidate and his supporters are unpleasant and unworthy of someone who seeks to be your MP. Corbyn's man in Broxtowe admits he is "desperate" to be an MP and that is increasingly obvious with his sudden claim to be a staunch Remainer. Yet he stubbornly refuses to sign the Labour Remain Pledge that bears the signatures of so many moderate Labour MPs who, like me, have been on the People's Vote marches and rallies. 

I reckon as many people can't abide Boris Johnson and fear him having a majority. In his time as Prime Minister, he has effectively expelled decent, moderate Conservatives, like Ken Clarke who is publicly backing my re-election. Johnson again demonstrated his lack of empathy and common decency this week. His candidate in Broxtowe has shown he will always do Johnson's bidding. The Conservative candidate has also shown a lack of compassion and understanding of both national and local issues. He has, understandably, lost the support of some of the local Association's most loyal activists who have now pledged to vote for me. Such is his loyalty to Boris Johnson and his right wing take over of the Conservative Party, he would even vote for the hard, no-deal Brexit that voters were promised would never occur. 

There is so much more I want to do in Broxtowe as your MP. We must secure HS2 at Toton Sidings, ensure Stapleford is the main beneficiary town and that the excellent Neighbourhood Plan for Toton, Chilwell Meadows and Chilwell gets the go ahead. I will campaign for all of the above, as well as the delivery of HS2 by the way of a bored tunnel.

Our children are our future and must receive the best education in buildings fit for purpose. Getting our fair share of new school builds will be a critical priority if I'm re-elected.

There is no debate in my opinion about the crisis in our social care system. Throughout my time in Parliament, I have always worked on a cross party basis. More than ever, we need to take that approach to a radical reform of social care and to the biggest issue we face - climate change. If we are to tackle the climate change crisis (there was more evidence yesterday of the sharp escalation of melt of the Greenland ice sheet) then we will not only require tough action from national and local Government but we will all need to make changes in our own lives. The best way to achieve all that, is by building consensus on an all party basis. 

What you see is what you get with me - hard work, courage and principles.

I very much hope you will re-elect me tomorrow.

As ever,
Vote tomorrow 
The polls open at 7am and close at 10pm. 
If you haven't sent off your Postal Vote - you can take it to your polling station tomorrow.

5 great reasons to #VoteSoubry 
1. I will continue to work hard for everyone in Broxtowe, as I have done for the last 9 years as your MP.

2. I will continue to stand up to the abuse and threats from the extremists who are poisoning our politics, further dividing our country and destroying British values of tolerance and compassion. I will continue to speak truth to power.

3. I am the only candidate supported by people of all political persuasions who recognise the work I have done as your MP and the need to have strong, principled and moderate politicians in Parliament. I will continue to represent all my constituents and be your voice in Parliament.

4. I am backed by More United, Best for Britain and People's Vote. The latter two urge people in Broxtowe to vote tactically for me.

5. If re-elected, I will campaign for HS2 at Toton sidings with the route delivered by a tunnel, campaign for new school buildings in Broxtowe, work cross party for radical reform of social care and to take action to halt the climate change crisis.
The Lib Dems have stood aside for me in Broxtowe and former Parliamentary Candidate Stan Heptinstall MBE has proposed me; Stan was a long serving Lib Dem Councillor in Bramcote and Stapleford and was Mayor of Broxtowe. My friend Ken Clarke has also declared his support kindly saying he has "always been a huge admirer of her efforts as the MP representing Broxtowe... I will be delighted if she is returned to the next Parliament."  I am touched and honoured to have their support. 
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 former Green voter Sarah Harker from Awsworth. 
I am so pleased Simon Tonks, former Chair of Broxtowe Conservatives, has pledged me his support. Professor Sir Martyn Poliakoff, who has previously voted Labour, is now voting for me in this General Election. You can read more about all those who have endorsed me here
I am a founding member of The Independent Group for Change. We are a group of former Labour and Conservative MPs who believe in moderate, centrist politics based on the traditions of social democratic Labour and One Nation Conservatives. We have prepared a document setting out our values, principles and core policies in the General Election. You can read it here.
