Candidates

Craig Pond

1. What do you plan to do in order to make sure you remain ‘in touch’ with the electorate?
Regular constituency clinics, website, e-mail and phone number. I want to hear from my constituents.
2. What makes you the best candidate for this constituency?
I’m independent, no-one pulls my strings, and I don’t lie or steal.
3. What has the current Member achieved that you believe has been successful?
We did an informal survey of 30 people in the pub, asking this question. The answers were; 28 didn’t know, 2 said it was her getting caught fiddling a flatscreen tv on her expenses.
4. In your opinion, is austerity working? What should we take from the state of the economy during this Government’s tenure?
Austerity is working perfectly on the poor, they’ve never been so badly off. The economy is being driven downward by one stupid decision after another. Refuse to pay back the loans that they say we owe, abolish the foreign aid budget, our immediate removal from the EU, and stop immigrants from claiming benefits, that’s how you fix the economy.
5. Does (legal) immigration need more limitations or is it vital for the UK?
Britains immigration policy should be round them all up, send them all back. It is absolutely disgusting that foreigners get in this country, while pensioners die by the thousands every year, armed forces personnel make up 10% of our homeless, and the best part of 2 million kids rely on foodbanks.
6. Many people are concerned about the cost of living in the UK, with wages having failed to rise in line with the price of food, energy and rent in recent years. How can this be corrected?
The cost of living can be controlled by; having British farms and food producers provide ALL of Britains food needs, stop cheap imports of inferior goods and support british farmers and manufacturers, have a greedy tax for companies and corporations that seek to profiteer.
7. How would you like to see the NHS change in the future in order to become more successful?
Staffed solely by British workers, not immigrants, and restructure the management design back to what it used to be and away from this common purpose scam.
8. What measures do you think need to be taken to decrease unemployment, particularly youth unemployment and those who have never been employed?
Rid Britain of all these third worlders, leave the EU in order to regain our independence, offer a higher tax free personal allowance so those on low pay are cut out of the tax bill. Changes to education and training, and the changing of priorities from profits to quality of life.
9. Does the lack of diversity in Parliament equate to a lack of representation?
There is far too much diversity in parliament! Foreigners have no right to take up places of power and influence within the British government. England needs its own parliament, and it should be staffed by the English only.
10 . If an EU Referendum were to take place, how would you encourage your constituents to vote and why?
Britain needs out of the EU. The unelected crooks of the EU are bleeding us dry- £65 million per day- and they have far too much influence in our daily lives, especially where the law is concerned. Britains stance should be love Europe, hate the EU.
