On May 3rd, Helen Knight (Left) will be standing for the Ealing & Hillingdon constituency in the GLA (Greater London Assembly) elections. Here is her mission statement…..
I am an ordinary working Londoner who joined UKIP after being disillusioned by the main parties. I live in Ruislip and decided to run as the GLA candidate for Ealing and Hillingdon because UKIP offer a Fresh Choice for London . If elected to the London Assembly I intend to put pressure on the Mayor to oppose HS2. The Mayor has an influence on all major planning matters affecting London . I believe that local residents as well as Londoners as a whole deserve to have a voice of opposition to HS2 on the Assembly. Currently the 3 main parties support HS2 in one form or another, whereas UKIP doesn’t.
I worry about the effects that uncontrolled EU immigration has on our youngsters trying to find jobs, as well as the pressure immigration places on schools, transport and hospitals. I would make sure the issue of mass immigration is not avoided.
I am about to become a mum and I want my baby to grow up in a safe and secure city, the London Assembly needs people like me who aren’t afraid to demand zero tolerances on crime. I am standing as a candidate as I want the best for my family as does everyone else in London, whatever their background.
