THE REFORM UK Party has announced that they will be fielding a candidate at the next General Election in Harlow
The election has to take place before January 28th 2025, with most pundits going for either May or October 2024.
The Reform UK candidate is Hatfield Heath resident Malcolm Featherstone.
YH met Mr Featherstone in Harlow Town Centre to find out a little bit more about him.
How do you compete with a far right tory party? You get ex ukip members and no policies and people who can't answer questions on politics and live miles away from the people they hope to vote for them. Democracy in action!!
This could make things harder for Robert Halfon. There is no doubt in my mind that the massive Brexit leave vote in Harlow was influenced by immigration, a problem which has got worse, something that plays into Reform's hands. Interesting to hear Malcolm's comments about Northern Ireland, a country which had leave foisted on them against their wishes. Dave Camelot, he is a local is he not? Will their motto be "The Tice is Right"
Hardly against their wishes, last time I looked northern Ireland was part of the UK, the vote was for the UK to leave the eu not part of it to leave.
You can't make up the rules after you lost which many think you can
Like it or not we've got Labour next. Until we have true reform (not what these guys are offering) will we see anything other than the big two.
So as a resident of Hatfield Heath, Malcolm Featherstone's main issue as Reform candidate for Harlow is Northern Ireland.
I will not be voting for them.The number one priority in my opinion is the local elections not the General election.You can't build a house without the footings, in other words local issues should be put first not national issues. I was going to stand in the local election for the reform party in next year's local elections but due to them not putting the local elections first, I'm not going to bother. And also in my opinion,The number one priority is the people of Harlow not the people of the entire county of Essex. But this doesn't mean that I will be voting for The Tories, Labour Liberal democrats or Greens.
far right tory party,you have to be joking dave,surely.Reform will get plenty of votes in the next genral election
