General Election 24: Reform set out their stall in Staple Tye

Elections / Fri 14th Jun 2024 at 08:22am

REFORM UK continue to campaign around the town in the run up to the General Election.

The candidate, Malcolm Featherstone will not be bouyed by recent opinion polls that put Reform UK ahead of the Conservatives.

Malcom said: “We had a street stall on Wednesday in Staple Tye with a continual stream of visitors and very positive support.

‘So many people completely fed-up with, and lacking trust in, the duopoly of the two main parties.

We don’t have the resources of the two main parties, but we are out leafleting every day and running street stalls at least twice a week, so if you haven’t seen us yet hopefully you will soon.

“Our local membership has nearly doubled in the past two weeks, and we’re continually getting new members wanting to help campaign. We have the momentum!”

Good luck to him. Whilst the Conservatives haven't been too shabby on the council under Dan Swords, there's no way I can vote for them nationally. Labour are clueless, but are certain to win. We need a decent opposition to the socialists, and Reform is 100% best placed for that role. Join the revolt!

Reform suggesting they are an alternative to the Conservatives but if they do well in this election I bet they will jump into bed with them in 5 years.

Reform's policies on the self-employed and for small and medium enterprises look interesting on the face of it, but I suspect the cost of them will soon mean they are reined in. Worth a look at though. See https://www.reformparty.uk/economy-business

Reform's healthcare policies should interest struggling BnHS staff with their commitment to: "Zero basic rate income tax for front line health & social care staff". For the aspiring middle classes they have: "Tax relief of 20% on all independent healthcare & insurance."

Tax is not the issue, it is what is done with it that is the real issue. Getting fed up with people banging on tax, don't mind paying a bit more tax if it was put back into our schools, nhs, infrastructure. The money to run this country has to come from somewhere and I'd rather that than keep raiding the poorest by the way of cuts or not investing in things we all need til they break.

Most of Reforms policies come from the UKIP 2015 manifesto that was so widely admired. I know, I stood for Election on it! The Housing Policy was also admired by the Chartered Surveyors as the only one that tackled the issues. The UKIP NHS policy was even supported by GP magazine. Have a look at the UKIP manifesto, and our Harlow Connected Leader and Parliamentary Candidate Lois Perry. Mark Gough - Harlow UKIP

Mark, will you stop desperately trying to hang on to Reform's coat tails while flogging the UKIP dead and fossilised horse? You fluffed it, live with it. As to your "Harlow connected" leader, Essex Girl (gamma-minus version) Lois is going to have a whale of a time at the hustings explaining how she published on June 4 UKIP were giving way to Reform wherever it mattered but on June 6 announced UKIP were trying to spoil Nigel's chances in Clacton. Of course, we know she's just a clueless puppet. Which you are incapable of grasping, lol!

@Mark Gough - yes, UKIP policies were so 'widely admired' weren't they?! Hence the huge success they were haaaaa. I would love to live in the fantasy land you do, must be fun.

Ah, Jonathan Pie made me laugh with this one today. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LwIa70EDZjE Sense of humour failure am sure for many a reform fan!

2024-06-14 14:59:35

TURKEY, I expect you will also be voting for Christmas

2024-06-14 16:05:05

Trev . Nice one

2024-06-14 16:17:32

Reform all the way. Go for it.

That's a photo that lacks diversity, says it all about Reform. Keep taking those Tory votes!

Trace is completely correct about taxation. The Tories gave away £8bn during Covid to support business without doing a basic check on whether the business had actually ever posted business accounts! We need more accountability over where our taxes are being spent so I for one do not want to pay more tax until we know where it will be spent.

@AB - do you have something against white men?

2024-06-14 18:38:02

@Jim, don't be so facetious.

So much fun to see the extremists attack each other, UKIP v Reform. Keep it up!

When you have a right wing party such as Reform who reject multiculturalism, hate what this country has become in terms of its diversity, don't understand what "net-zero" is or what the word "woke" actually means, you need some moderate voices in the centre ground to combat their narrative.

Reform's plan is to bankrupt the country so no one wants to come and live here. Their manifesto/'contact' will turn the UK into a third world country.
