General Election 2019: South Holland and the Deepings - Labour Mark Popple
Our country is at a cross-roads, and the choice at this election could not be clearer.
You have the choice as to whether you wish to be governed by a born-to-rule Conservative Party and their wealthy donors, or Labour, taking on the vested interests that are holding people back.
I am very proud to stand in this election as your Labour candidate for South Holland and the Deepings.
Having moved to the area as a baby, I attended Spalding Grammar School, before going to University to study a Law degree and a Masters in Political Science.
I returned to Spalding last year to buy my first property with my partner, to make my life here and to give something back to the community.
From speaking to people on the campaign-trail, it is clear that many feel we are being given a raw deal by this government, and that our area is being left behind.
People are tired of our roads and pavements going unrepaired, of the rising use of foodbanks, of the poor connectivity of our area through our substandard transport links, and are concerned about the impact of climate change to this constituency’s very existence in future.
Above all people are starting to feel that this area does not offer them or their children the opportunities they feel it should. As a local person who has grown up here, this pains me to the very core. It is not good enough, and things need to change.
You need a Member of Parliament who is going to fight for you.
A Member of Parliament who votes to protect funding for local government, who will promote legislation to rid us of the scourge of food banks, who will campaign for new green jobs to be brought to the area one who will campaign for greater quality rail and bus services to connect this constituency together properly.
As your Member of Parliament, I will be YOUR champion. Vote for Mark Popple and Labour on December 12.
