Yesterday our Party Leader, George Reid, shared a video around Commonwealth Veterans and how one is currently facing a significant NHS bill as he is not classed as 'British'.
We understand that the Under-Secretary of State in his role at the Office of Veterans' Affairs has contacted this specific v...
We actually have Brexit!
Promise made promise kept, well done Boris!
Boris you also need to stick to your promise about the persecution of Armed Forces Veterans who served in Northern Ireland. These cases have been brought to appease terrorists who targeted those very same individuals o...
I am so very pleased to see two excellent candidates standing in the upcoming General Election for the Veterans And People’s Party!
Mark and Dave are standing in targeted areas where we believe as a party that we have a good chance of making a difference.
The NEC, candidates team and members have been working tirelessly to get the right candidates out there spreading our name!
Over the past month our candidates team and NEC have put in so much time and effort to ensure that our candidates will hit the ground running!
Mark in Linlithgow & East Falkirk and Dave in Great Yarmouth have a real opportunity to make history and put the party on the map, to carry the torch for others to follow and light a beacon for the people to come to.
I am sure that you will all support both in the coming weeks and do everything that you can to spread the word and to also wish Dave and Mark all the very best for the future.
Brought up in Glasgow and Manchester I was one of the potential 5 million unemployed. When I left school in the early 80's, rather than go down that potential road I decided to join the army at the tender age of 15yrs and 11months as a junior soldier in the Royal Green Jackets where I served for 14yrs. On leaving I started working in the communications sector subsequently meeting my wife who I married in 1998. I have 5 children 3 grandchildren and 4 dogs.
In my spare time I enjoy watching my 2 younger sons play rugby for Lowestoft and Yarmouth RUFC and football with Lowestoft Town u16 academy. I really enjoy being a granddad and getting my own back on my kids by teaching the grandchildren annoying things.
I believe that an MP has to be approachable, local and actually listen. I will be community MP rather than a career politician. As a public servant I will listen and take action at all levels including liaising and having monthly meetings with Parish, Borough and county councillors.
My office will be open for all charities to use as a drop in service for advice and help. I will also engage with the local St Johns Ambulance to organise first aid training on Saturdays this will be open to anyone in the borough any costings / donations for their time will come out of my own pocket and not the public purse. Living in the borough you will see me out and about when not in parliament in my constituency office or working for you in and around the borough.
Paul Sweeny MP recently spoke out in Parliament about Veterans who commit suicide. The interest in Parliament was once again subdued, as it always is when veterans’ affairs are discussed. The general lack of interest shown by current Members of Parliament is typical of a government that doesn’t...
