Election statement:


I’m Liverpool born and bred. I achieved a 1st at Cambridge University before working in Finance. I was an amateur boxing champion and live with my family in Toxteth. I recently stood in the Liverpool mayoral elections. I am a committed Christian. 

I want to be the new police and crime commissioner because I believe it is time for transparency in policing. It is your money the police are spending and it is to you they should be directly answerable. I will make sure the Police respond to your concerns first and foremost. Having spoken to the people of Merseyside I hear your voices loud and clear. You want an accountable police force.  You want protection of person and property; frontline policing as a priority, with more ‘bobbies on the beat’ and fewer behind desks. Burglary and anti-social behaviour will be tackled hard. You want zero tolerance of illegal drugs. You have no time for political correctness. Police will be recruited on merit alone and the St George’s Flag will be flown above police stations at all times.  No minority group will be shown favouritism. I will challenge and tackle political policing, root and branch. You want traditional, no nonsense policing firm, but respecting our liberties and privacy. I will speak for the people of Merseyside not toe a party line.

Hillsborough has shown how important police accountability is, I want lessons to be learnt from that tragedy.  We want justice for all and no hiding place for criminals.

50% of my salary will be given to the Hillsborough Justice Campaign.

In tough times let us support our Police as we all work together to uphold the highest standards.
