Election statement:


English Democrats – “MORE POLICE, Catching Criminals!”

I am aged 53, married to Maria, living in Turves.  I run my own company and for the last five years I have run projects for a UK Police Force relating to IT systems, rosters, reporting and performance management. 

I have lived in Cambridgeshire since 1979 and was a City Councillor in Peterborough from 2002 to 2012.  I have been representing local people for over 10 years; my case file shows huge commitment to and success on behalf of those I represent.    


This election is about representation, not politics, but my membership of the English Democrats lets you know how I view the political landscape of the UK.  If elected I will:

  • Order the deployment of more officers on the front line (i.e. outside the police station) from April 2013 than were deployed in April 2012, and re-establish regular foot patrols in key areas. 
  • Apply a zero tolerance attitude by Cambridgeshire’s police force to petty crime and anti-social behaviour.
  • Ensure that Cambridgeshire police will target criminals, not target targets.  Motoring offences will be removed from crime figures so that the clear-up rate of real crime is clear. 
  • Lobby for realistic jail terms for offenders and more frequent use of jail, rather than community sentences. 
  • Ensure that Cambridgeshire Police officers are allowed to use their discretion to deal sensibly with minor disputes.  
  • Bring a strong business-like focus to the police and a common sense approach to administration. 
  • Ensure that Cambridgeshire Police drastically improve the performance of answering 101 and 999 calls.   Current performance is unacceptable and the number of abandoned calls is too high.

Please vote for me on November 15.
