What kind of Brexit deal do you want and what do you think of my five-point Plan for Croydon?

Date Filed:  Thursday, April 27, 2017

We’ve decided we’re leaving the EU; what’s at stake at this election is what kind of Brexit deal we’re going to get. Every vote for Theresa May will strengthen her position in Parliament and therefore in the Brexit negotiations, helping her to get the best possible deal for Britain.

But what would a good deal look like? Last year’s referendum divided us: just over half of my constituents voted to Leave and just under half voted to Remain. Now we need to come together to agree what kind of Brexit we want, one that addresses the concerns that led people to vote Leave whilst reassuring those who wanted to Remain. Whether you originally wanted to leave or remain, I want to know what you would like to see in the Brexit deal. Everyone should have a say in this, whatever their views on the original decision.

This election isn’t just about Brexit, however. It’s also about whether you want Theresa May or Jeremy Corbyn as Prime Minister and me to continue as your MP. It’s been a privilege to represent my home town in Parliament for the last seven years, but there’s much more to do to make Croydon the place it could be. I want to hear your views about my five-point Plan for Croydon as well:

1. Make sure the Westfield/Hammerson redevelopment of the Whitgift Centre gets underway as soon as possible.

2. Increase the Living Wage so that people in low-paid jobs get a fairer reward for a hard day’s work.

3. Set up a Croydon Community Land Trust to build homes for people to buy at an affordable price - which they would have to sell at an affordable price when they moved, ensuring the homes remain affordable in perpetuity.

4. Improve our rail service, with more platforms at East Croydon, more frequent trains and a more reliable operator.

5. Take action to tackle the recent increase in knife crime in Croydon.
