Karen Allen

I fought South Shields at the May 2010 General Election for the Conservatives, gaining a 6.4% swing which was a 4% vote increase. The Conservatives polled 7,886 up from 5,207 in 2005. I was born in the North East and grew up in South Shields. I currently live in London and am employed as a Director at Lloyd's Broker Howden International.

The facts are clear:
ID cards won't prevent terrorist attacks
ID cards won't prevent illegal immigration
ID cards won't prevent identity fraud
ID cards won't prevent human trafficking
ID cards give the State too much personal data in one place

If that isn’t bad enough, ID cards will cost us each £93!!You can help us in a number of ways. Go to www.joinboris.com and fill in our petition against ID cards, but most importantly we want to hear from you. What would you do with yours?Send us your mobile phone clips or video camera clips to boris@joinboris.com. I will post them on our www.joinboris.com website before I post them on to Tony.If enough of us get together we can send a powerful message to Tony Blair, so please forward this email on to your friends and heed our call to arms! Email Boris on boris@joinboris.com with your thoughts.

Upminster Dinner with Boris Johnson

Upminster's Annual Dinner was a huge success with almost three times the number of attendees on last year, which I am sure is thanks to their securing the ever entertaining and bumbling Boris Johnson.

Boris gave a really good speech and spoke at length on the barriers and restrictions in our lives due to the Government's constant interfering. He was certainly an audience pleaser, I was just sorry he didn't join us on the Palms dance floor afterwards.
