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.

What Conservatives will do for Britain

The country faces a choice between five more years of Gordon Brown or change with the Conservatives. If you vote for change, we will:

1. Act now on debt and get the economy moving
We will deal with the deficit more quickly than Labour so that mortgage rates stay lower for longer

2. Get Britain working by boosting enterprise
Cut corporation tax, abolish taxes on the first ten jobs created by new businesses, promote green jobs and get people off welfare and into work

3. Make Britain the most family-friendly country in Europe
Freeze council tax and raise the basic state pension, recognise marriage in the tax system and back coupes in the benefits
system, support young families with extra health visitors and fight
back against crime

4. Back the NHS
Increase spending on health every year and make the NHS work for patients and managers

5. Raise standards in schools
Give teachers the power to restore discipline and create new smaller schools

6. Change politics
Reduce the number of MPs, cut Whitehall and quangos by a third and let texpayers see where their money is being spent
