I have lived in Swindon all my life and was born, and grew up in Rodbourne Cheney. I am self-employed, am a student of History and have never been interested in becoming personally involved in politics before.
I am standing because someone needs to speak up for those whose lives and livelihoods have been destroyed by Lockdowns. Someone needs to ask the difficult questions; to risk being vilified for questioning whether such restrictions were justified. Someone needs to ask how we ensure measures voted as emergency powers do not set a precedent for the repeated or permanent removal of our rights and freedoms
Rather than the promised removal of all restrictions, there appears to be a push to add more. I believe the idea of any form of Health / Vaccine Passport is fundamentally wrong, and would both usher in a two-tier society, and be a serious threat to privacy, in a society where personal data is fast becoming currency.
No. I do believe however that ANY medical intervention should be a matter of choice. I would defend anyone's right to have the vaccine, however I would also defend anyone's right to refuse without sanction or coercion. That is, and must remain a fundamental right.
We can give Swindon a voice and a chance to be heard!
