Rick Middleton, chair of Bosworth Constituency Labour Party and father-of-one, lives in Hinckley and runs his own web consultancy business.
Mr Middleton said, “I am standing to be the next MP for Bosworth as a local, positive and credible choice.”
“I come from a working class background and believe that MPs must better represent the people that they serve. “
“The last thing Hinckley & Bosworth needs, heading into such a crucial time for our country, is yet another entitled parachutist from outside the area representing them in parliament.“
“I have lived and worked in the area my whole life; I went to the local schools here, I worked locally in Barwell and Earl Shilton as a knitwear designer before setting up my own business and spending some time in the rural village of Barlestone.”
“My strong local roots and understanding of our constituency make me an effective representative for the area.”
“I have already campaigned across the constituency to save our NHS and to keep local services like Barwell Sure Start centre and Hinckley and District Hospital from closure. As an MP I would champion local services and fight for high quality well-paid jobs and investment in the area.”
“Voters have a choice between yet another Conservative MP from outside the area or a hard-working and effective local Labour MP.”
“The Liberal Democrats finished third in the last general election despite trying to convince voters it was a two-horse race between themselves and the Conservatives. They are running the same campaign with the same candidate yet again.”
“A Labour government would properly fund the NHS, invest in our local communities and tackle climate change by introducing a green industrial revolution.”
