• You can see a report on Monday's Mayoral Hustings at the Princess Theatre over on the UKIP Torbay website (HERE). Should you be interested, my opening statement is reproduced below. We were required to speak for no more than two minutes:

    Opening Statement for Torbay Business Forum/Herald Express Mayoral Hustings - 14 April 2015

    It’s ten years since I last stood on this stage as a mayoral candidate. I’d love to be able to say that things have improved for everyone in the Bay in that time.

    However, it is staggering just how little has been achieved. Yes, we’ve got a new road, but what has yet been done to maximise its potential for inward investment? Yes, we’ve had a few nice developments, but they’re mostly centred around our seafronts. Take a few footsteps back in each town, and everything has got worse.

    It needn’t be like that. A new mayor could make a major positive difference to the whole of the Bay.

    What I would bring to the role is real democracy and a new social fairness, clearly demonstrating in every single decision – all made in public and with the support of a accountable cabinet - that I really have been listening to the people whose lives are affected by the council’s decisions.

    In short, I would be a mayor whose success would be entirely based on the close relationship that I have with residents, business and – indeed – visitors.

    I published my manifesto four months ago. It has been receiving a hugely positive response because it is not just a series of slogans or fantasies, but is a comprehensive and worked out plan of action to improve everyone’s life here.

    It illustrates how I believe we cannot talk about one thing in isolation – everything is connected.

    So in Blueprint for a Better Bay, my proposals encompass the whole range of council services, as well as how those services should be delivered – all tailored specifically to our Bay’s needs.

    You won’t get any party political waffle from me.

    I’m known for being straight-talking. So here it is straight: what you will get from me is action, hard work, honesty, openness, and a loud, proud and constant refrain about what a wonderful place the Bay is to live, work and visit.
