Nick and Island Liberal Democrats

A few words from Nick:

" I am aware that I am walking in the footsteps of liberal political giants in running for the Isle of Wight. The Island's Liberal MP in the 1970s, Steve Ross, is a hard figure to live up to. Always running against the odds, the late Baron Ross of Newport always fiercely defended the Island in Parliament. I would do the same.

I believe the Island is a liberal place at heart because Islanders are independent minded. We do things differently. We don't take being for granted lightly. It's something I believe the other parties have always failed to take into account. The Tories and UKIP are banking on us being divided between 'remainers' or 'leavers'. Labour and the Greens argue it's 'left' versus 'right'. I'm not interested in dividing people by judging them on how they voted at a single referendum or how they believe public money should be spent. I see only Islanders.

I want Islanders to vote for me because I will do things differently. I am the first millennial (someone born broadly between 1988 and 2004) to run for Island MP. I have a fresh perspective compared to many of the jaded, grey faces that we see in Parliament. I will bring new ideas to turn back the sad state of decline that the Island finds itself in.

Help me fix the Island. Vote for me on June 8th."
