Dear Voter, you will soon be casting your vote...

You will soon be casting your vote for the General Election on 7th May. It will be one of the most important general elections in British history.
There are very big differences between the parties. I believe the British public will reject parties of division, incompetence and uncertainty. The majority have always voted for moderate, compassionate and progressive values and ideas. These are the qualities the Liberal Democrats brought to government. Voting for me is a vote for those values.
I'm George Cunningham and I'm your Liberal Democrat candidate for North Thanet constituency, including Margate, Herne Bay, Birchington, Westgate, Minster and Sarre.
I've been a soldier in the British Army, worked for two of Britain's most successful global companies, run a charity and been a United Nations and European diplomat. I know how to bring new investment, jobs and opportunities to Thanet and Herne Bay.
I've worked hard all my life to serve my family and my country. I've also known unemployment. I know how it feels to need work. Like you, I live in the real world.
For too long the local political establishment has sat on its hands. They've had their time.
If you elect me to Parliament, I will be your champion.
  • I will fight to keep the NHS free and fight to end Tory reforms. The Lib Dems have pledged to commit £8 billion to the NHS if we are in coalition again. Your vote can help that.
  • I will fight for jobs - for young people and older people struggling to find a new job. I will fight for the interests of small businesses - like shops in towns and village centres which should play a role in the local economy as important as big places like Westwood Cross.
  • I will fight for pensioners. fight for social justice.
  • I will fight to bring new investment, new technologies and new businesses, welcoming companies from the rest of the UK, from continental Europe and further afield, just like I did by bringing potential Taiwanese investors to Manston Airport last year.
North Thanet is ideally placed to succeed. It is on the doorstep of the world's biggest free and open market - the European Union. Over 500 million people who want to buy food from Kent and products and services from our local businesses. A market of over 500 million for tourism in Thanet and Herne Bay.
I will bring all my experience of business and the European Union to bear on improving the local economy. YOU NEED A CHAMPION, NOT A EUROSCEPTIC SPECTATOR.
The Liberal Democrats are proud of their record in government. We stood up for the ordinary families of Britain.
And the Lib Dems have stopped the Tory party from destroying our public services.
The Lib Dems have taken tough decisions to help get Britain back to growth.
The Conservatives have not succeeded in Thanet. In fact, they have failed. The area has experienced decline relative to the rest of Kent. It has often been ignored. Now is the time for the people to speak. Now is the time to say enough is enough and to vote for a better future.
Allow me to be your MP. Make me your choice, for your postal vote and on Thursday 7th May. And contact me on gfjcunningham@gmail.com if you want to join our endeavour.
Yours faithfully,
George Cunningham ImageVOTE George Cunningham X
