Theresa May's vision for the future economic partnership between the United Kingdom and the European Union.

The Fight Against Cancer

Last weekend saw the annual Crawley Race For Life take place in Tilgate Park. Raising money for Cancer Research UK, this event sees hundreds of women take part in either a 5k or 10k race to raise money for the fight against cancer. Last year’s event saw almost 2,000 women raise nearly £100,000. I congratulate everyone who took part at the weekend and I was pleased to sponsor a runner who very sadly had lost a friend to cancer at far too young an age.

Supporting the NHS

I have long taken the view that ideally as a country, we should be able to produce the doctors and nurses that we need. However in reality, we haven’t been able to so for decades and it has been hardworking doctors and nurses from abroad who have ensured that we haven’t had major shortages in our health service.

The Need to Revitalise our Town Centre

Our economy continues to perform well under the Conservatives but we should never take a healthy economy for granted. Doing so is possible when we’ve had eight years of economic growth with our economy now being 17% larger than in 2010. My expectation is it will be when we as a country do take a strong economy for granted, that we end up with the next Labour Government. Of course, those of us with long memories know what will then mean for our economy.
