NEIL LEWIS WELCOMES LIBERAL DEMOCRATS PLEDGE TO INCREASE SCHOOLS’ FUNDING IN WORCESTERSHIRE

Lib Dems will invest £30,637,922 to protect school funding in Worcestershire

Children are being taught in overcrowded classes by overworked teachers – but Theresa May doesn’t care.

While funding per pupil is set to see the biggest cuts in a generation, billions of pounds are being spent on divisive plans to expand grammars and free schools. This extra £7 billion of funding would ensure no school and no child loses out.

We will reverse crippling Conservative cuts to school budgets and invest to ensure every child has the opportunity to succeed.

A landslide for the Conservatives would allow Theresa May to take parents across the country for granted and cut our schools to the bone.

Let’s change direction. Let’s change the opportunities for our children and let’s Change Britain’s Future.

Introducing Neil Lewis, Parliamentary candidate for Bromsgrove

 

Dear Resident

Two years ago I wasn’t involved in politics.

After the 2015 election, I joined the Liberal Democrats to change the way we do politics in Britain. To change the outcomes we receive; the economy, our prosperity, our freedoms and our essential public services.

So it is an incredible privilege to be working in Bromsgrove and asking you to choose me as your parliamentary representative. I’ve met many wonderful and supportive people and I’m looking forward to meeting as many people as possible in the next few weeks.

My background is as a scale up entrepreneur – as I often say to people, my job is to solve problems and sometimes I get paid. I learnt that nothing good comes without hard work and a little bit of inspiration. I have learnt that to succeed, you need to be brave and you need, above all, to believe that what you do will make a real difference to people. I offer my spirit of optimism, of energy and drive and the desire to make a difference, to the people of Bromsgrove.

I believe we need a new politics in Britain and it is time that Bromsgrove was noticed by the political elite. We need a new, centralist approach to the challenges and issues that we all face. I do know that ideological hatred of the EU is both wrong but also foolish for the damage it will do to our economy.

Of course, I would say that, for my wife is German and her German father came to Britain in the 1970s when we were the sick man of Europe. For 20 odd years he led German investment in Siemens UK, building it into a critically important UK company which employs thousands of British people in Worcester, the West Midlands, across the UK and which trades around the world.

I also know that to raise our wages and to pay real living wages, as well as fully fund our public services, we have a choice; we can either seek to take money from someone else, as Corbyn or May would have us do, or we can grow our economy so that businesses and organisations can afford to pay good wages which, in turn, increases tax receipts for public services.

That’s why I’m putting membership of the Single Market at the heart of my campaign and if elected I will do everything in my power to maintain our immediate economic interests and avoid a decade of lost growth and prosperity.

We have been gifted a unique opportunity to change Britain’s direction on 8th June. Let’s seize the moment.

I stand for a different kind of politics. I support the Liberal Democrat values of openness, tolerance and unity. And, with your help, I will work to Change Britain’s Future.

Neil
