At a packed hustings meeting in Waterbeach on 27 October, members of the constituency Labour party chose their prospective parliamentary candidate for South East Cambridgeshire. After a terrific contest between four excellent potential candidates, James Bull was chosen as the PPC.
After his selection, James said: “South East Cambridgeshire is my home; this is where I was born and grew up and where I now live with my wife and daughter. I care passionately about this community and I know where we are suffering the most. The single mum who has to take four buses just to get to work. The debt-ridden former-student working three minimum wage jobs just to cover the rent. The widow who can’t sleep at night for worrying about how she’ll pay her care home fees.”
James continued: “There are huge issues that need addressing after nearly ten years of austerity under the Tories, in coalition with the Liberal Democrats for half of that time. The housing crisis in our community – something I have expertise in from my years in local government. The deep cuts to our local services, particularly public transport, GP surgeries, social care and schools. And, of course, Brexit. Labour’s commitment to a peoples’ vote on any final deal is the only way that we can heal the wounds caused by the Tories’ desire for a Hard Brexit that will only benefit the super rich. Labour’s policies offer the people of South East Cambridgeshire genuine hope. I cannot wait to get out on the campaign trail when an election is called and deliver our message of a better future to our community; in the meantime I will be out talking to voters as always conveying Labour’s positive message.”
