PRESS RELEASE FROM THE LIBERAL DEMOCRATS

THE general election is just a few weeks away and the Liberal Democrats are putting up an experienced campaigner to contest the Rayleigh and Wickford constituency

Ron Tindall has spent many years as a local and county councillor and is a former trade union organiser. He will be attempting to unseat the sitting Conservative Member of Parliament when the country goes to the polls on June 8.

Tindall said yesterday: “I look forward to fighting for the Liberal Democrats in the Rayleigh and Wickford seat.

“I accept the result of the Brexit vote and am right behind our leader Tim Farron in his call for a second referendum on the terms of Brexit.

“The vote called for us to leave the EU but nobody voted for the Conservatives/UKIP hard Brexit which will leave our children and grandchildren in a mess for years to come”.

“This Tory government has done – and continues to do – untold damage to this country with their hard, right-wing policies. They must be challenged and challenged again to restore a caring and decent society that works for everyone – not just newspaper magnates and billionaires”.

“That being said, I am also aware that local issues are just as important. I’m very concerned by the proposed changes to the A&E departments at Southend, Basildon and Chelmsford hospitals while we need to upgrade the area’s over-congested road network. Health, education, housing and social care are also very high on my agenda.” 

From the age of 60, Tindall worked for six years earning a BA in history with first class honours from the Open University. It’s the same road travelled by other OU alumni such as actor Sir Lenny Henry, model Jerry Hall and actress Julie Christie.

He is a strong campaigner on the subject of domestic violence and will fight school budget cuts.
