WE DID IT, NOW IT'S TIME TO WORK TOGETHER

TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE

COMMUNITIES

WHY THEY'RE SO IMPORTANT

Whether Stanwell Moor or Stanwell BOTH sister communities have similar issues that I don't believe are being addressed by current representatives and Councillors - And this needs to change!

I never thought I'd be involved in politics but when I launched the UK's 'ONLY' WPOZ Campaign and Front Page News followed so many times and Heathrow were listening. It made me realise (if I could) then I had to try to help the entire community. - And if you vote for me that is what I intend to do.

"Local politics are (hugely Important) but they're about voting for people you think can help better our community. Not to benefit Councillors who think they have a right to be there!" - Jim McIlroy.

PEOPLE ASK, WHY VOTE?

1.

VOTING IN YOUR LOCAL ELECTION IS IMPORTANT

Although people feel let down by Westminster politics. This is Local Politics and it affects our daily lives in the communities we live and work in. Who you vote in is very important, as these people 'can and should' be able to make real changes in our communities.
*So local politics RESULTS are Hugely Important!

2.

ACTIVE COUNCILLORS

Getting the 'right people voted in' who can make the Council listen, act and deliver better services. People who are known as strong negotiators by the airport, who will hold Heathrow to account is CRITICAL for the future of our communities.

3.

GETTING RESULTS

I'm already doing this as an active campaigner and delivering great results in the community as a volunteer. I'm already doing much more as a volunteer than any of our existing Councillors. - I know how to campaign and get things done. As an elected Councillor I'd have even more leverage to help make changes in the community!

GET INVOLVED

If you'd like to help in any way, or are you involved campaigns for our communities that we can work together on? – Could you help as a volunteer, or do you have any other skills? – If so, let me know as every bit of help, no matter how small is valued!

MY ELECTION PROMISE:

While we can't change things at WESTMINSTER and people are fed up with National Politics "WE CAN" change things LOCALLY with the right people working for us. I promise to do everything I can to help bring real change to Stanwell Moor and Stanwell. - If I am elected!

I'M NOT A POLITICIAN!

I don't know all the political rules and I don't have all the answers. I'm just a local man who knows how to get things done and I'm already doing more than existing councillors. - If elected as Councillor for a Ward that I know and care about. - I could do so much more. 

WE CAN MAKE CHANGES!

Unlike NATIONAL POLITICS: If you VOTE for hard working "Local Champions" who are already making Councils do things "THEY CAN" make REAL CHANGE. - I've done it as a volunteer in STANWELL MOOR for the last 2-YEARS. - So I'd like try to do the same for STANWELL!

IF I'M ELECTED:

I will continue to work with Spelthorne Borough Council. I'll continue to engage local businesses and lobby Heathrow Airport to create new jobs, new facilities, better services and deliver real change. - For the people of Stanwell and Stanwell Moor.

MY BELIEF IS

VOTERS IN STANWELL NORTH DECIDED

While most people believe, myself included that we are being let down by national politicians they understood that if we want change in our communities we need local champions who are known to be working hard for the area who are proven and are already delivering. They understood that I am NOT a politician but I've already delivered more than any existing Councillor in this ward. Councillors who say a lot but deliver nothing substantial who I believe have been letting down residents for years and I want to change that.

I voted to exit the European Union whether or not we had a deal. There was no mention of a deal when the question was asked. It can be argued that entire debate has been hijacked by big business with a vested interest in staying in and by the Irish backstop. To the extent where we've lost the main argument for the majority of Great Britain. For politicians to suggest the British electorate did not understand a 'simple question' is as shameful, as it is insulting. To suggest there should be another referendum when the referendum has been held and the British people have spoken would be a nail in the coffin for the home of democracy. I would gladly leave the european club under World Trade Organisation WTO rules. - My opinion is that as the World's 5th biggest economy, we should have had more forceful negotiators.

We are the 5th largest economy in the world

Trade with the EU matters a lot, but slightly less than it used to

About 44% of UK exports in goods and services went to other countries in the EU in 2017 - £274 billion out of £616 billion total exports. That share has generally been declining, since exports to other countries have increased at a faster rate.

If you look at the Top 20 world economies from within Europe only Germany pips us in the rankings and I believe that won't last long when we come out. Only France, Italy, Spain and the Netherlands figure in this list. You have to look to the Top 40 to find that only 7 of the other 22 countries in the European Union appear.

Poland, Sweden, Belgium, Austria, Norway, Ireland at No 32 and Denmark at No 38 figure in the Top 40 and their collective GDP equates to 3,453,016 so even these do not come close to the United Kingdom.

All of these Countries economies will suffer when we leave.
So it begs the question - Who needs who more?

The UK's negotiating power

“All of these countries have a vested interest [in negotiating with us]... Poland wants to sell machinery to us. The Italians want to sell fashion goods to us. The Germans, cars and engineering goods. The Spaniards and French want to sell food and drink to us. And they all have surpluses in our direction. So they want to sell to us more than we want to sell to them.”—David Davis MP

While, it’s difficult to get a single answer for the size of the UK’s exports and imports to and from the rest of the EU it is my understanding. Using UK data of goods and services to other EU countries were worth £230 billion in 2014, about 13% of the value of the British economy.

Newer figures are now available, showing it’s down to 12% for 2015. It’s stayed at around 13-15% over the past decade.

In 2014 exports from the rest of the EU to the UK were worth between £290 and £360 billion, depending on whether you use EU data or UK data. That’s about 3 to 4% of the size of the remaining EU’s economy.

As explored above, our trade with other EU countries can vary significantly.

EU in world economy

“The EU right now, for example, is one of the worst performing economic areas in the world, it’s basically a sinking ship economically.”—Steve Hilton

This claim really depends on what you mean by an ‘economic area’, and what you measure, but Mr Hilton has a point.

FullFact.org looked at IMF data for economic growth over the past five years, measured in gross domestic product (GDP) and broken down into regional country groups. It shows that the EU, and the eurozone within it, grew more slowly than other regions.

In most cases it was starting from a better position, as a rich area, but it also grew more slowly than what the IMF considers 'advanced economies' generally.

My thanks to FullFact.org as the primary source for these facts.

A WORLD TO TRADE IN AGAIN!

While Europe is our nearest trading partner the mathematics are that it is 27 countries in its entirety. There are another 168 trading countries and their market shares are rising. It is no longer the Common Market that we bought into but is an undemocratic union with a democratic deficit, fronted by unelected bureaucrats with delusions of becoming being a superstate that is forcing pointless diktats on the people of Europe.

In my opinion, while the European bloc is important, its market share is diminishing. Therefore it is not as important as it once was, and we not thrown away all of our ace cards we could have been in a much better place than we see ourselves today.

"While some figures can be argued and not all can be correct. There is NO QUESTION that Great Britain has an opportunity like never before to trade with Europe and every other emerging or advanced economies to become an even larger player on the World stage. - If only we have the belief in ourselves. It's in our own hands" - JIM MCILROY
