General Election 2017 Donald Fraser
Why should you vote for me? This is your question I answer here. So thanks for visiting my site and here is a 2 part answer:
1) I can win if the 49%, who voted LEAVE in Harrogate district, are willing in the defence of Brexit to vote for me. I am your cross-party candidate, an independent, who offers the only conscionable choice to those favouring LEAVE or those who subsequently (after the EU Referendum) are good enough to defend the 52%. Our true patriots must be everyone who, having voted REMAIN on June 23rd, now “stands fast” with “the people” to defend an historic, democratic vote they did not plump for. Britain salutes you! You are our best.
“I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it”
That is often cited to describe the principle of freedom of speech. The defence of Brexit, the principle of the 52%, is the principal reason I put it to the vote. I previously promoted Liberal Leave.
2) If I win my manifesto will be governed by some of my own ideas, which I share with you to consider carefully on this website, but most importantly I will make my representations to Westminster very much more accessible to cross-party influences. My environmental action in the 1990s, the Tory family into which I was born and my more recent left leaning search for a leadership role brings me to where I am today. I do not offer you a full manifesto because:
“Plans fail for lack of counsel, but with many advisers they succeed” Proverbs 15:22
Your independent candidate for 2017
I hope by coming here, after carefully considering my ideas, you leave with the belief that voting for me will reform the political landscape of Harrogate & Knaresborough.
