The Britain I used to know has broken – broken in many sectors by both Conservatives and Labour parties.

Current politics by Conservatives, Labour, LibDem are not fit for the people and the country. They have run out of ideas, lack the determination to get the UK back on track and work for the working class people. 

The immense challenges are ahead and except Reform UK, no other party has any Common Sense solutions to “Make London and UK Great Again”!

I want to reshape and reform London, and get it back on track. 

Being a working class person and working on various community issues for many years, I understand general people and their issues, challenges. I will ensure residents’ voices are being heard at London City Hall.

I am standing as a Barnet and Camden London Assembly Constituency candidate with Reform UK on behalf of the residents because like many of you I am frustrated, worried, tremendously concern about the current situations in Barnet and Camden as:

  • ULEZ introduction is hitting many of you,
  • crimes are in high rates,
  • residents safety is at critical conditions,
  • anti-social behaviors are in rocket-high,
  • small businesses are suffering,
  • people are struggling with GP and hospital appointments,
  • green spaces in Barnet and Camden are vanishing month by month,
  • parents are not getting proper support and education for their children,
  • roads are dirty, full of potholes,
  • and many other local issues

My main pledges are to
