My name is Philip Hawkins. I work for NHS professionals as an Operating Department Practitioner in the post anaesthetic care unit (PACU) at North Devon District Hospital. I Live in North Devon in a three-generation household with my partner my mother-in-law and my teenage son.
I am proud to stand for Barnstaple South as the candidate for the Labour Party.
For too long you have been fed the Lie that only the Conservatives or the Liberal Democrats can win here. Under Conservative and Liberal Democrat Councillors you have seen a wholesale erosion of services. Cuts to Education, cuts to Social Care, cuts to Transport, cuts to Waste Management and cuts across all other services. Since 2010 under the Tories and the Tory enablers the Liberal Democrats you have seen a cut in council spending of 41% in North Devon.
Ten years of unnecessary Tory austerity, followed by the breath-taking ineptitude and cronyism of the Government during the Coronavirus Pandemic may have left you feeling you have nowhere to turn. Isn't it time we demand better for Barnstaple and North Devon?
So, your choice is clear vote for me on the 6th of May and I will fight tooth and nail for you to halt the cuts and improve the services left devastated by the other parties or vote for more of the same, more cuts, more lies, more devastation of services.
