Thank you Wokingham

I would like to thank all those who supported me in the election.

I will take up those issues which many of you stressed to me mattered, in the new Parliament.

I promised to work had for policies which advance the country’s prosperity, and to work with the Council on the many local planning, environmental and transport issues which affect our daily lives in  the area.

I also wish to reassure those Remain voters who voted for parties offering a second referendum that I have every belief that we can be better off out of the EU. I know many of you are concerned that the UK will lose income and wealth from our exit. I  am setting out policies that promote greater growth as we leave, in part by using freedoms we gain and in part by changing the economic policy successive governments have been following whilst in.

I will of course wish to represent you all to the best of my ability. Where you have legitimate worries about policy direction and government management I will seek to find ways to make things better.

    Congratulations John!

    Not only did you win, you beat one irksome former Tory MP candidate who should never have been in the Conservative party in the first place.

    Happily, that was repeated elsewhere. On one blog, I said Boris’ victory is like bursting a septic spot in order to rid ourselves of all the foul puss.

    How good it now is to breathe clean air again and have a parliament that intents to carry out the will of the people.

    Well done Sir John, you have a great deal to give, perhaps you will be able to get The Boris W A deal, , ,
    Turned into get out right now, the EU needs us even more now, they can not dictate to us any more.

    Boris has a good lead over anyone else, no opposition to speak of.

    It might be nice if Nigel Farage could be asked to help with the negotiations ?

    It must be remembered That without his 25 years hard work, we would not be just where we are today, he has worked so hard, he does deserve a pat on the back , a thank you ?

    The very best to one and all for Christmas and the bright future for Great Britain, well done all

    Congratulationonducted by Sir John, a great result, just a shame that the whole election was conducted by opposing parties on a personal attack basis, rather than the local issues. At least the part time opponent failed even after having people “tactically voting” for he Lab Dims.
    It would have been an even bigger margin if The Brexit Party had stood down completely as all they achieved was to enable a number of marginal Labour MPs to remain in place.

    Now we need to get on with what should have been happening under the May debacle.
    Good Luck.
