Name: John Bews
Candidate for: Henley
Party: British National Party
Recently retired, John Bews, 65, worked in the transport industry as a lorry driver and haulage company owner, spending much of his time driving across Europe.
He has been married for 42 years, has two daughters and is now a grandfather.
He said: “The biggest issue in Henley is the lack of affordable housing for young indigenous people and probably the elderly as well.
“All the other parties seem to want to do is the politically correct thing to engorge us further into the bowels of the EU and import as many immigrants as they can to exacerbate the situation.
“Affordable and social housing, care for the elderly, education, health care and local government services all need to be urgently addressed.
“We are the only party to recognise this should be paid for not by over-taxed citizens, but by savings that can be made by ousting this Government, whose irresponsible mis-management, extravagance and corruption have reduced this country to the sorry state we are in. This election is the one chance the people have to send a message that enough is enough. If elected, my life will be transparent and 10 per cent of my salary will go to needy causes within our constituency.”
