Press release for today
Geoffrey Woollard, the independent candidate for South East Cambridgeshire, blew in on Stetchworth on Monday for a canvassing visit.
His message to Stetchworth electors was and is, "If you, like me, are fed up with all of the major political parties and, like me, can't see much difference between them and their policies on, say, the economy and the dreadfully wasteful adventure in Afghanistan, there is surely a lot to be said for a truly independent candidate who will listen, take advice, think things through for himself and make up his own mind on the issues that affect us all, and then act and vote accordingly. That is what I stand for and I hope you agree."
Geoffrey is seen in the attached picture chatting with a very young grandmother in Strollers Way, Stetchworth. The picture was taken by her son, who lives in Burwell and who, in turn, has a school-age son.

Geoffrey has been actively canvassing for several weeks and has already been to Linton, Ely, Waterbeach, Kirtling & Upend, Milton, Balsham, West Wratting, Weston Colville, West Wickham, Willingham, Haddenham, Newmarket (the South East Cambridgeshire parts thereof), Hildersham, Horseheath, Isleham, Horningsea, Bartlow, Shudy Camps, Castle Camps, Impington, Stretham, Over, Teversham, Fen Ditton, Witchford, Reach, and, on Monday, Stetchworth.
Geoffrey knows that there is widespread disillusionment with and distrust of all party politicians and believes that the forthcoming General Election is 'wide open,' both nationally and locally. He says, "We need to restore trust in Parliament. We have had enough of our politicians just turning up at Westminster and toeing the party line. The party line is too often a dead end track to nowhere."
