“We need political parties who actively campaign to improve public services for young and old,” said Scotton-Peters. “Everyone should be able to contribute to the lifeblood of our county. I’m a regular user of public transport and the NHS - so I know how this government’s austerity policy is failing us. Housing, leisure and employment opportunities are dwindling in Shropshire, along with Social Care for older citizens, in a county that’s aging 4 times as fast as the UK’s already aging population. Labour will continue to campaign for our services, as needed.”

Standing for election, Scotton-Peters emphasised the importance of inclusive and tolerant politics. The Labour Party has grown in Shropshire in the last 18 months, with 5 branches. Scotton-Peters, a student with particular interest in medicine, is also Chair of Bridgnorth Labour Branch. His wing-woman is one of the oldest Labour Members in Shropshire. Joy Nisbet joined Labour in 1945 and has twice stood for Parliament. She is the new Secretary of Ludlow Labour. Anyone can join the Labour Party from 14 years upwards and there is a growing number of younger Members in Ludlow.

Our MP voted to conceal The government’s documents underpinning their appalling treatment of our ‘Windrush’ citizens and their deliberate ‘hostile environment’ policy that has caused some much worry and pain, and for example, has refused a doctor working in Shropshire the right to stay and work in the UK. Not only is this immoral, heartless and cruel - if is making things worse in our already crisis ridden NHS. He most certainly does not speak for me. In fact I am so ashamed that he, and Theresa May who is up to her neck in this, projects our country in the way to the rest of the world. Please email Philip Dune to philip.dunne.mp@parliament.uk and ask him why he has supported this cover up and tell him what you think in your own words.
