Press Release – Dover Labour elects Mike Tapp

Labour choose former soldier as candidate for Dover and Deal.

Dover and Deal Labour Party has selected a new candidate to stand for Parliament at the next election.
Mike Tapp served with the British Army on three operational tours including Afghanistan. He was later an officer at the National Crime Agency – where he worked to put human traffickers in prison – and then at the Ministry of Defence in a Counter Terrorist role.
“The way P&O workers have been treated is unacceptable. I will not stand by like the current MP and Conservative Government have. Turning up for photo opportunities whilst failing to vote in legislation to protect workers sums up what the Conservatives in Dover and Deal stand for.”
Mike added: Between now and the General Election, I will work hard for all the people of Dover and Deal. I will be a bold voice for the area and stand up for local residents.
“Whether its fighting bus service cuts, standing up for workers, protecting the NHS or looking into how we reduce violent crime – I will be there!”

Mike Tapp is the PPC for Dover and Deal.
He served in the Army where he deployed on 3 operational tours, and at the National Crime Agency and the Ministry of Defence working against human trafficking and in a counter terrorist role.
