Important questions for Natalie Elphicke.
As Labour’s Parliamentary Candidate for Dover and Deal, it is my duty to hold the current MP to account.
After a series of tweets from Natalie Elphicke today, I have some important questions that need to be answered:
Ms Elphicke claims that it “takes far too long for infrastructure to be decided and delivered” adding that we need to build what is needed in Dover for the Port. I am intrigued to know which infrastructure projects and funding she has applied for and that is taking so long?
I hope this is not another attempt to use smoke, mirrors and misleading statements to hide incompetence. The people of Dover and Deal are not stupid, they deserve to be treated with honesty and respect.
I would also like to know what Ms Elphicke did to ensure there was resilience at the Port to deal with additional checks post Brexit. Was she aware that new checkpoints were dismissed by the Government? What did she do to counter this short sighted, poor decision?
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.
