I'm backing Theresa Villiers for Barnet!

"As a teacher, I fully endorse Theresa Villiers as an advocate for education. Her commitments and achievements to date speak for themselves here. She is committed to investing in our schools and I have been proud to campaign with her on the Chipping Barnet doorsteps since this election campaign started. Jeremy Corbyn would be a disaster for our education system. His crusade against independent and grammar schools would place unprecedented pressure on all our schools, stretching resources to their limit whilst punishing hard working families with crippling taxes. A vote for Theresa and the Conservatives will stop the Labour Party from wrecking our local community, allowing her to serve our constituency and continue the outstanding work she has done for the past fifteen years. Harvey Ross, Teacher and Chipping Barnet resident

“Theresa has been a fantastic MP for the people of Chipping Barnet. As a local resident herself, she is completely community minded, has always been a brilliant advocate for local residents and is always willing to lend a hand. Theresa is standing with local residents against the Mayor of London’s plans to build tower blocks over the car park at High Barnet station. I would encourage people vote for her so that we continue to have a strong voice to represent us in Parliament.” Gail Laser, local entrepreneur and High Barnet resident

“Living in Barnet for over 20 years, medical services have improved dramatically. Theresa has played a huge role in this and we are lucky to have her on our side.” Dr Baboo Kabra, Whetstone resident

“Theresa is a principled politician who has been consistent in her views on Brexit matters and other major issues of national importance. That is why I have a high regard for her. She puts the interests of the country first. I have been living in Barnet for the past 20 years and have been impressed by the manner in which she has represented the interests of the people. She has been a superb MP serving the people of Chipping Barnet. I wish her every success”. Dr. S.P. Subedi, Underhill resident

“My husband and I have known Theresa since 2008. She was willing to listen to the problems of the Tamil Community and once she had fully understood our plight, she did everything in her power to support us. She has visited the UN with the team from the British Tamils Forum, to help them highlight the human rights issues that the Tamils have back in Sri Lanka. Theresa attends many Tamil Community events to show us her support. Theresa is now, known well amongst the community as a champion of the Tamil people. Theresa is an honest, sincere and hardworking MP. What impresses me most, about Theresa, is that, she has time for her constituents and is very approachable, making everyone feel comfortable, so that they are able to talk to her about any issue.  We wish her the very best.” Thaksha Ravikulan, East Barnet resident

“My name is Adele Winston, I live in Barnet and I have been a life long member of the Labour party and I am now supporting Theresa Villiers and the Conservatives because of the very real threat perceived by my community, the Jewish community from Jeremy Corbyn and the disgraceful way he has refused point blank to tackle the threat of anti-Semitism in the Labour party. Theresa has always been very supportive of our community, can be trusted to continue to do that and on December 12th I’m voting for Theresa and the Conservatives.” Adele Winston, Barnet resident and former member of the Labour party

“I’m supporting Theresa Villiers for many reasons but one of them is that she stands with the residents of High Barnet against the Mayor of London’s unfeasible development of High Barnet Station car park.” Gaynor Bond, founder of ‘Hands of High Barnet’

I’m urging you to re-elect Theresa Villiers as Member of Parliament for Chipping Barnet on the 12th of December. Theresa knows this constituency inside out, she understands the needs of its communities. I know that Theresa has a fantastic local plan for Barnet she wants, more funding for our hospitals, more nurses, more funding for schools, business rates cute to help our local high streets, campaigning against overdevelopment at High Barnet underground station. Theresa and the Conservatives are absolutely the right people to represent this seat. Theresa has stood up for communities right across this seat, for the Jewish community, the Tamil community, the Cypriot community and for many many more. And for me I know that the Conservatives will allow hard working people across the country to pay less tax and keep more of what they earn. Daniel Cohen, Hadley resident

“As a member of British Hindu and Indian community in North London, we will be voting to return a strong Conservative government. Theresa Villiers, has championed and supported causes of the British Hindus and British Indian community locally and nationally and has spoken in Parliament on issues of concern to us. Theresa has endorsed the importance of strong ties of friendship, trade, and culture between India and the UK. I know that Theresa worked tirelessly to protect fields at Whalebones and to oppose Labour plans to build high rise blocks in High Barnet and Cockfosters. She plans to secure sufficient police recruitment in Barnet to keep Barnet safe, NHS services will be expanded and GP appointment times will be readily available.

Theresa has a strong sense of responsibility who does not leave a job unfinished. She is honest, listens carefully to you and is always determined to find solutions to the problems. Barnet is the main borough in the whole of the UK where the Anglo-Iranian community reside. Theresa is fully aware about the concerns of the various Barnet communities and her constituents. She has raised the cause of human rights in Iran in every opportunity from highlighting it in the parliament to speaking at the various settings. We have no doubt that Theresa Villiers will continue to represent Barnet constituents in the next parliament!” Members of the Iranian community in Chipping Barnet
