*All aboard the Young Fabians Campaign Train!*
On 7 March we will be heading to Sheffield Hallam to help PPC Oliver Coppard beat DPM Nick Clegg MP.
We will be joined by Tom Watson MP.
Candidate: Oliver Coppard’s story in his own words:
“I want to be the MP for Sheffield Hallam because this is my home and my community. I’m angry and frustrated by Nick Clegg and the way he’s betrayed our trust, let down our city and undermined people’s good faith in the capacity of politics to make their lives better. With your support we can show Nick Clegg that we will not forget his broken promises."
"As your MP, my priorities will be clear:
Fight for Sheffield in Parliament so that we get a fairer share of public sector funding and more control over decisions that effect the future of our city.
Work to build a society that benefits the many and not the few, protecting the most vulnerable members of our community and addressing the cost of living crisis that is causing hardship for so may people in our community.
Support efficient and effective public services and the people who work in them.
Champion more private sector investment in Sheffield, promoting our first class universities and world leading industries, from advanced manufacturing to green technologies.
Be transparent and accountable at all times, and behave in a way that restores your faith in politics and the political system.”
Constituency: Sheffield Hallam is DPM Nick Clegg’s constituency. In Lord Ashcroft’s works: “In Sheffield Hallam, I found Nick Clegg ahead by just three points (and only on the second question where voters were reminded to think of their own constituency – on the standard voting intention question Labour were ahead). I would be amazed if the Lib Dem leader ended up losing his seat, but remember he won 53% of the vote in Hallam at the height of Cleggmania.”
