Do they Represent You?

Banffshire and Buchan Coast does not currently do well out of its elected parliamentary representatives . Whether one-trick Brexiteers or one-track Nationalists, these are, first and foremost, loyal footsoldiers of a Leadership whose concern is elsewhere, whether in the heartlands of England or Scotland's central belt.

This coastline, Banffshire and Buchan - its industries, culture and history, is of little interest to either Leader - Tory or Nationalist - unless he or she is trying to score points off the other.

This constituency will be the scene of a dogfight in 2021. Conservatives need to look as if they actually care about the Union, and The Nationalists want a nice tidy clean sweep, to drive towards an Independence Referendum - regardless of the pressing needs of business, education, health and social care as we try to recover from the trauma of COVID.

Banffshire and Buchan Voters deserve a credible, capable local candidate who cares about serving our place and its people, rather than simply using them to pursue their ideological obsessions.

We have to put recovery first
