With the Uxbridge & South Ruislip by-election coming up on the 20th July. We bring details of local resident and Pastor Enomfon Ntefon, who is the Christians Peoples Alliance (CPA) candidate for election.
Enomfon Ntefon has lived in Uxbridge for 12 years working as a nurse in the community. She has led a church in the area with her husband Robert for 7 years until recently. She’s headed up an organisation “Mums against youth crime” for 4 years. She’s also been involved in helping people with food provision in the community that need it. She’s developed a close connection with a number of care homes in the area supporting residents. She spent many years as a parent governor of her local school.
Robert and Enomfon have had 5 children between them now ages 20 to 31. They understand all the problems parents face in modern society.
Enomfon has authored 6 books, 3 of which are related to the family, “Winning mums”, “120 Words of Wisdom” and “Answering your Destiny Call as a Mother”. She’s currently running an “Arrows on Point” parent coaching and mentorship programme.
The CPA is focusing on two main areas:
- We want moral education
- We would transform the economy
Enomfen Ntefon said “Moral education is a major concern of mine. Education should be about teaching different moral points of view including those of Christianity and New Age liberalism and those of other religions especially where they are in a majority”
“Many parents have complained, some very vocally, outside schools and reviews have been promised but to date nothing has been done. Sometimes children themselves are protesting about the teaching inside classrooms.”
Leader of the CPA Sid Cordle said the “CPA policy is for a turnover tax to be set at 5% initially which will be a sellers VAT with the same threshold as purchasers VAT, £85,000. We would offset it against corporation tax (tax on profits) so British Companies would pay less. The idea is to get tax off Amazon, Microsoft, Facebook, Starbucks, Shell etc. who send all their profits abroad and so don’t pay corporation tax. We would use the anticipated £40.5bn raised to;
- Get rid of all Commercial rates to help City Centres (£21bn),
- Restore the cuts to benefits to get rid of the 5 week waiting period a key reason why people attend food banks (£12bn),
- Support marriage and the family by giving a £12,000 grant before a first marriage and £6,000 grant before a first child is born if it is within wedlock (£3bn),
- Guarantee everyone who leaves prison a place to live to cut reoffending and guarantee everyone sleeping rough a night shelter and free meal (£4.5bn).”
Sid goes on to say “We would also set up a new Professional Standards Authority directly answerable to ministers and get rid of numerous quangos such as the Teachers Regulatory Authority, Social Work England, Wilton House etc. This will drastically cut red tape. All quangos that remain like the Financial Conduct Authority will also be answerable directly to ministers. This will help stop the civil service undermining ministerial decisions. Before the 2010 election, the Taxpayers Alliance issued a manifesto that highlighted the presence of 1,148 quangos spending £90 billion a year. These are mostly still intact. We estimate we can save £30bn a year immediately we will use on capital spending. (Over 5 years we would have £150bn to spend). We believe a new 6 runway hub airport in the Thames Estuary would do most for the British economy and reduce pollution. Capital spending like this creates wealth which means we can in time eliminate the deficit and reduce debt.
We would reintroduce GP fundholding which operated in the 1990s very successfully to transform the NHS and make it efficient again.
These are radical policies, but we know they work and we know they would transform the economy.”
