Hamish Haddow is the Reform UK Prospective Parliamentary Candidate for Chipping Barnet. We spoke with Hamish about his decision to stand.
Can you briefly introduce yourself to our readers?
I am Hamish Haddow, Reform Party Spokesman for the Chipping Barnet Constituency. Having been brought up in Kent, I have also had the privilege in living in both South Africa & Zimbabwe. After doing a Business Degree, I have been in IT Management for thirty years with industry qualifications. I live in Hertfordshire, near to Chipping Barnet, with my wife. I have three children. I am very active in the local community and a member of the local Rugby club, PCC, and other charity work.
My personal vision is, when I leave this mortal coil, to have left this country in a better state than when my grandparents left it.
What made you decide to stand for Reform UK?
My father was a Conservative Councillor for Holborn and my family have always supported the Tories, as I have done in the past. However, I feel betrayed. They do not represent my Patriotic and Conservative values anymore, having made our Great Britain worse than when they got into power, 13 years ago. Migration is out of control, RNLI working as a taxi service for illegal immigrants. Reckless spending and not on the British residents. Retired Servicemen sleeping on the streets, whilst illegal asylum seekers are placed in 4-star hotels. British History is still not being taught in schools, but rather LGBT rhetoric and other nonsense. My father is turning in his grave.
You’re the Spokesman for Chipping Barnet what’s made you decide to represent this area?
I used to work for the Barnet Council and know Barnet very well, living close by. My grandparents used to live in Barnet, before moving to Kent. I love the high street and iconic St John’s and Hadley common with St Mary’s. People have a lot to be proud of.
What do you see as the big concerns for the constituency and what issues do you hope to champion?
Barnet has the worse potholes on record in the country. The Mayors thieving fingers are taking out of the pockets of every Londoner, most especially now with ULEZ. Working for the council I saw the waste that councils spend money on and whilst Barnet is not as bad as others, there is no accountability when they ask for a bail out. Antisemitism is out of control in London and this needs to end. Enough is Enough of woke police and teachers. Enough is Enough of migration destroying our beautiful country and taking away housing and opportunities from Londoners.
For those eager to help, how can they get involved in the campaign?
We are slowly building up a fantastic team of Volunteers in Chipping Barnet and we need more help to get out there and speak to all our residents. Anyone interested in getting involved can contact me on [email protected].
