Local man Trevor Jones has been announced as the prospective parliamentary candidate for the Brexit Party in Bolton North East.

Trevor was born and educated in Bolton and he still lives there. He is the director and sole owner of Britannia Building Services based in the town.

The former primary school governor is no stranger to politics as he stood as a candidate in the May 2019 local elections for the ward of Tonge with The Haulgh.

“I have been interested in politics since I was a school boy and I firmly believe in Brexit and feel that democracy has been betrayed by our Westminster politicians. The 17.4 million people who voted to leave the EU are being blatantly disregarded,” he said.

“Having run a successful business I now have the time and drive to campaign full out for Brexit. My life and work experience give me a well balanced view of the challenges faced by the electorate.

“I am a plain speaker and I will listen to the electorate’s views. It is time that the voice of the people of Bolton is heard in Parliament. We have a lot of problems in this town which need urgent attention.”

Outside the political arena 56-year-old father-of-one Trevor has travelled extensively through Europe and driven a motorcycle across the USA which took him a mammoth ten months. He has a passion for vintage cars and owns two Austin vans.

His selection was welcomed by Brexit Party North West MEP Henrik Overgaard-Nielsen, who said,”Trevor is an enthusiastic hard working man who has lived his whole life in the town and knows at first hand the problems faced by local people,”



Bolton North East is a 58.11% Leave area and is very winnable.
