Brexit Party Candidate for Torfaen Cllr David Gwyn Thomas

Cllr David Gwyn Thomas

Cllr David Gwyn Thomas

“I’m David Thomas, a lifelong Torfaen resident and businessman. 28,781 of us here in Torfaen voted to leave the EU in 2016 and have been frustrated watching from the sidelines as our politicians do their best to make sure Torfaens voice is ignored. I know I can be the voice that respects and upholds democracy in Torfaen.

We have stagnated under an ungrateful Labour Party for over 101 years. The areas that were deprived in my youth are still deprived. The education system is failing our children, GP’s are difficult to access, council tax rises annually while services decline, the list goes on.

I want to be your MP because I believe that I can help address these issues and restore Torfaens voice in Westminster. I’m offering Torfaen policies for Torfaen residents, real and meaningful actions that will benefit you and your family.

I’m the only candidate that can beat Labour,a vote for the conservatives here in Torfaen is a wasted vote. Vote conservatives keep Labour. Vote Brexit party get real change. So please make sure your vote counts. Vote for change, vote for Torfaen, vote for David Thomas vote for The Brexit party.

Torfaen is a 60.78% Leave area and is very winnable.

In the last parliamentary election the winner was Labour Hold (26.6% majority) MP Turnout 62.1% (Total electorate: 61839)
