UKIP candidate John Ison's Election QuestionnaireChris Willmott 06 May 2010
Name – John Ison
Age - 41
Occupation – Managing Director own business
I believe I should be the next MP because - (150 words maximum please) -
Our country deserves better. Our children need investment in their education. Our pensioners who are the backbone of our great country deserve a better standard of living and higher pensions. Our workers need more in their pay packet and should not be taxed and taxed and taxed. Our health care needs the financial input that some bankers take for granted as a bonus. Our businesses need tax breaks to allow them to grow and recruit more staff. We need a voice in Parliament and that voice should be mine.
The best thing about the constituency is? The people who live and work in Solihull.
The worst thing about the constituency is? Allowing big corporate supermarkets to undermine local trade.
The treasury has given you £1 million to spend on a specific project in the constituency. How would you spend it?
There are 17 volunteer charities in Solihull. I would divide the funding up to enhance their fundraising activities.
Favourite place in the constituency? It has to be teaching children to swim at Tudor Grange Leisure Centre. Swimming is a life skill as well as a sport which could save the child’s life one day but also provides them with a healthier lifestyle.
Where would you choose to spend a night out in the constituency? Seeing a play at the Library Theatre.
My greatest fear is: Heights! Even though I love flying planes get me up a ladder and watch me shake!
My proudest moment was: The birth of my twin boys Zak and Sam
