What you need to know about Mike:


Mike is the Chairman of UKIP Stretford & Urmston.  Mike, along with his wife Val, is a Christian, and  both enjoy supporting Stockport County. They have two grown up sons with families of their own. Mike Is a keen runner and has completed several marathons, finishing the London Marathon on 24/04/2016 in 3:11:57 for which the whole branch is really proud of him.


Mike is heavily critical of the political football between the Trafford Conservatives and Labour parties.  Mike would like to see local councillors put Trafford residents first and not pay ‘lip service’ to party politics. He is disappointed that the Conservative council continue to hit the most vulnerable in our community with their cuts year on year and also fail the people of Trafford inappropriate planning approvals which add to the pollution and congestion in our borough.


Flixton is an area that needs investment and needs a Councillor who will fight for the people of the ward.  Mike has the fight in him.  16.5% of the ward voted UKIP in 2014 and Mike is hoping that even greater numbers will be looking for a refreshing alternative in 2016. UKIP is the only party fighting to be released from the EU.  We will send between £8 billion and £12 billion a year (see page 140 here) between now and 2020.
