This General Election is the most important for a generation. In these changing times, Labour can win South Norfolk with the help of all forward-looking people. In 2017, the constituency saw a huge swing to Labour and we became the main challenger party by a large margin. In 2019, we need to finish the job and create real change.
Our Candidate / Beth Jones
Beth is a qualified NHS mental health nurse who works at different locations around South Norfolk.
In 2016 she was elected to Norwich City Council and represents University ward.
“I am incredibly proud to have been selected as Labour’s parliamentary candidate for South Norfolk. I grew up in a rural constituency of villages, market towns and farms, not unlike South Norfolk. I moved to Norfolk at the age of 18 and never considered leaving. Norfolk became my true home.
“Over the last 18 years I have worked in different health and social care jobs, from support worker in a homeless drop-in centre to a care assistant in DIss. I was fortunate enough to receive some amazing NHS care and as I result decided to train as a nurse. Since qualifying as a mental health nurse two years ago, I have worked in acute care, more recently providing crisis mental health care in South Norfolk.
“In 2016, I was elected as a local councillor and have a particular interest, along with the NHS, in improving standards of private rented housing, as this has such an enormous impact on health and wellbeing.
“Being the best nurse I can be is no long enough. I cannot stand by as the Tories privatise so much of our NHS, with promised funding just a political illusion. So I am standing as Labour’s candidate for South Norfolk on Thursday 12th December.”
I pledge to /
- Fight for our NHS and better social care – for a modern, well resourced NHS, with high quality care that is not for profit and investment in social care.
- Protect community policing – to reverse the cuts to our neighbourhood policing, decimated by Tories.
- An economy that works for all – to create secure employment, tackle corporate tax avoidance, with no tax increases for 95% of us.
- Brexit – a binding public vote on a new deal within six months, with Remain on the ballot.
- Real action on climate change – a Green New Deal with zero carbon energy systems by the 2030’s and new homes zero carbon by 2022.
