Centre in London

“I envisage that I will work with Centre’s other regional chairs, to mainly discuss the positive and negative effects of devolution, and to explore if more power needs to be given to local authorities”.

James Taylor

Have you ever heard of the phrase ‘everything in moderation’?. Centre’s centrist approach to governance is something which appeals to me personally, politically and is economically competent. Centre offers rational and liberal-minded policies on how to transform the United Kingdom into a nation with equal and fair opportunities for all. One of the main themes of Centre’s policies is to simplify our relationship with society, should it be through tax codes, housing or education.

I have joined Centre as a regional Chair for Greater London, with the aim of proposing policies which address issues specific to the area. My area of interest is local government, as this level of government is what impacts a person’s everyday life, whether it be waste collections, business rates or even education. Furthermore, members of local government are those who live or work in the same area, so they are in the best position to understand local causes and issues unique to that area. From my position in Centre, I will be able to suggest, influence and hopefully affect policy decisions which reflect my centrist values. I hope to work with the Mayor of London, the GLA and London based MPs and Councillors.

I envisage that I will work with Centre’s other regional chairs, to mainly discuss the positive and negative effects of devolution, and to explore if more power needs to be given to local authorities. By working together, we can hold local authorities to account and ensure they are working in the interest of the public and not self interest.
