Alex Payton is in his early forties and works as a barrister. He has lived in Thatcham (where he was mayor) and Newbury for over thirty years, and is the most local choice amongst the major parties.

North West Hampshire has an opportunity for a new start after years of being politically taken for granted. The Lib Dems are the challenger to the Conservatives, second in both councillor numbers and votes at the last general elections.

At a national level, the Liberal Democrats want to protect the NHS, balance the books, raise the income tax threshold to £12,500 and introduce a legal right for those on zero-hours contracts to request a fixed contract.

In any coalition, the Lib Dems would give a heart to any Conservative government. And a head to any Labour one.

But this election is not just about national politics. Your MP's key role is to represent and support the people of [Andover / Tadley / Overton] and North West Hampshire. Alex has a record of acting and achieving for his community, from successfully fighting to retain local post offices, to ensuring the local NHS provides for palliative care.

Unlike the Conservative candidate Alex does not have company directorships taking up his time. Alex, if elected, will be a full-time MP living in the constituency. He would put North West Hampshire first. The Conservative by contrast has explicitly refused, at all of the hustings around the district so far, to give up any of his company directorships even if he were elected.

Alex will be a local MP for local people, improving your facilities, and ensuring you have an effective local voice in parliament.

Please vote for the Liberal Democrats on 7th May, for your local council and for your MP.
