I am pleased to announce that I am a Parliamentary Candidate for Reform UK Scotland for the Lothian electoral region in the forthcoming Scottish Parliament election, proposed for May 6th 2021.

“Covid-19, the disease caused by Sars-CoV-2 is the most serious health crisis we have faced in our lifetime. Unfortunately our response has been led more by panic than clear-headed science. The analysis driving the imposition of previously unimaginable restrictions has failed to take into account the incredible damage to our society and our children’s futures and there is, sadly, a very real possibility that the measures taken have been ineffective or even made matters worse.

I will be standing on the platform that the UK and Scottish government responses to the coronavirus pandemic have been a failed experiment on the British people and that both governments must do whatever it takes to avoid any future suspension of our fundamental human rights.”

I will publish a series of videos and articles over the coming weeks setting out our case and our strategy for ending this madness.

Each week I will pick a selection of comments to respond to.
