3 POSITIVE REASONS TO VOTE FOR NICK HILLMAN

  1. Fixing the economy
    Labour are building up huge debts. They expect taxpayers to pick up the bill for their incompetence. This is harmful for our economy. A Conservative Government will sort out the mess.
  2. Raising quality of life
    We will focus on the issues that affect our quality of life. We will increase the NHS budget, crack down on anti-social behaviour and free Cambridge from arbitrary housing targets.
  3. Ensuring world-class education
    Cambridge’s excellent universities, colleges and schools have received a raw deal recently. We will give them greater freedom so they can build on their strengths.

A FAIRER DEAL FOR CAMBRIDGE

Cambridge has had a poor deal in recent years, as the Lib Dems have found it hard to champion our local needs at Westminster. Voting Lib Dem this time could keep Gordon Brown in Number 10, whereas voting Conservative will ensure we have an MP who can put Cambridge at the heart of the next Government.

WORLD-CLASS HIGHER EDUCATION

Cambridge has been hit by Labour’s university policies. Academics rightly demand less government interference. Nick Hillman studied
at Cambridge University and wants our city to go on providing a worldclass education. Conservatives will deliver 10,000 extra student places in 2010/11.

HELPING YOUNG PEOPLE

The number of young people not in education, employment or training has shot up under Labour. Nick Hillman has taught at Hills Road Sixth Form College and he has made better opportunities for young people a key priority. Conservatives are committed to 150,000 more apprenticeships, pre-apprenticeships and college places.

TACKLING ANTI-SOCIAL BEHAVIOUR

Police officers spend more time doing paperwork than on the beat. That helps to explain why crime has risen. We need a new approach. We will introduce elected police chiefs so that the police are accountable to local residents. We will also make sure police officers spend more time on the beat.

DIGNITY FOR OLDER PEOPLE

We are committed to ensuring the NHS gets more funding to reflect our ageing population. We will reintroduce the earnings link for the basic state pension. And we will start a home protection scheme so that people do not have to sell their property to pay for residential care.

PROMOTING A GREENER FUTURE

After the failure of the Copenhagen talks, we need a new focus on climate change and carbon reduction. Conservatives will push Britain towards becoming a low-carbon economy. We will provide big reductions in public sector emissions, more renewable power and a new Green Deal to pay for home insulation.

FAIRNESS FOR FAMILIES

The large gender pay gap is indefensible. We will introduce stronger legislation against this discrimination. We will extend the right to request flexible working to all parents with children under 18. And we will introduce 4,200 new Health Visitors so all families get the help they need.

VOTE NICK HILLMAN FOR THE CHANGE WE NEED
