A lot of people ask me what I stand for. Before the 2015 election, I set out my top six priorities for a better Britain, based on the personal convictions that brought me into politics:
I want lower taxes and less red tape, so Britain creates jobs and prosperity in a competitive world.
I want to smash monopolies, so small businesses can compete and customers have greater choice.
I want more free speech and less political correctness for a healthier democracy.
I want terrorists and criminals under surveillance, not all law-abiding citizens. We need to strike the right balance between the requirements of security and personal privacy.
I want more ladders of opportunity, so youngsters from any background can be successful.
I want to strengthen your democratic voice – including through an EU referendum, the equalisation of constituency boundaries, greater localism, and bridging the democratic deficit between Scotland and the rest of the UK.
