I’m Patrick Hurley and I’m asking you to support me to be the MP for Southport and the Northern Parishes. For many years I’ve been heavily involved in the social enterprise and charity sectors across the country. I’ve been a Local Authority councillor in the north west, championing and being active within the communities I’ve represented. 

Growing up in Prescot and St Helens in the 1980s, I saw first-hand the impact the Conservative government had on my generation. Millions unemployed, multiple recessions, hospitals and schools underfunded. In my own family, too, the impact was profound. The education and employment opportunities that others had access to were withheld because of where we lived and the income of our parents.

It was only once Labour formed a government in the 1990s that families like mine started to be provided with a platform on which we could stand. I’ve seen the power that Labour governments can wield, and the improvements they can make to people’s lives. And I’ve seen how the Conservatives routinely stand in our way.

We hear there’s a “cost-of-living crisis”, but for our most vulnerable people, there’s been a cost-of-living crisis for over a decade. Families are starving, nurses are using foodbanks, and parents are choosing between heating and eating. Our nation’s safety net is no longer catching the people it should. It’s time for real, tangible, radical change.

If you vote for me to be your MP, I’ll work tirelessly to help our community. I’ll work not just in Parliament, but also in the constituency, to bring the most effective innovations from across the country to our town and villages. I’ll bang the drum loudly for much-needed transport links, the necessary investment in our economic offer, and the skills training we need to ensure that the next generation stays local and contributes to the town’s future.
