Disappointed but determined

Commenting on the Government’s announcement on Heathrow Airport’s third runway, Leader of Hounslow Conservatives Councillor Peter Thompson said:

Comment from Cllr Peter Thompson on Boundary Review

“We have to have regular boundary reviews for a simple geographical reason: Voters move and populations change. Without them MPs would end up representing constituencies based on data that is over 20 years old.  Ruth and Rupa may cry foul, but this is not gerrymandering.

Conservatives “up the pressure” to back Gatwick

Following a letter signed by eleven London Councils last week, urging new Prime Minister Theresa May to back Gatwick expansion, the leader of Hounslow Conservatives Councillor Peter Thompson and his Deputy have also added to calls to expand Gatwick.

He said,

Congratulations to our new Leader - Theresa May

“I congratulate Theresa May MP on becoming Prime Minister today.  She will provide us with the strong leadership we need to negotiate the best deal for Britain as we leave the European Union and to make Britain a country that works not for a privileged few, but for every single one of us.”

Statement from Hounslow Conservatives!

"It has been a long and, at times, difficult campaign and Hounslow was divided pretty much 50/50 on whether to remain or leave the EU. It's important now that the country comes together and looks to its future.  I am sorry that David Cameron decided to step down as Prime Minister and Leader of the Conservative Party though I fully understand his reasons for doing so.  He has served my Party and the country with great distinction and dedication as Party Leader for over 10 years, and as Prime Minister for six years.  Today is the start of a long process and we need politicians from all sides to work together to deliver security, opportunity and a brighter future."
