Social entrepreneur and former MYP (Member of Youth Parliament) for Sleaford & North Hykeham, Joseph Hayat, has vowed to take on MP Stephen Phillips in the 2015 General Election.
As MYP Hayat averted rises in youth public transport costs across the county, fought for the protection of young people from sex crimes and championed a national employment campaign praised by Prime Minister David Cameron.
Now he has set his sights on beating Tory MP Phillips at the next election.
“I have watched with great interest, as Mr. Phillips has ‘hopped’ around Parliament these last four years -voting in support of rises in tuition fees, greater privatization of our health care system – this list goes on," said Mr. Hayat.
“My promise is simple, to do what I say and say what I mean, to stand up for the hard working people of Sleaford and North Hykeham honestly and openly once again."
