APPG5‘Charter for bullied school children’

There are at least 16,000 children between the ages of 11 and 15 missing education in England because they have been severely bullied. They deserve justice. James is pictured with Dr Carrie Herbert MBE, Founder and President of the Red Balloon Learner Centre Group. Already the campaign has drawn widespread praise and was featured on the influential blog page ‘Conservative Home’. A much more detailed article can be found;

Making these changes would go a long way towards helping and supporting the victims of bullying.

A10 Edmonton / Enfield road safety – stop the speed racing and dangerous driving

James has been a staunch road safety advocate for over 20 years. This includes getting action on the speed racing that has taken place on the A10 and car meets.

In Enfield brought forward a debate at Enfield Council (Opposition Priority Business), being interviewed in the media (BBC London News pictured) and launching a number of petitions.

His action with the community has helped secure the Traffic Police ‘Operation Vision Zero’ and roll-out average speed cameras on the A10, but TfL only covered the northern Borough section. James is pressing for all the A10 to be covered as was expected and more action to tackle the illegal car meets.

In addition James has campaigned for school road safety around – both in Waterbeach (pictured above) and Bush Hill Park Ward.

During his time as a Waterbeach Councillor secured a reduced 50mph limit and introduction of traffic lights and street lighting on the Denny End junction.

‘Local Connection’ housing campaign

James campaigns for what is known as ‘local connection housing’. This includes having written about the issue on the ‘Conservative Home’ website and serving on the board of a social housing provider.

Schemes like this mean those on the Council Housing waiting list that have a local connection are pushed to the front of the queue.
