Green Party Candidate for Bicester and Woodstock
IAN MIDDLETON

Real Hope. Real Change.

I’ve lived in what is now the new constituency of Bicester and Woodstock for over 31 years.

 

I moved here in 1993 with my now wife Fiona and set up a small retail business in Oxford which grew into a national chain of stores around the country. I now write about business for various national magazines and provide consultancy and business analysis services.

 

I joined the Green Party in 2012 as I saw it as the only party that was really addressing concerns about things I held dear, such as rural life, the countryside, wildlife, the environment and climate change.

I soon learned that there was even more to the party that I supported such as a belief that local services should be properly financed and that vital national facilities like health, transport, energy and water should be publicly owned.  I also share the Green Party’s commitment to social justice and their aim to ensure that everyone has an affordable place to call home, decent food to eat and clean water. 

 

I’ve campaigned to protect our green spaces against unnecessary development and for better protection for local wildlife. I’ve fought for better flooding protection and more affordable housing and for better walking and cycling facilities. I’ve long been a campaigner for keeping the NHS in public hands and ensuring it’s fully funded and resourced. I know that as GPs and NHS Dental services are now becoming harder to find we need fight even harder to ensure those are maintained.

I was elected to Cherwell District Council in 2019 as the first ever Green councillor on that authority and have since been elected to Oxfordshire County Council representing the Kidlington, Gosford, Yarnton and Begbroke areas on both.  I also sit on three parish councils.

 

I stood for Parliament in the Banbury Constituency in 2015, 2017 and 2019. With the new boundary changes I am honoured to be standing as your Green candidate for my own home constituency in the place that has been my home for nearly half my life. 

 

As someone who has campaigned for and represented the people of Bicester, Kidlington, Woodstock and the surrounding areas for over 8 years, I would welcome the opportunity to represent those communities in Westminster and I hope you will give me that chance by voting for me on July 4th.
