Matthew Wood, The Brexit Party – Crewe and Nantwich – GE19 candidate


We are providing all 39 parliamentary candidates across Cheshire the opportunity to tell our readers what their priorities are, and to tell us a little more about themselves.

We’ve asked the same five questions of each candidate, for the simplest comparison, and we have invited candidates to supply social media and website links if they choose to.

In this article, we speak to Matthew Wood, standing for The Brexit Party in Crewe and Nantwich.



1. What is the main reason you’ve decided to stand in this election?

I was determined to see the wishes of 17 million votes cast in 2016 delivered.


2. Which local priorities would you take forward as our MP?

Protecting jobs and creating more housing.


3. Which national priorities would you take forward as our MP?

Brexit delivered.


4. What is it about your party and/or its manifesto that makes you proud to represent your party? Are there any manifesto pledges or commitments you’d like to see changed?

The Brexit Party is the only one determined to deliver Brexit and total reform of our democratic system. The first past the post system is inherently unfair and must be replaced.


5. Please tell us a little about yourself.

(ie: your background, your experience, your hobbies, your non-political interests)
