Gideon Amos

The best choice to be our next MP

  • Supporting you - Fighting for properly funded and staffed public services like the NHS and the police. Working to make sure everyone gets help when things get tough, from rising energy bills to childcare
     
  • Restoring trust - Being visible, responding to residents needs and concerns and championing local businesses
     
  • Protecting our planet - Pushing for the environment to be central to policy making and fundamental to our economy, giving us energy security.

We need more MPs like Gideon – people who love Taunton and Wellington and want to get things done for our communities.

He has built a strong reputation as a hard-working campaigner for Taunton and Wellington.

Gideon cares passionately for Taunton and Wellington

He believes we need a positive plan for our country like the Liberal Democrats’ fair deal, putting the NHS and social care as our number one priority - funded by restoring the tax on bank profits, cancelled by the Conservatives.

We need an MP who stands up to the government for people here, rather than just doing what someone in No.10 tells them.

“It’s time for a new start. It’s time to put an end to the self-serving politicians in Westminster and to bring back people we can trust. I want to be that MP for this, my community.”

Gideon is campaigning on key issues

  • The NHS - The Conservatives failed to build the new Taunton hospital promised people at the last election. It’s now increasingly difficult to access GPs and dentists. Lib Dems would recruit and train 8,000 more GPs so everyone can get an appointment within seven days
     
  • Cost of Living - Reckless handling of our economy has caused mortgages and prices to shoot up higher and higher. Lib Dems would tax energy company profits, rebuild our relationship and trade with Europe, and stabilise our economy
     
  • Environment - The Conservatives have allowed water companies to dump dirty sewage in our rivers and streams. Lib Dems would ban bonuses for the bosses responsible and replace their firms with public interest companies with a duty to protect our environment.

Gideon has a record of standing up to the government

He led a successful campaign which won a U-turn on Conservative government proposals to close the Royal Marines’ Norton Manor Camp.

Working with Friends of his local park, he has helped achieve a new status for a bathing area in the River Tone, making its water quality public for the first time and securing measures which will now need to be taken to clean it up.

People just want a fair deal from those in charge. That’s what Gideon is standing for in this election.
