MARIA'S PLAN

According to her website on the 1st of January 2018, this was:

 

1. Better Road and Rail Services

"The road and rail infrastructure in the constituency is sadly lacking, and this is not only making life difficult for ordinary residents but it is estimated that it adversely affects local businesses - costing the Sussex economy around £2 billion a year.!

2. Better Health Services

"As a nurse I am passionate about not only protecting NHS services but also improving them for local residents."

3. Transport Secretary Chris Grayling Delivering £75 million for the A27

"After years of broken promises, I have worked hard alongside other Conservative colleagues to secure £75 million for the A27. This is just the start and with the consultation with local residents starting we can secure future funding, if needed, to deliver a safer and less congested route."

4. Supporting the Local Economy

"The number one issue on the door step is the economy, and while the Conservatives nationally have turned the economy around I am keen to replicate the national trend locally and I will support local businesses, protect local jobs and bring more investment in to the local economy."

5. Standing up for villages

"The constituency of Lewes has a unique character, from the historic town of Lewes, through to the coastal towns of Newhaven and Seaford and including the rural villages such as Ditchling, Wivelsfield, Chailey and Alfriston. Each and every part of the constituency is different and unique."

6. Protecting Our Green Spaces

"I will campaign to retain the rural essence of the constituency, including campaigning against inappropriate developments that do not have the necessary infrastructure to support them."

 

 

 

UN AGENDAS -  With Blue Growth and the Climate Change Act 2008 firmly in the political map, we wonder how the Lewes MP might face the challenges ahead.

 

Julienne Stroeve, a climate scientist at the National Snow and Ice Data Center in Boulder, Colorado, told Sputnik News about the changes taking place in the Arctic Ocean and what exactly this bodes for us in the foreseeable future.

“The changes are the largest in the summertime, but they are actually happening during all months of the year. I think the key things we really need to understand is, first, the natural climate variability and, second, changes caused by increased human activity. At thea current rate of carbon emissions of about 35 to 40 gigatons a year, we are estimating that the Arctic could become ice-free within the next 20 years,” Dr. Stroeve said. “What we need to do [to avoid this] is to pressure the governments to move off the path of fossil-based economy to the use of more reusable energy. It is essential to mitigate [the impact of global warming],” she emphasized.

 

 

What we are concerned about is Climate Change that creates acid oceans and carcinogenic hazes over many countries when the sun is shining brightly. Climate change affects nearly all of the issues that Ms Caulfield is campaigning about, but at an overview level. We know that Maria is concerned about the health of the nation and the state of the NHS. It follows that she will be worried about Marine Litter when she discovers (and probably already has) that plastic is the ocean is being eaten by the fish that we eat. That being the case, fish loaded with toxins cannot be good for the health of our nation or the National Health Service.

 

 

 

 

ABORTION SPUC - SOCIETY FOR THE PROTECTION OF UNBORN CHILDREN - MARCH 2017

 

Maria Caulfield, the Conservative MP for Lewes, made a strong speech defending unborn children and vulnerable mothers during a debate in Parliament that sought to completely decriminalise abortion.

 

Yesterday, Diana Johnson, the Labour MP for Kingston upon Hull North, brought forward her Reproductive Health (Access to Terminations) bill, which sought to remove abortion from criminal law, thereby allowing it up to birth and for any reason. The bill narrowly passed its first reading, but has next to no chance of becoming law, due to a lack of parliamentary time.

 

The gall of the abortion industry 

Diana Johnson argued that the "Victorian" abortion laws needed to be updated, especially in light of the growing availability of abortion pills online. Maria Caulfield began her rebuttal by dismissing the "progressive" credentials of the bill, saying it would be a "charter for unsafe abortion practises".

 

She went on to attack the backers of the bill, which include the abortion provider BPAS.

"That brings me to the current state of the abortion industry in the UK. I am amazed that the Bill’s backers, including private abortion providers, have the gall to propose these changes, which would remove regulations at a time when the UK abortion industry is knee-deep in revelations of unethical, unsafe and unprofessional practices," she said, describing in detail the recent revelations of breaches in safety, especially as found by the CQC report into Marie Stopes. "No wonder these abortion providers are calling for a Bill that would get rid of the regulations and safeguards in the Abortion Act."

 

Would leave women vulnerable to abuse 

Maria Caulfield also challenged the idea that the increasing availability of abortion pills means there should be less regulation, making the point that abusive partners would find it easier to force women into an abortion if they could easily obtain pills online. Women would also be left more vulnerable to abuse by removing the requirement that they be seen by a qualified doctor (something 92% of British women support). She said the bill "would exacerbate the dangers posed by increased availability of abortion pills and it would remove some of the few protections and regulations in abortion law, fuelling unethical and unsafe practices in many UK abortion clinics and leaving women less safe and less informed."

Human dignity and equality 

Throughout her speech, Maria Caulfield referred to "the unborn child" and talked about how decriminalisation would be particularly dangerous for those babies at risk of being aborted for their gender or disability. The law, she said, must reflect a "fuller and richer understanding of human dignity and equality...which does not treat children as commodities and which does not treat marginalised people such as young girls or children with Down’s syndrome as burdens or inconveniences."

"Too often today, debates about abortion—about the risks involved and the rights of the unborn child—are shut down; but I, and many colleagues who share my views, will not be silenced as we seek to be a voice for the voiceless, and as we argue for more modern and humane abortion law that upholds not only the dignity and rights of women but the dignity and rights of the unborn child."

 

 

 

 

PREVENTION IS BETTER THAN CURE

 

One possible partial solution to abortion is to prosecute both parties in the making of a child when they are under 16 - since such sexual acts are illegal - but irresponsible young mothers and fathers, though under the age to be able to have sexual intercourse legally, they escape the consequences of breaking the law. By prosecuting under-age offenders and sentencing them to jail time, the abortion rate would fall dramatically. At the moment underage parents are never prosecuted. Indeed, they are encouraged to procreate with free contraception from doctors, when that contraception cannot be used legally - meaning that the medical profession is encouraging under-age sex.

 

ENTRAPMENT PREVENTION

 

In addition, single parent mothers should face questioning as to whether they used contraception when becoming pregnant, and if not whether the male was (duped) under the impression that he was having protected sex. Women found to have intentionally made themselves pregnant without a partner, should face serious sanctions - and perhaps their names put on a list of "High-Risk" partners for men to be able to check what they are letting themselves in for.

 

There should be no benefits against intentionally trapping a male like this and no Child Support requirement. Obviously, there would need to be some kind of safety net, such as secure housing (soft prisons) for what amounts to fraudulent invitations to safe intercourse - that is actually unsafe and could affect the male deleteriously for the rest of his working life.

 

Though such suggestions may be highly contentious, the UK provides sex education and contraception of all kinds to the male and female population in schools so that there is no excuse. In under-developed nations such as Africa and Asia, there is good reason for unwanted births - including forced sex (rape) - even where there is limited food and water to support population increase - leading to starvation and death.

 

 

 

ABOUT MS CAULFIELD

 

Maria Colette Caulfield (born 6 August 1973) is a British Conservative Party politician in the United Kingdom. She was first elected as the Member of Parliament (MP) for the Lewes constituency in 2015.

As a nurse, she eventually specialized in Cancer research and moved to the south coast of England where she worked at the Royal Sussex County Hospital and the Princess Royal Hospital and then the Royal Marsden. She became involved with the Conservative Party after joining a campaign to save local hospitals in the Brighton area.

In 2007 Brighton and Hove City Council election, Caulfield became a member of the local city council for the previously safe Labour ward of Moulsecoomb. She served in the cabinet of the then Conservative authority and held the Housing Portfolio. In the 2011 local election she lost her seat to the Labour Party candidate.

At the 2010 general election she unsuccessfully stood in the Caerphilly constituency, a safe Labour seat, coming second to Wayne David, the defending sitting MP.

 

 

 

 

For several years, she held the role of Deputy Regional Chairman for the South East Conservatives and was a Co-ordinator in the NO2AV campaign in the 2011 AV referendum. In 2013, she was selected for her local constituency of Lewes by the Lewes Conservative Association, and at the 2015 general election she overturned a 7,647 majority and defeated the incumbent Liberal Democrat MP Norman Baker.

Caulfield backed Brexit during the 2016 EU membership referendum. However, this view was not shared by the majority of her constituents, as 52.1% of voters in the Lewes constituency voted to remain a member of the European Union.

A practicing Roman Catholic, she supports lowering the current abortion time limit.

Ms Caulfield lives with her partner and fiancé Steve Bell who is an ex-serviceman and now works as a builder. He is also a Brighton and Hove City Councillor, as well as being active in the voluntary party and was President (2015-16) of the Conservative National Convention, the organizing body of the voluntary party.
