Councillor to fight for MP’s seat
THE Conservatives believe they can beat John McDonnell in Hayes and Harlington next year – and feel they have just the woman to do it.
Pearl Lewis, 27, will take on the Labour left-winger in the 2015 general election.
She is currently an Aylesbury Vale district councillor from Milton Keynes and works for the University of Buckingham.
Anti-third runway, she said: “The work starts now on an all-out campaign to win.
“I am especially against any airport expansion at Heathrow. I also look forward to working with our local businesses to support families back into work and keep our high streets thriving.”
Mr McDonnell, first elected in the 1997 Labour landslide, had a majority of almost 11,000 at the last general election.
