Rupert grew up in West Norfolk and went to school in Downham Market. He now lives and works in Queen Adelaide as a Security Consultant. Rupert still has close family and friends in West Norfolk and understands the daily challenges facing our community. He will fight to protect our public services from damaging Tory cuts and do all he can to stop the disastrous Hard Brexit supported by Theresa May and Jeremy Corbyn.
In Cambridge he led a successful local campaign against a national developer and subsequently was elected to the county council. His experience in law enforcement, cyber-security, and protecting our civil liberties was invaluable when he was selected to stand for Police and Crime Commissioner for Cambridgeshire in 2012 and 2016. He has also served on the Cambridge Fire Authority.
Rupert is passionate about environmental sustainability and conservation and will always oppose waste incineration in West Norfolk. He aims to protect and improve local amenities and services across the area, including affordable housing and better transport links. Rupert pledges to defend and expand health and social care provision and support the more vulnerable members of the community, including the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in King’s Lynn and the Fermoy Unit. If elected, he would always campaign for NW Norfolk to get a fair deal from Borough and County Councils and from Westminster. Rupert aims to enable our communities to thrive as open and tolerant places to live, work, or visit.
