Brendan Clarke-Smith, the Tory MP hailed as “the King of the Red Wall,” has initiated a crowdfunding campaign to support his reelection bid, cautioning that a Labour victory would jeopardize Brexit, allow unlimited illegal migrants into the UK, and extend the despised ULEZ tax to towns and cities nationwide.
Since 2019, Bassetlaw MP Brendan Clarke-Smith has emerged as one of the most vocal Conservative MPs who successfully broke through the Red Wall of traditionally Labour-held seats.
As a former headteacher, he now serves as the chairman of the Blue Collar Conservatism Group and is an influential member of the Common Sense Group, actively addressing issues concerning immigration and the culture wars.
However, with the latest tracker poll indicating a 19-point deficit for the Conservatives, Clarke-Smith faces a challenge from Labour’s Jo White, who is the wife of Lord Mann, the former Labour MP for his constituency.
Despite receiving support from CCHQ, Clarke-Smith believes the battle is crucial for the future of the UK and has therefore agreed to launch a crowdfunding appeal to aid his campaign.
Clarke-Smith warns that many voters have yet to comprehend the peril that Labour poses to Britain and the lives of ordinary citizens.
In an interview with SurgeZirc UK, he states, “If Labour wins, they will attempt to reverse Brexit, enforce ULEZ charges on every town, impoverishing working people, their families, and their businesses, while trampling over women’s rights in the name of extreme gender ideology. We cannot allow that to happen.”
Labor candidates in target seats have already been endorsed by pro-EU associates who advocate for rejoining the EU, raising concerns about Labour adopting similar policies.
Moreover, there are fears that Labour may adopt the SNP’s stance on gender reidentification, potentially endangering women’s safe spaces and child welfare.
Clarke-Smith further expresses alarm at Angela Rayner’s recent revelation that Labour’s plans include extending the £12.50 charge proposed by Sadiq Khan in the Ultra Low Emission Zone expansion to towns and cities across the UK.
This comes despite Labour’s loss in the Uxbridge and South Ruislip by-elections due to Khan’s ULEZ scheme.
Left-wing individuals on Twitter have derided Mr. Clarke-Smith’s crowdfunding appeal, despite it being a tactic they often employ themselves.
The appeal website highlights Clarke-Smith’s accomplishments since his election in 2019, including securing funding for Bassetlaw Hospital, a new Skills Hub, Safer Streets funding, Levelling Up funding, and the multi-billion-pound STEP fusion project at West Burton.
GB News has even bestowed upon him the title of “King of the Red Wall.”
Donations are being sought to support Brendan Clarke-Smith’s reelection and his ongoing efforts to serve the constituency of Bassetlaw.
Mr. Clarke-Smith has already raised sufficient funds for a leaflet distribution campaign throughout his constituency.
