Welcome to the web site of David Chappell

Parliamentary Campaigner for Bury St Edmunds

Since the excellent result of the 2010 General Election for the Liberal Democrats in Bury St Edmunds David has been focussing on work, including being appointed as Senior Contract Administrator on the Kingdom Tower which, at 1018m high, is planned to be the tallest building in the world.

He is still active in supporting the Liberal Democrats, especially as 57 Lib Dem MPs have been able to implement 75% of their manifesto promises whereas over 250 Labour MPs have not had any of their manifesto policy implemented.

David took the Lib Dem vote from 6,000 to over 15,000 in Bury St Edmunds and he has continued supporting the local community when work has permitted.

David was confirmed as the Lib Dem candidate for Bury St Edmunds in 2015 on Friday 28th November with 92% of the local party vote!

    Obviously, a quiz about who to vote for on the Lib Dem website was always going to strongly suggest that you'll probably want to vote for the Liberal Democrats.

    But we're very proud of our Plan to Build a Brighter Future.

    From stopping Brexit, to properly investing in our schools and hospitals, to fighting the climate emergency - The Liberal Democrats are the only party with a coherent, inspiring vision for tomorrow.

    There are currently over 4,500 Commonwealth soldiers serving in the British Armed Forces. 1.7m men and women of the Commonwealth forces gave their lives for us during the two World Wars.

    We owe them all a great debt - yet we are not doing nearly enough to support them.

    The Home Office is making a profit off the back of veterans who have risked their lives to protect us.

    Whether renting or buying, too many people across the country - people who work hard and play by the rules - are struggling to afford good homes in in the right location.

    We are facing a national housing crisis. Both Labour and the Conservatives, in pursuing Brexit, show they are wiling to risk 10% of our construction workers who are from the EU, making this crisis worse.

    Last night, we held our Liberal Democrat manifesto launch event in Camden, North London, where Jo Swinson laid out our ambitious government plans for both people and the planet.

    In her speech, Jo emphasised that the Liberal Democrats are the only party that can take votes away from the Conservatives, the only party that will stop Brexit and the only party that can build a brighter future for our country.

    Today, we can finally share our full Plan for the Future with you!

    This manifesto is a bold plan to build a brighter future for our country.

    That starts with stopping Brexit.

    The Liberal Democrats will build a brighter future for people and our planet.

    Labour and the Conservatives can't offer the country a brighter future because they both want Brexit. We know that will be bad for our economy, bad for our NHS and bad for our environment.

    For too many people, things aren't working as they should be. The Conservatives and Labour are stuck in the past, failing time and again to deliver a better future.

    Brexit chaos has distracted from the real issues facing our country. While the Tories and Labour are squabbling over the latest Brexit deal, the country is in crisis.

    "Inexplicable and shameful."

    "Inexplicable and shameful." - Hillary Clinton on the UK government's refusal to publish a report into Russian interference in British politics.

    Yeesh. It's almost like she has experience with childish leaders lying to get their own way.

    Hillary Clinton knows first-hand what it feels like to go up against Russian interference into elections. While investigations are still ongoing, many close to Trump are already in jail - for collusion with Russian politicians during the 2016 Election.

    20th November is Trans Day of Remembrance. Every year, we take a moment to remember those in the trans community who have been lost too soon. Too many are killed or are made to feel like they have no choice but to end their lives for simply being who they are.

    We proudly champion the T, alongside the LGB, for a society where no-one is made to feel unsafe or worthless because of who they are or who they love.

    Our schools should be world class, helping every child make the most of the challenges ahead. But instead, they are trailing behind.

    The Conservatives have cut school funding to the bone and children have paid the price, especially those with the most complex needs.

    Highly valued, well trained teachers are the most important resource we have in our education system. Liberal Democrats will recruit 20,000 more teachers and give them the pay and support they deserve.
