Carlo de Chair

I’m standing as a candidate in these elections because I’m a pro-European but against the democratic deficit which has steadily built up over the years by national governments ceding ever more powers to Brussels with fewer and fewer democratic checks and balances. The European Parliament doesn’t enact legislation in the same way as a British parliament does. It is there to rubber stamp the edicts of Brussels so it is little wonder that countries which have recently become independent states are unwilling to bow to the unelected, unaccountable bureaucrats in Brussels and are truly supportive of our proposed reforms. Our voices will not be heard until there is a party large enough to take on the Commission. Only a pan-European party such as Libertas can win enough seats to form a majority at Strasbourg and make the changes we need.

I was born in Norfolk and still live in the county. After school I served in the British Army including postings to Cyprus and Northern Ireland. I’ve subsequently had a varied business career: as a farmer, developer, and in the insurance industry. I currently run a fashion company with my wife, Laura so I’ve seen at first hand the problems that distant and irrelevance legislation can cause individuals and businesses and the sheer volume of bureaucratic red-tape that is strangling small businesses. On a personal level, my father was an MP and I’ve served as a local councillor in Essex where I used to live. I’d like to continue serving the people of East Anglia as an MEP in the European Parliament where I believe we can really make a difference to people’s lives.
