South Thanet Conservative Association

Statement from the South Thanet Conservative Association

We were totally shocked to hear that charges have been made against Craig Mackinlay.

As an Association we worked with Craig throughout the campaign and are convinced that there are no grounds for these charges at all and that he will be completely exonerated in due course.  He continues to have our total support.

We will continue to work hard alongside Craig to ensure his re-election on 8th June.

Thank you

My thanks go to you, the voters of South Thanet who renewed their trust in me to serve as your MP for the next five years.

My local team of volunteers were amazing, delivering across the constituency covering Cliftonville, Broadstairs and St Peters, Ramsgate, Sandwich and the Villages. They made countless calls, erected posters, and we spoke to thousands of residents on the doorstep across the constituency in the short campaign.

I secured 25,262 votes, and a majority of 6,387 (in 2015 it was 2,812) representing 50.9% of the votes cast.
