Title: For Britain are pleased to announce that Hugh Nicklin has been selected as the party candidate to fight the Newport West by-election
For Britain are pleased to announce that Hugh Nicklin has been selected as the party candidate to fight the Newport West by-election, to be held on April the 4th.
Hugh commented: “Newport West deserves better than Labour – and that’s why I’m standing For Britain, a party that is in tune with the public not the Westminster bubble.
For years, Labour and the Tories have failed us, and now with their Brexit incompetence and betrayal, the people of this great country know for sure that these old parties represent nobody but themselves.
I am a retired teacher, a father, and a lover of rugby! I played for Llangwm and Narberth, a qualified WRU referee, as well as previously serving as Vice Chairman of the Welsh Schools' Cricket Association.
I know Wales, and I will stand up for its decent people. No more empty promises from career politicians, For Britain is here to bring long lasting change to politics, ignoring right and left stereotypes.
My priorities are:-
End mass immigration
End politically correct policing.
Protect health services.
Invest in local infrastructure and job creation.
Further Background on Hugh:
Hugh Nicklin was born in Worcestershire to an English father and a Welsh mother. He attended a state primary school and Worcester Royal Grammar school, and was awarded an Open Scholarship in History to Hertford College, Oxford, in 1961.
After graduating he obtained a Diploma in Education from Oxford University Department of Education. Inspired by the comprehensive ideal, he chose a comprehensive school at random and joined the staff of Fairham Comprehensive School in Nottingham. After a period at Bilborough Mixed Grammar School he was appointed Head of History at Haverfordwest Grammar School in 1973.
He played rugby for Llangwm and Narberth, and cricket for Burton and Haverfordwest. He retained his teaching post under reorganisation, and was Head of History at Tasker Milward VC Comprehensive School from 1978-1990. During that time he worked for school cricket, and was Vice Chairman of the Welsh Schools' Cricket Association. He was elected a parent governor of the school.
Appalled by the National History Curriculum of 1990, he moved to the independent sector, and was Head of History, Classics and RE, and Boys' Housemaster at The Downs School, Colwall, until his retirement in 2004. He then lived in the South of France for eleven years, writing two history books and two pantomimes for the local French primary school. Missing teaching then went to another year as Head of History at the prestigious Dhirubhai Ambani International School in Bombay.
Hugh now lives in Herefordshire and up till very recently was Treasurer at a local Village Hall. He is still an active member of a local Cricket and Rugby Clubs.
