The Liberal Democrats have selected Khalil Yousuf as their candidate for the Farnham & Bordon constituency. Farnham & Bordon is a newly created constituency encompassing 20 wards across Bordon, Farnham and Haslemere.

Khalil is a successful lawyer with an office in Farnham, and strong ties to community groups across the constituency. His brother, a GP lives in Bordon, where Khalil is planning to soon make his own home.

The Farnham & Bordon election will be a two-horse race between the Liberal Democrats and the Conservatives.

A seat-by-seat YouGov poll published this week in the Daily Telegraph shows that Farnham & Bordon is expected to be a Liberal Democrat gain.

Khalil speaking

Khalil said: “Sadly, far too many hard-working families across our constituency are struggling to pay their bills because of a cost-of-living crisis that is only getting worse. It is a travesty that families have to rely on food banks and volunteer support to make ends meet.

“Little has been done to clean up the River Wey, which is still filled with hazardous pollution from sewage dumped by Thames Water.

“And our health service has been starved of proper funding and clinician driven management for far too long. The result is that when our constituents become unwell, they can’t get an appointment to see their GP in a reasonable time. As at July 2023, waiting lists for diagnostic tests in Frimley Health NHS Trust reached more than 36,199, up 57% on 2019. In Hampshire Hospitals NHS Trusts, 12,563 people were on diagnostic tests waiting lists, up 29% on 2019.

“We need a strong Liberal Democrat voice in Parliament to challenge these and other injustices. If elected, job as an MP will be to serve the 72,000+ residents of this constituency; to be their advocate, their defender and a relentless voice for them in Parliament. I am determined to succeed in that. Constituents can contact me at AskKhalilAnything@gmail.com

The Conservatives are well-funded, and a campaign to beat them in Surrey and North-East Hampshire will easily cost tens of thousands of pounds. Can you help Khalil with a donation to help meet our costs?
