My name is Ian Harper and I am the Reform UK Scotland Candidate for the Edinburgh South West Constituency.

I’m  married to Helen and we live in Livingston, West Lothian. At our age, family has flown the nest, therefore our only dependent is Cheeto, our dog who Helen rescued through a Scottish Charity and has been given a new lease of life, love and affection.
I started off working life serving an apprenticeship, became a Journeyman as a motor engineer, then transferred my skills into Commercial Catering Equipment where I have been a small business owner, sole trader selling and maintaining equipment in the Hospitality sector since the end of last century.
I have now earned a living on the tools for fifty years. 
I know how to fix things.
I have never been a member of a political party before, however, my personal interests in local and global current affairs have been prominent and sometimes intense, as most of my family and friends can attest!
My most critical observation of the elected representatives and governments who now overreach into our lives was intensified in the last four years.  The corruption in my own personal opinion has been eye watering.  This is not an opinion formed by digesting legacy media and second hand commentary but an experience formed of four years of activity, directly communicating with my elected representatives through email, Zoom meetings and face to face meetings.
I have observed the incompetence, intransigence and the utter disregard for constituants health and wellbeing displayed first hand, to the benefit of a globalist agenda that ultimately wants to deprive us of our sovereignty and liberty.
This country is in trouble.
I thought, as did others I spoke to, that all hope was lost until I discovered Reform UK. As I read their CONTRACT with the people (not a manifesto) I discovered that it could not have been more aligned with my own thoughts, I was excited to discover for the first time there was a political party that spoke to me.  I had to get involved, I had to offer my help, I had to share my enthusiasm for what they stand for, REAL BRITISH VALUES and COMMON SENSE (Because it is no longer common anymore.)
For the first time in my life, I joined a political party. 
But I have to do more.
That is why I have decided to stand as a Candidate in the Edinburgh Southwest Constituency for Reform UK Scotland. 
We need to ditch the globalist corporate driven agendas forced upon us by other captured political parties who serve up a disruptive Woke, Net Zero, Open Borders dystopia that will collapse our society and bankrupt our nation.
We need to REFORM our country together.
