To elect Lee Taylor, a patriot and a fellow Yorkshireman, to be Member of Parliament for Richmond and Northallerton for GE 2024.

by Matthew Cooke in United Kingdom


"I am nobody. I am everybody. Just a man of the crowd.

Like many just a once serving patriot soldier with our Great British flag flying proud.

When those we entrust with power, fall at their word…

Those with passion will stand up and lead the surge…

Ensuring what matters - people’s voices are heard

That is the essence of the only party I will proudly serve…"


Early Childhood

I was born and grew up in Yorkshire, and have travelled extensively, living abroad as part of my military service and tours of duty.  But it is Yorkshire that was in my heart, and after I left the military came to settle near Catterick, North Yorkshire with my wife and young family.


Military Career

I served for 22 years in the British Army, as a Radar Technician in The Royal Electrical and Mechanical Engineers.  I had to remain politically impartial for so long.

During this time, I had always hoped that those elected would be the brightest and best minds to love and steer our country to greatness. This evidently has not been the case.


The inaction or incompetence, failing to deliver the will of the British people is a national disgrace.


The Decision to Stand

The 31st of January 2024 was my last day my military service to the King and Country.  I’m a brand-new veteran who now has a voice. 

Under the banner of Britain's most ambitious and energised party, Reform UK, I now have the greatest privilege of presenting myself as the people's Parliamentary Prospective Candidate for Richmond and Northallerton.

I have travelled and lived all over the UK and abroad, I have served a tour of Iraq and two tours of Afghanistan and enjoyed the amazing opportunity service life can offer.  I have made many memories such as the proud moment I competed in the Army tri-service Judo competition held onboard the HMS Queen Elizabeth battleship on the day of the queens 75- year jubilee celebration.  

In 2017, my wife and I fell in love with North Yorkshire and we decided not to leave. We bought a modest house in Catterick Garrison to raise our family. As a local man I am passionate about our area and keeping it beautiful and safe for our children and future generations to enjoy.


I endeavour to ‘serve to lead’ the people of this area and will stand up for local issues and the views of the majority across our great country. A logical thinker, who believes in free speech and the right to perceive, I will be an advocate for fairness and common sense, with no interest of being swayed by big donors or making decisions based on self-interest for future roles. In my opinion, there is no place for this in our parliament.


For those who feel as I do and believe that the current parliamentary establishment is no longer fit to deliver for the people, I ask you to spread the word: Every vote for us is a vote for real change. What our country is crying out for, is a party that is innovative, bold, and not afraid to challenge the status quo. A party with backbone. That party is Reform UK.

What I Stand For

  • Stronger borders
    Zero tolerance on illegal migration
  • Stronger defence
    Increase to defence spending to enhance the nation's security
  • Food security
    Better support for farmers, protection of British food industry
  • Zero tolerance policing
  • Lower taxes
    £20k personal allowance, 20% Corporation Tax
  • Protection of NHS

I humbly ask all the great people living in the constituency of Richmond and Northallerton to send me as your ambassador to London, and let me secure the best deal for you all.
