BREAKING: Heidi Allen Joins The Independent Group

February 20, 2019

Same Difference has liked Heidi Allen for some time, particularly since she did this.

Here is her profile from the Independent Group website:

Elected as the Member of Parliament for South Cambridgeshire in 2015 and again in 2017, Heidi Allen came to politics from business, having worked for 18 years in a variety of industries. Prior to running her own manufacturing business, she worked in the private sector for organisations such as ExxonMobil and the public sector with the Royal Mail.

This combination of broad business knowledge, plus a degree in Astrophysics and also in law, means Heidi has been able to represent the diverse interests of her constituency and promote the growth of its small and medium sized enterprises and high-tech industries too. Having grown up in rural Yorkshire, she also understands the rural way of life and the inherent challenges often faced.

Since her election, Heidi has gained a reputation for being an independently minded backbencher, unafraid to speak out in the House of Commons. A member of the Work and Pensions Select Committee, she has influenced the national debate on the funding and delivery of the welfare state, regularly speaking up for families on low incomes and for the disabled. Heidi was the lead campaigner on the Conservative benches and was at the heart of all the funding and structural improvements made to Universal Credit prior to joining the Independent Group.

She was awarded the “Conservative Newcomer MP of the Year” in 2016 for her work in representing the vulnerable and marginalised. She was also instrumental in the Government agreeing to take in more child refugees displaced by the war in Syria and was recognised again for her work on this issue winning “Conservative MP of the Year” in 2017.

Representing a strong remain constituency, she is determined to play her part in ensuring Brexit does not damage the economy, security and people’s lives. As such, she was one of the Conservative MPs who backed the Grieve amendment in 2017, which ensured Parliament has a vote on the final deal. This has proved to be absolutely fundamental as the Brexit debacle has unfolded.

Heidi is married to Phil who runs the family manufacturing business. They live in South Cambridgeshire with two cats!

    INACTION speaks a lot louder than Politicians hot air blowing Bullsh1t.

    “In July 2015, Allen was elected to the Work and Pensions Select Committee” –

    And it is STILL there –

    Those Work and Pensions Select Committee criminals are STILL completely ignoring EVERYTHING I’ve sent to them. Online form and directly in emails.


    So where are their Police??? STILL.

    Rats jumping ship, won’t wash the blood off their paws.

    The ‘Public Duties’ of *all* Members of Parliament –

    “5. Members have a duty to ***uphold the law***, including the general law against discrimination.”

    “10. Members shall base their conduct on a consideration of the public interest, avoid conflict between personal interest and the public interest and resolve any conflict between the two, at once, and in favour of the public interest.”

    Misconduct in Public Office –
    (Up to life in prison for not doing their jobs)
