It would be surprising if constituents shared Dominic Raab's strong support of the issues below.
This in turn raises the question whether he is representing the views of his constituents.

- Licensing our area for fracking
- Heathrow expansion (bringing increased aircraft noise to Thames Ditton)
- No cap on rail fares (resulting in annual above-inflation fare increases for the ever worsening train service)
- Increasing VAT
- Reducing central government funding for local councils (will result in above-inflation council tax increases)

- Against raising welfare benefits at least in line with prices

Is Raab representing us, his constituents, in his voting ?[/quote]

Clearly so, because he won a massive majority again and helped return the only viable national government option to Westminster. The alternative was devoid of economic policy to fund their Social experiments and a return to the 1970''s.

Dominic Raab is indeed to the right of his party. He is a member of a far right group called 'Free Enterprise'. You can find out more on my website vote-citizen.com where I have looked at his voting record on key local issues.

Raab's voting pattern demonstrates his position on the extreme right of his party.

Matters he has voted strongly in favour of include:

1. Heathrow expansion
2. No cap on rail fare increases
3. Fracking in our constituency
4. The badger cull

He was the only candidate not to turn up at the Hustings in Oxshott - his last chance to meet voters before the General Election.

Below are some of his other votes - more on www.theyworkforyou.com/mp/24815/dominic_raab/esher_and_walton
Voted strongly for reducing central government funding of local government
Voted very strongly for greater restrictions on campaigning by third parties, such as charities, during elections
Voted moderately for an equal number of electors per parliamentary constituency Details
Voted very strongly for increasing the rate of VAT
Voted very strongly against raising welfare benefits at least in line with prices
Voted very strongly for university tuition fees

Is Raab representing us, his constituents, in his voting ?
