General Election 2019: 20-year-old Liberal Democrat candidate says there has been no progress on saving Grantham Hospital
Sleaford and North Hykeham Liberal Democrat candidate Oliver Craven says Grantham Hospital has been starved of funding by the government.
Mr Craven, 20, who lives in Long Bennington, said he went into politics because he was let down by safe seat MPs 'who don't give a toss'. "I was canvassing in Long Bennington at the weekend and not one person I talked to had ever had a Conservative MP over the past 20 years come and knock on their door. There were people who had lived there for 25 years who had never had a candidate from any party turn up. That's something I want to fix. It's not about sending me to parliament. It's about sending somebody who will listen to people."
Mr Craven said: "Caroline Johnson has been in part of Government for three years and there has been no progress on helping to save Grantham Hospital whatever she pretends. You can go along to a march to save Grantham Hospital, but if you are not putting the work in for it then it's entirely meaningless."
