Chris Coghlan for Dorking & Horley


It's Lib Dem vs Conservative in Dorking & Horley


  • Local people trust the Liberal Democrats - they hold 75% of the District and Borough Council seats across the constituency.
  • Labour have declared Dorking & Horley is not a target seat for them - in Mole Valley they never finished better than 3rd. Across Horley in the May Local Elections Labour finished 4th.
  • The Green Party are a distant 4th (or 5th) here - their supporters are telling us they will vote tactically at the General Election.

A vote for Lib Dem Chris Coghlan is a vote for a Fair Deal

"I love this area. It’s where I grew up, where I live and where my children go to school. But my wife and I worry about the future of our family. Will my three little girls find good jobs when they grow up and be able to afford to live around here? Will the NHS still be there to care for them? Will our beautiful countryside be protected for them? With this government, I fear not.

My career has taken me from The City to the British Army fighting ISIS terrorists in the deserts of Iraq. Now I'm campaigning for change.

We deserve better than a government whose choices have caused so much damage. For decades this area has had Conservative MPs, and they take your vote for granted. Now, recent polling across Surrey shows many of you are fed-up and want change. The Lib Dems are level with the Conservatives in the polls in Dorking & Horley. I promise, if you put your faith in me at the ballot box, I will fight harder than I’ve ever done to give you, and your children, the country and future you all deserve."

2024 will almost certainly see a General Election and it can’t come too soon. Many people have told me that they are fed up with being taken for granted by this Government. They worrythe Conservatives are completely out of touch with the residents they are supposed to represent, preoccupied with fighting amongst themselves.

I was brought up to believe that an MP is elected to serve their community. It’s the same sense of service that motivated my experience at the Foreign Office, in the Army Reserve, and as founder of an international charity.

It’s a sense of service I share with the heroes who work for our NHS and Care Services - despite everything, the Conservatives have always taken them for granted too. 

I am standing to be your next MP. With your support, I will fight to restore our great NHS. And, I will stand-up for our communities in Parliament.

£4 billion for NHS cancer treatments

The Liberal Democrats would give cancer patients a new legal right to treatment within two months of an urgent referral, to make sure you get the care that you deserve.
