I am honoured to have received the trust and support of residents here in North Westminster as your Member of Parliament.

At the General Election on 8 June I will stand as a strong voice for our community, helping thousands of residents every year with issues and problems through my constituency work.

We’ve had a Conservative government since 2010, a Conservative Council since 1963 and a Conservative Mayor of London from 2008 until last year. Now Theresa May has called this election - having promised not to - to try and pack Parliament with Conservatives to do whatever they want, over Brexit and many other policies.

This risks:
- The worst possible outcome from leaving the EU, damaging jobs and businesses, bringing economic uncertainty and already putting a squeeze on living standards
- Going ahead with deep cuts to school budgets, hitting London schools hardest
- Running down our NHS with longer waits for hospital treatment - having already slashed home care for older and disabled people
- Deepening the housing crisis – building more and more luxury flats while local people can’t afford a home to rent or buy, worsening homelessness (already up by 130% since 2010)

It is more important than ever that we have the balance of a Labour MP fighting in the interests of North Westminster residents - and only a Labour vote here can stop the Conservatives.

I’m looking forward to meeting you in the coming weeks, but please get in touch if you’d like to help with my campaign.
