I am the Labour Member of Parliament for Hornsey & Wood Green.
Nine years of crippling austerity under the Tories and the Lib Dems has left our hospitals, schools, police and social care system at breaking point. We desperately need a Labour Government with an alternative vision for Britain to tackle these challenges and ensure we have properly funded public services.
As your MP, I’ve been standing up for our community in Parliament and fighting against a Brexit that would further devastate our economy. I voted against triggering Article 50, voted to retain our Single Market and Customs Union membership, backed proposals to revoke Article 50 if no deal is reached before exit day and was one of the first MPs to come out in support of a public vote on the final deal. I’ve led calls to investigate the scandal that saw thousands of EU citizens denied their vote in the European Elections.
