I’m not currently an MP as Parliament has been dissolved until after the General Election on Thursday 12 December. It has been a privilege to represent this wonderful constituency and I am standing for re-election as your Labour MP for Hornsey and Wood Green.
Nine years of crippling Tory & Lib Dem austerity 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.
In Parliament, I’ve stood up for our community and fought against Brexit. 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.
