About me


Throughout my political career, I have always stood up for a country that delivers for the many not the few. In this election, Labour is leading a movement to create an economy worthy of the 21st Century, and build a Britain that we can all be proud of.

The Conservatives’ choices in government show that they are the party of privilege and the richest. I’m proud that the Labour Party, founded for and by working people, continues to stand up for working people. When Labour wins elections, it is the people and not the powerful who win. The nurse, the teacher, the small trader, the builder, the office worker, the student, the carer win. We all win.

Britain needs a Labour government that is prepared to fight for people across this country. Our Labour government won’t be scared to take on the powerful, who hoard our country’s wealth for themselves. Britain needs a government that will invest in people in every community to build a better future for every single person.

Politics is about choices. We need a Labour government that will choose the people over the powerful – no more give aways to the super-rich while the rest of us face less money in our pockets and cuts to our NHS, schools, police and all the services we rely upon.

We will put the people first by building one million homes, investing to upgrade our economy and stand firm in the Brexit negotiations to secure full and tariff-free access to European markets.

These policies represent the Labour values that I have always fought for and the values which are in our country’s proudest traditions.

Together, we can build an economy worthy of the 21st Century, and a country for the many, not the few.
