Personal Statement

Chingford & Woodford Green is my home. I grew up here, I was born at Whipps Cross, attended Chingford CofE and Chingford Foundation schools, worked in Greggs on Chingford Mount, then managed to win a place at the University of Oxford.

I went on to gain a PhD and jobs at major policy and charitable organisations, as well as run a small company. I want to use all my skills, knowledge, and experience to fight for my home, neighbours and friends in parliament.

In 2019 I came within 1,262 votes of winning here. I was disappointed – for myself and for this community. But I am honoured to have been reselected as your Labour candidate and will fight again to be your MP at the next general election.

14 years of Tory government has left this country in tatters. The NHS, schools, police - and every other part of our public services - have been systematically underfunded.

People are working hard and finding themselves still struggling. Our economy is not working for people or the planet. After twenty years of working on inequality I can tell you - we must and can do much better.

Local people deserve better than five more years of the Tories. Join our campaign for a brighter future.
