It’s time to take the fight to the Tories!
It has been a whirlwind of an election campaign and I’m extremely privileged to be back in Parliament!
This election was quite clearly a rejection of cruel Tory policies and sent a message that they are not welcome in the North.
I have waited my whole political life to stand on the 2017 Labour Manfiesto and it humbles me that so many people agree that we need a Britain that works for the many, not the few.
Labour won seats we didn’t expect to win, Stockton South, Canterbury and Kensington to name but a few. However the fight continues as the Conservatives are attempting to force through a Queen’s speech with the help of the DUP.
This simply cannot work, and if there is another General election soon, then we must be prepared.
I am ready to hit the ground running and hold this Tory Government to account on behalf of all of the good people of Easington. Bring it on…
