I am grateful to the constituents of Poplar & Limehouse for putting their faith in me to represent them as their Member of Parliament.
I do not underestimate the privilege they have bestowed on me, and intend to return the faith they have placed in me, by working to serve them and fight for their needs relentlessly.
I am grateful to my agent, campaign team, supporters and members who have worked tirelessly to help get me elected. So many knocked on doors, volunteered and campaigned in the last few weeks in the cold.
This election was about Brexit but I am still proud of our manifesto which placed ending austerity at it’s core and presented exactly what people across this country so desperately need, from job security to keeping our NHS public. I will continue to fight for this in Westminster in opposition.
Together we will not just resist but we will overcome.
I am standing for the Parliamentary Selection in Poplar and Limehouse the constituency where I have lived all of my life. I’m standing because I believe in the people of this great constituency, in the Labour Party, and above all in the leadership of Jeremy Corbyn. Here's my video!

A new kind of politics for Poplar & Limehouse
Why you should support me
A local candidate
I was born and raised in Shadwell and have both studied and worked in Poplar and Limehouse. I am familiar with the deep inequalities and deprivation experienced here.
I am a socialist, politicised by my own lived experiences and I am proud of our history of standing up for our rights.
I have been actively involved in local campaigns to protect public services such as our local day care nurseries. Tackling inequalities and standing up for marginalised communities has always been key to me.
A proud socialist
Why I am standing
I am standing to be MP for Poplar and Limehouse, the constituency where I have lived all of my life. I’m standing because I believe in the people of this great constituency, in the Labour Party, and above all in the leadership of Jeremy Corbyn.
