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.
