My Priorities and Vision


Working in the Communiy

My approach to community activism was forged during my period as an opposition councillor. During that time I ran a number of successful campaigns , including the “Save our Suburbs” campaign in 2015 against aggressive development proposals in Labour’s Local Plan, soliciting a 2500+ signature petition and chairing a public meeting for 500+ residents. I also led a Stop Street Drinking campaign which delivered, amongst other things, a Public Space Protection Order covering four wards.

Britain, Europe and the World

My vision for Britain is that of a confident, progressive and outward looking country. Delivering on Brexit doesn't only mean respecting the result of the referendum, it means creating a new relationship with the EU, Europe and the World. It means creating new partnerships from old relationships within Europe, and harnessing the opportunities that the return of sovereignty and control to Britain will provide. And it means trusting the creativity and ingenuity of the British people to seize those opportunities, overcome the challenges, and deliver a successful, truly global, Britain.
