Interview on Cambridge 105, day after general election 2017

    I was invited to give an interview with Cambridge 105 on the afternoon of 9th June, the day after the general election. I’ve had about an hour of sleep by this point so please excuse any lack of concentration!

Hustings season ends

The hustings have ended. As always I really enjoy meeting people and having conversations. It’s such an honour to know that as candidates we are standing up for free speech when our country is being attacked by those who fear it. If you were not able to attend any of the hustings then please feel […]

Talk not terror

We’ve all seen the barbaric events unfolding in London last night.  I’m appalled and disgusted by these criminals and their actions.

Only Labour can stop the Tories fracking our countryside…

I think our countryside is beautiful in South Cambridgeshire. I want to make sure it is kept safe for future generations.  You only have to see how the Tories have ridden over the democratic decisions of the people of Lancashire to find out what would happen if Shale Gas was discovered in South Cambs! Please […]

We have a defence gap we need to discuss and fast!

In 2015 my fellow candidates and I were asked at a few hustings about the renewal of Trident, and the ways the UK should defend itself. I know that our armed forces do an amazing job, and that they are vital to our nation’s security. However, I find that there is a gap in the […]

From South Cambs Labour – One month until the election

It’s one month until the General Election. Our candidate Dan and the team have been busy over the weekend getting the campaign off the ground and his diary is filling up as he makes plans to get out and about to get the message across that Labour are the real alternative to the Tories for […]
