Fighting for Bristol West - my statement on the General Election

Election night 2015

As your MP, I have always stood up for what is best for Bristol West. And I always will.

Theresa May says she wants to make this election about Brexit: bring it on! My constituents voted overwhelmingly to remain in the EU, and I represented them in Parliament by voting against Article 50. My constituents don’t want this clueless government to inflict damage on our environment, our jobs, and our rights through the ‘Hard Brexit’ this government wants. As the MP I’m campaigning against this and for the best possible deal for Bristol. This election is the chance for people in Bristol West to tell the Tories loudly and clearly that they don’t want our country to career recklessly towards a hard Brexit.

Labour offers people an alternative government, built on fairness for everyone. We need a government which can rebuild our economy, tackle climate change, protect our vital services, and lead the country confidently into the challenges of the 21st century. Bristol West needs an MP who knows how to represent their interests in Parliament – I am that MP now and I hope to be after 8 June.

I will be doing everything I can in this campaign to help Jeremy Corbyn and the whole Labour team to make the case for a Labour government.
