My 5 Pledges to Labour Members
ON YOUR SIDE - A PROVEN WINNER
I am the only candidate for this selection who is a two-time winner against the Tories. In 2014, I fought hard to become the first Labour Councillor in Maida Vale since 1986 – and I kept working after that. Labour won all three seats in 2018 thanks to the proof that we would work for them. I’ve learned how to get through to people who have never voted Labour, as well as our existing supporters. I listen, and I am on your side.
BUILD HOMES AND PROTECT RENTERS
I will campaign for more good quality council homes and to protect estate residents from councils and developers trying to short-change them. I'll work alongside the Mayor's campaign to create a universal landlord register and rent controls to crack down on rogue landlords.
TACKLE KNIFE CRIME/ INVEST IN YOUNG PEOPLE
The Tories have made cuts of 91% to youth services in the City of Westminster. I will continue to campaign to reverse these cuts. We need better housing, jobs, and youth services to truly tackle crime, as well as more police and community police.
FIGHT TO KEEP LONDON GLOBAL
London is a global city, and should be open to all.
We must fight against racism, anti-semitism, Islamophobia, homophobia, and any kind of hate crime.
I will stand with the Mayor of London to fight for fairness for all, regardless of race, gender, background, disability. I will fight for you.
A GREEN NEW DEAL FOR LONDON
I will invite distinguished Left Economist, Ann Pettifor (and other experts), to advise the Mayor and the London Assembly on London’s Green New Deal - from the small ideas that make residents' lives better, to a city-wide Plan For London.
