I was elected Member of Parliament for Croydon North in November 2012, after leading Lambeth Council since May 2006. This blog lets you know how I’m working to improve life for people in Croydon North as well as touching on some wider issues.
I live in Streatham with my partner and our two cats. I love cooking (and eating), I try and ride my bike as often as possible, and I’m happiest spending a sunny weekend out in the countryside with friends – and a tent if it’ s not raining too hard. I believe politics is worth getting involved in because you can use it to make positive change happen.
