  • previously a Teacher
  • Campaigner for climate emergency
  • Campaigner to stop the money wasted and chaos caused by Brexit

I care about passing the planet on to future generations and preserving for them the opportunities provided by our membership of the European Union.

There is no planet B. Stopping Brexit means we can put energy back into what matters, the environment, tackling inequality, providing health and social care that works for everyone, and creating job opportunities.

I'm standing because our western liberal democracy is under threat by extremism. MPs are the law makers. Parliament needs to be able to do its job, scrutinise the Government, and represent the needs of all. Working as part of a strong Liberal Democrat team, we will ensure our Parliamentary system is fit for the 21st Century.

If you want a better future, vote for it, vote LibDem

Finger on the pulse: national party updates

    Liberal Democrats have long demanded fundamental reforms to the distribution of power: proportional voting, decentralisation, an elected second chamber.

    Sadly, electoral reform has been lacking entirely from the Labour party's leadership contest. That's why, this week, I've written to the three remaining Labour leadership candidates, urging them to ditch our broken voting system in favour of proportional representation.

    The Liberal Democrats are working hard to tackle the big issues that people are facing across the UK.

    ✔︎ Ensuring a properly resourced NHS, to provide the highest quality care for our loved ones

    ✔︎ Fighting to reverse police cuts, to protect our communities from violent crime

    ✔︎ Protecting our environment. We've already done more to fight the climate emergency than any other party

    The first time you go canvassing can feel daunting. For many people, going up to a stranger's door, knocking, and starting a conversation isn't something they do every day. They don't often ask people about how they want things to change, in their neighbourhood or across the country as a whole.

    More than 1 in 4 of us will experience depression, anxiety or stress this year. Almost every family will be affected.

    Today, Ed Davey and I have written to the Prime Minister, calling for him to reverse plans to scrap the BBC licence fee.

    The British Press is by no means without criticism, but at its best, the BBC remains a beacon of independent journalism as well as high-quality entertainment. That's why Liberal Democrats will fight tooth and nail to save it. Read our letter in full below:
