  • 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

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:

    That's the saying I live my life by, because taking action is the only way to change things in this world, and bugger me this world needs some change.

    That saying has led me to a lot of places. I joined the party, started delivering leaflets, knocked on doors, stood for council and stood for parliament because I needed to act.
