I wanted to say thank you for all of your hard work over the course of the election. Having you out alongside me every day, not only kept me going and inspired us to work harder but it directly contributed towards the great results we saw across Southampton. 

We had an excellent manifesto with very popular policies and a leader in Jeremy Corbyn who inspired new voters however it was you who took our messages out to the voters.

My increased majority is a testament to every one of you who knocked on a door, ran a street stall or picked up the phone for the Labour Party. In Itchen you helped Simon run Royston very close and there is no doubt if we keep up the good work we will beat him at the next General Election, whenever that may be!

All in all the last 8 weeks have been a great example of what we can achieve together and we look forward to working with you in the coming months and years to build upon our successes nationally and locally.

 

Thank You

Throughout my time as an MP one of my most important jobs was fighting for those of my constituents who weren't given a fair deal by the Tory government. 

One of the many examples of the Tories failure to stand up for my residents can be seen in the way in which the rise in pension age for women has been implemented. 

Many women, particularly those born in the 50s will not have been given adequate notice of the raise in the state pension age for women due to it being implemented far quicker than originally advised. Some women received no notice at all! 

This affects thousands of women in Southampton and I’ve been supporting the Solent WASPI - Women Against State Pension Inequality Campaignto get fairer transitional arrangements in place. 

If re-elected on Thursday 8th June I will continue to be a strong voice in Parliament for these women and many more like them.

From nurses having to rely on foodbanks to Junior Doctors quitting because of working condidtions it's clear that the Tories have not been treating our NHS staff fairly.

When doctors, nurses and support staff can't do their jobs to the best of their ability because they are being stretched and pushed to breaking point our NHS suffers. That's why I'm proud to support Labour's manifesto pledge to scrap the NHS pay cap and legislate to ensure safe staffing levels. 

This will ensure both patient and staff safety and provide the working conditions that our NHS workers deserve.
