YOU might have noticed I haven’t been around as much recently – and for that I apologise, but I hope you’ll understand why.
I love this borough and am so proud to have represented you in Parliament for more than three decades.
There are still those who use their idea of Islington to try to undermine me and the Labour Party.
But they don’t know Islington like we do. We know its charms, we know where to get the best deals at the Nag’s Head. We also know that life is still very tough for many families here, as it is across Britain.
That’s why I’m travelling the length and breadth of the country campaigning for a Labour government that will stand up for the many, not the few.
It’s also why I’m asking for your vote on June 8, so I can carry on doing the job I have loved for the last 34 years, being your local MP.
