Defence and Tackling Terrorism

In these challenging times it is even more important that we have a Government and a Prime Minister who is committed to keeping us safe.  If elected as your MP I will work to ensure that our marvellous military and emergency services have all the need to protect us. 

Immigration

I believe that immigration has been good for our economy, good for our culture and good for business.  Lewisham East is a wonderful and vibrant community that displays all the best things about being a welcoming and tolerate society.  Our diversity and energy all benefit from a sensible immigrati
