Statement to voters

‘Kensington is a microcosm of everything that is wrong in the country after seven years of incompetent government.

Full statement

In 2014 I proved that RBKC is ‘the most unequal borough in Britain’. It sickens me that in a very wealthy constituency we have Food Banks, worsening health and life expectancy, and the return of Victorian illnesses such as TB and even rickets. I see money squandered while residents struggle financially. The police chase super-cars in one area, and knife-wielding gangs in another.

‘I am Kensington through and through and would never stand in another constituency. As your representative in parliament I will speak out for all the communities of Kensington and work for a more equal society. My maxim is #OneKensington, and my personal knowledge of Kensington and its communities, together with my expertise in architecture and planning, will enable me to serve my constituency.

‘We are facing very difficult times with the Brexit negotiations, and like many I am torn between respecting democracy and dreading the outcome for all of us. In a constituency that voted 68% Remain, our MP voted to Leave the EU. This is a situation that I simply don’t understand.

‘I will never forget, I work for you.’
