Most Read

Any directorships/ other financial interests: None.

What jobs/ interests will you continue with if elected: If elected, I’ll give up my job – but I’ll hopefully stay on as a governor of Queensmill School for children with austim. I really want to pursue policies in Parliament that help poorer children get ready for, and do well in, school.

What is your local connection to the area: I live in Archway and I used to live in Angel.

If I am elected, the first thing I will do is: Dance a jig (and try to resuscitate Jeremy Corbyn). After that’s done I want to campaign in Parliament for a raft of social policies to improve education, support local families and help more people get into work.


How would you/did you vote on the following issues:

Assisted suicide? In favour - but only for people with terminal conditions.

Gay marriage? In favour.

UK military action against Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s government? Against at the current time.

Smoking in cars? People should be allowed to smoke in cars if there are no children travelling with them.
