Working Hard for Brent North

My speech at Labour Conference 2016

Watch my speech at Labour Conference 2016.

I'm proud to have been a Union Member for 38 years

I'm proud to have been a member of the Labour Party for 36 years

I'm proud to have been the Member of Parliament for Brent North for 19 years

And I'm proudest of all to serve as the Shadow Secretry of State for International Trade, Europe, Energy & Climate Change in the Shadow Cabinet of Jeremy Corbyn for whom I was proud to vote in this election.

This is the speech I gave today at Labour Conference.

Becoming a new member of the Labour Party was inspired by Jeremy Corbyn becoming it’s new leader. Previously as a committed anarchist, I have not voted for the formation of any government in over forty years of elections. Your recent RT interview alerted me to your very balanced and investigated world view. Now hearing you deliver such sensible local policy is inspiring. I wish you and Jeremy all the very best with your struggle to victory in the next elections. Although it is people like you that prove to me, anarchy could be viable someday. Until that time, I’ll be voting for a Labour Government and I hope to see you play a major role in its future.
