Poplar and Limehouse Constituency
I was born in Bethnal Green Hospital and my family are from Tower Hamlets. I worked as a civil servant for cabinet ministers and in Parliament and subsequently represented the energy industry in media, government and Parliaments. A key part of this was championing the role for gas in our energy mix. As a result I am a strong critic of Tory Net Zero policy and don’t believe we should be ripping out our gas boilers.
I’m also standing for the Greater London Assembly for the London North East constituency comprising the London Boroughs of Hackney, Islington and Waltham Forest.
I would bin all the unnecessary traffic restrictions imposed across London. With violent crime rising I believe the police should be policing our streets not social media.
I’m appalled that the sitting Poplar and Limehouse Labour MP has aligned herself with extremist causes like Hamas and has sort division in our community not unity.
The Island is a wonderful place to live but it has been badly let down by the Tory Government and the previous Labour local council and Sadiq Khan who have encouraged massive overdevelopment. This has put unbearable burdens on local infrastructure and even affected water pressure.
Meanwhile the current Tower Hamlets Mayor Lutfur Rahman talks a good game but does nothing. He has a terrible record of causing division in our community and the current Labour MP is aligned with him.
So much of what is done to the Island has not benefitted local residents. Whether it is local jobs, housing or transport. Meanwhile the sitting Labour MP plays racially divisive politics whilst failing to represent her constituents. We need change in Poplar and Limehouse. We need Reform.
