Following the defection of Mark Reckless to UKIP and his decision to stand down and stand for UKIP in the by-election on 20th November. I joined Labour’s candidate Naushabah Khan alongside Labour Councillors, members and supporters to campaign in the constituency.

Today I challenged Nick Clegg on the fact that whilst the Government has been saying they have fixed the economy, everyday working families are now on average £1,600 a year worse off than in 2010, and in this time millionaires have had a tax cut.

Suzy Stride is Labour’s Parliamentary Candidate in Harlow for the next General Election. I attended her fundraising dinner this evening in London. Over 120 people attended the dinner including, Councillors, council candidates, members of the Labour Party, youth and community workers and Trade Union members. I spoke about the fact that whilst working people are being told by the government that the economy is recovering, people are not feeling the benefit. It is only the Labour Party who has a plan which it would put in place to deal with the cost of living crisis. I also spoke the benefit having Suzy in Parliament would make to Parliament, the Labour Party but most importantly for the people of Harlow.
