What local residents say

“I wish you all the very best, you’ve been a fabulous MP and I hope we vote sensibly and keep you in”

RS, W11, May 2017

“Please accept my thanks to you for your continued support and if possible thank the Minister on my behalf. I really hope this can culminate in change that stops others suffering in the future, and I believe I could not have achieved the progress, or had two meetings with ministers, without the invaluable help of you and your team. Best wishes for your continued success.”

TS, W11, May 2017

“My sincere thanks for all of your kind support in reversing the reduction in my PIP and Social Services care package. I am so grateful for all of your time and support and it was a great pleasure meeting you again when you came to visit at the weekend.”

MV, SW7, May 2017

“Thank you for your thoughtful and positive reply and your help with my Home Office case. I am delighted and very grateful to be represented by you. You made our dreams come true for me and my little girl!”

MW, W10, April 2017

“I am most grateful to you for your kind and supportive letter over my continuing dispute with my company and HM Government. Thank you for your ongoing work on my behalf.”

JW, SW5, April 2017

“Just to say a BIG thank you for helping me in acquiring a flat in Sheltered Housing. I did see you at the meeting last week, but didn’t get the chance to say thank you then. I shall be ensconced next week all being well, thank you once again.”

DP, SW5, March 2017

I received the letter today which confirms that my son’s second appeal has been allowed on disability grounds. This is such a relief and we are very grateful to you and your office for all your hard work, time and effort. The representations you have made have resulted in this successful outcome.

CD, W8, February 2017

“Thank you for all your help on this – that is very good news regarding Airbnb. It is good to know that they are going to submit to some checks on their triumphal progress! With luck more people will come forward and they will take further action.”

NC, W8, January 2017

“Our application for residency in the UK as EU citizens has been processed and our passports returned today together with our residency cards. Thank you so much for your help and advice and for achieving a successful result for us.”

PHF, SW7, January 2017

“This is just to thank you very much for your intervention with the DWP over the non-payment of my winter fuel allowance. It was thanks to this that the DWP made contact with me (at last) and the upshot is that the money for Winter 2015 has now been paid into my account.
I would just like to say how impressed I am with your office for expediting this happy solution to my problem. Thank you!”

JJ, W11, Kensington

This is just a quick email to thank you so much for your help. They have decided to cancel the fines on this occasion. I can’t thank you enough for this intercession – without it I would certainly not have a car today, which would make my life very difficult.

The Prime Minister outlines her Brexit approach

The Rt Hon Theresa May MP, Prime Minister
The Sunday Times
Sunday 13th May 2018

Trust me, I’ll take back control — but I’ll need your help

Amid all the noisy debate and technical discussions about our departure from the European Union, I want to take this opportunity to remind the British public of my mission in the negotiations. Brexit provides the opportunity to build a new relationship with the EU where we are close trading partners and strong allies but with the British government in control of our laws, our immigration policy and how taxpayers’ money is spent.

Windrush settlers

As an MP much of my time was spent in debates in Parliament or immersed in casework, but there was also the opportunity of dipping into the fantastic library in the House of Commons, I therefore had time to read several accounts of our Windrush arrivals, and those that preceded them – I particularly enjoyed the Trevor Phillips book where he interviewed and followed the lives of many individuals and their experiences.

Death toll on your conscience Mr Mayor?

On knife crime, you must and you CAN do more Mr Mayor.

As I write this, sixty young people have lost their lives this year. Sixty families grieving. This cannot go on.

As the previous Deputy Mayor of London, I saw at first-hand how you can tackle this problem.  When Boris was Mayor he inherited a murder rate of over 21 young people a year (2008) from Ken Livingstone.

I am absolutely devastated by this dreadful fire, as we all are. I have visited the local voluntary centres on a number of occasions in order to help as I know have many of you. The community’s response has been amazing.
