Our Plan For Rochdale

We need affordable housing close to public transport and amenities - we do not need large executive houses built on greenbelt land.

We need to encourage small retailers into the town centre - and deliver a credible plan for the towns market.

We will use the increase in your council tax to put 32 extra bobbies on the beat.

We will reintroduce free bulky waste collections to tackle fly tipping at source.

We will protect publicly funded local bus services - particularly in rural areas - and work with GMPTE to get additional trams and trains at peak times.

We will prioritise funding for youth services so that every young person in Rochdale can truly achieve their potential.

    The likes of Boris Johnson and Nigel Farage like to talk about an 'Australian-style' immigration system because it sounds tough.

    But as with most things Johnson says, it's actually completely meaningless.

    The UK had a points-based system, but it didn't work and was effectively scrapped 8 years ago.

    The idea that bringing it back would restore public confidence is nonsense.

    Now, instead of a plan to fix our immigration system, Johnson is commissioning yet another pointless review.

    I have been hugely touched by the many messages I have received since the result of the Leadership election was declared on Monday afternoon.

    Thank you to everyone that supported me, and thank you so much to my incredible campaign team.

    I am incredibly proud of our campaign we fought - and know we made a huge difference to the party.

    In Uxbridge and South Ruislip Boris Johnson is big on words, little on action, and completely lost when it comes to listening. When I talk with constituents, three key issues come up time and again: Brexit, Heathrow, and Police presence in the constituency.

    On Heathrow, his words were just sound and bluster, leading to disappointment for local residents

    Boris Johnson holds no mandate from the public or Parliament.

    His steadfast refusal to rule out proroguing Parliament in order to crash the UK out of the EU demonstrates that he is willing to jeopardise our NHS, jobs, and the economy.

    He is not fit to lead this country.

    That is why I have tabled this motion of no confidence in Boris Johnson with my Liberal Democrat colleagues.

    As I watched Boris Johnson being crowned Tory leader yesterday, I felt the same sinking feeling that I did on the morning of that awful referendum result.

    But that despair quickly turned to anger as he rambled through his opening speech.

    As our new Leader Jo Swinson said the other night - Britain deserves better than Boris Johnson. Britain deserves better than a divisive and damaging no-deal Brexit rammed through by a man who couldn't even be bothered to write an acceptance speech.
