Tragedy in London

I am shocked and upset at yesterday’s violence in London and our hearts go out to all those who have been affected, and their families.

Both parties have suspended national campaigning today but the Labour Party are determined that those who wish to bring terror to our streets should not succeed in undermining our democracy and have therefore asked us to continue with our local campaigning on this important final weekend before the election.

The Labour Party’s campaigning is done by volunteers who give up their valuable weekends because they share our vision of a Britain that is fairer and where everyone can prosper, not just the few. Although we all feel great sadness, we must not let last night’s terrible events prevent us from looking forward with hope.
