    February 22, 2018

  • European Free Trade Association

    February 08, 2018

    A debate was held in Westminster Hall on the European Free Trade Association (EFTA). In the debate I called for an EEA EFTA Brexit, a deal that can reunite the country and give a voice to the silent majority with a Brexit that lets us take back control and protects jobs, opportunity and prosperity.

  • Why I’m Fasting Today To Help End First-Past-The-Post

    February 06, 2018

That is because we know, inspired by the suffragettes and their struggle for real democracy, that that fight isn’t yet over!

  • Aberavon WASPI Visit

    February 05, 2018

    I was delighted to attend an Aberavon WASPI meeting in Baglan on the weekend. The group has really taken shape since the initial meeting that I organised back in October. We discussed the Private Members Bill currently going through Parliament which seeks justice for women born in the 1950s who have been unfairly hit by changes to the state pension age without due notification. I will keep on fighting for the WASPI and all women until we can secure justice and equality.
