Julie Elliott MP

Standing up for Sunderland Central

Campaigning with Chuka Umunna MP in Barnes

Today, Julie was out knocking on doors in Barnes ward with Chuka Umunna MP, Shadow Minister for Business Innovation and Skills and Cllr Michael Essl, who is standing for re-election in Barnes ward on 22nd May.  They were also joined by almost a dozen other volunteers including all three of Labour's European election candidates.


After speaking with one resident who was struggling to make ends meet, Julie said:

"The Tory-led Government claim that they have fixed the economy, the truth is that wages are down £1,600 a year since the election in 2010.

"By voting Labour on 22nd May, the people of Sunderland can send a message to this out of touch Government that they need to put hard-working families first, not the privileged few."
