I was a guest on the Progressive Britain podcast, where I joined Alison McGovern MP to discuss the serious issue of wealth inequality.

I gave a speech in the Budget debate on 22nd November, where I warned the Chancellor had completely failed to address the biggest challenges facing people living in Leicester West. The Government only has itself to blame for the disastrous economic outlook, and its damaging approach to Brexit looks set to make life much harder for my constituents.

On Monday 6th November I was the Guest of the Day on BBC’s Daily Politics, where I discussed the Paradise Papers, the EU Withdrawal Bill and Sexual Harassment in Westminster. I repeated my calls for every political party to have an independent reporting system so that victims of abuse have the confidence to come forward.
