This week Parliament forced the publication of the Yellowhammer documents, which showed the Government’s expectations for a No Deal Brexit. It proved that ‘Project Fear’ is, in fact, ‘Project Reality’. 

I also announced this week that I’m running to be Speaker of the House of Commons. My first priority is, and always will be, to stand-up and fight for the interests of Hackney South and Shoreditch. But I also want to stand-up for the staff in Parliament, stand-up for the right of a strong Parliament to hold the Government to account, and stand-up the kind of politics I believe in: honest, straight-forward, and fair.
