I was delighted to join 50 Members of Parliament from seven political parties to establish a groundbreaking network for cross-party campaigning in Westminster.
The More United MP Network is the latest addition to a fast-changing landscape in the House of Commons and its members have committed to working cross-party in the national interest, no matter who is in power.
The network will tackle ‘issues ignored because of Brexit’ by the emerging cross-party movement of over 150,000 members who share a desire to move Britain forward. Initial campaigns will focus on poverty and homelessness, responsible technology, mental health and urgent climate dangers.
I came into Parliament to get things done for my constituents and sometimes the best way to do that is to work cross-party. Having a permanent network of MPs willing to do that will hopefully lead to better outcomes for people in Edinburgh South and rebuild trust in Parliament.
