Ivana 02-12-15Dear friends,

Thank you to all you support over the last few months and on polling day. I am proud of the incredible campaign: we managed to slash the Tory majority in Havering and Redbridge to 0.8% and win two by-elections in Heaton and Roding. Congratulations to new councillors Dennis O’Flynn and Lloyd Duddridge!

We must celebrate our victory across London! Now more than ever, I am so proud to have made London my home years ago, and Londoners have demonstrated what they are made of. It has been a great privilege to stand for Labour at this election: I enjoyed every single moment of the campaign, and I want to thank all members and volunteers for the warm welcome to little Miranda, too.

And now… onto the European Referendum. We must fight to keep London in Europe!

I am enjoying speaking at events and meetings and making the case for Britain in Europe.

Next Saturday 21 May, I will be speaking at the Fabian Society Summer Conference. Can you come along? It’ll be a fantastic event, with Gordon Brown as keynote speaker.

Please do get in touch if you would like me to join you!
