I am a candidate for Federal Policy Committee. It's the first time I stand for any federal committee and I am only standing for FPC. I also don't hold any party office so if elected to FPC that would be my priority (after on the ground campaigning to make sure MPs and councillors are re-elected). 

I think I bring a fairly unique combination to FPC including: 

  • high level experience of policy making (as an MEP), in particular in health, environment & youth policy
  • international outlook & understanding of where national & EU policies intersect
  • political/campaigning experience gained mostly in Yorkshire so good understanding of how thing play outside Westminster
  • ability to deal constructively with differences of opinion and find consensus

I want FPC to:

  • be bold, practical and progressive
  • come up with serious policies for real democratic devolution across the UK
  • think more about young people and diverse communities in policy making
  • have a green thread running through its policies
