Family is important to me.
From the love and care my mum showed towards my twin brother and I - to the love I have for my wife and children. I am driven to stand up for working and middle class families.
Growing up in the suburbs,
I watched as my mum made sacrifices.
She saved to put my twin brother and I through school and herself through university.
She made sacrifices to pay for the things that are important.
Things like health, education, and a good job.
That’s why I have spent my adult life standing up for working people, and I always will.

My wife Chloe and I have three wonderful kids: Georgette, Rupert and Clementine. I love being a dad and I love spending time with my family, especially on Saturdays when I become a bus driver shuttling them all from a sport lesson here to a
ballet lesson there.
Chloe, the kids, and I - also love our two pet British Bulldogs and honorary family members Theodore and Matilda.
My wife and I want the best for our kids and everyone else’s too.
