Chinese for Labour is pleased to have two candidates standing for election at the General Election on June, 8th. 

Rebecca Blake (above left) is the Labour Party Parliamentary Candidate for Redditch. Rebecca was born and brought up in Redditch and is a former Greenlands ward councillor.

"I'm proud to have been re-selected again to fight for my home seat of Redditch. I've lived here my whole life and I know the Redditch constituency is still getting a raw deal under this Conservative government and it must not go on. We have seen enough devastation regarding cuts at The Alex, our local hospital. Schools in the area have suffered wholesale disruption and a lack of support. Redditch is over looked time and time again and it needs a strong voice.

Whether it's saving the NHS, investing in education, tackling poverty and inequality, we need a Labour government.

If enough people vote Labour on the 8th June we stand a fighting chance of not only improving the future of this town, but the lives of the people who live here.”

Vincent Lo (above right) is the Labour Party Parliamentary Candidate for Uxbridge and South Ruislip. A Londoner born and bred, Vincent is the current Chair of Brent North Constituency Labour Party (CLP). He is a Co-op, Unite the Union member and passionate about creating a fairer society with opportunities for the many. Vincent believes in equal rights and equal opportunities.

“I want to expose the failings of this Conservative government. The cruel cuts they have imposed on our children’s schools, in our hospitals, to our councils and their mishandling of the economy.”

Ensuring a sensible Brexit to protect our jobs, businesses, tourism and catering industries is vital to our economy. We have to ensure our universities remain open to all students to attract the best talent”.

Sonny Leong CBE, Chair of Chinese for Labour - “Rebecca and Vincent will both be excellent MPs bringing with them experience in local government and business. The Chinese community will have a voice in Parliament that has been denied them for a long time.

This is a challenging election and we are fighting to win. We have policies that appeal across the country and we have to take our message to them. We need to expose seven years of broken promises by this Conservative government.

This election gives us the opportunity to campaign for an alternative vision for Britain – one that is welcoming to the world; one that cares for the weak, unfortunate and poor; one that will challenge the establishment in cosying up to tax dodgers.”
