Andrew's story

Graffiti and Rubbish everywhere and the smell of the stairwells is my overwhelming memory of the council estate I grew up on in Camden town.

My dad arrived here fleeing from a war torn Cyprus with almost nothing, he worked almost every day of his life until he was 65, first as a waiter, then as a postman.


What people may not know about me is that for years I was in a children’s home because my dad couldn’t look after my sister and me.

I was very lucky. I had great social workers and the lady who ran my children’s home I loved like a mother, she taught me respect and she got me to work hard.

That’s what got me to university and to jobs that I never would have dreamed of as a boy. Ever since I’ve wanted to make things better for people with backgrounds like mine.

I’ve always believed that what the wise parent would wish for their children so the state should provide for all children.

Its my mission in life.

Its why I’m standing in Vauxhall. Its why I’m standing for Labour.

Vauxhall is a pro-remain, pro-equality, pro-public services community. It's time it had an MP with the energy to end austerity and stop Brexit.

As the most Remain constituency in the UK, Vauxhall deserves to have the most Remain Labour MP.
