About me


It has been a privilege to serve as the MP for Selly Oak since 1992. Three years ago, I announced I would not be standing again.  So, for the first time in many years, I will not be able to vote for myself as the Parliamentary Candidate.  If I were standing, I would be signing up to the Equality Pledge and if you share my political views, you might like to ask  your parliamentary candidates for their views on the Pledge.   I  also recommend the book The Spirit Level, which explains how more equal societies do better on all measures of well-being.

For a taster, you could read the following Guardian article.

CADBURY.gif (4176 bytes)   When the news broke on 19 January that the Board of Cadbury had unanimously recommended that shareholders accept Kraft's revised takeover bid, I immediately
applied to the Speaker for an Urgent Question to be taken in the House of Commonsthat afternoon. This was turned down but I was subsequently granted a half hour adjournment debate on Tuesday 26 January at the end of the day's business in the Main Chamber.  Click here to read the debate.  For more on my reaction to the Board's recommendation, click here. On 19 January, I also wrote the following article for the Guardian.
