Wes Streeting re-elected in Ilford North

That was the warning given by London Mayor Sadiq Khan on his final visit to Ilford North before Thursday's general election. You can read more via the link to the Recorder below.

 Speaking to the Ilford Recorder, the Mayor of London said: 

“On the ballot paper this Thursday is the future of King George A&E, it’s as simple as that.

“The Tories are serial promise breakers and they have shown that they don’t believe in the NHS by their actions over the last seven years.

 “Frankly speaking, if you use King George Hospital and if you care about the A&E, the maternity department and the NHS in general then to me it’s a no brainer.”

It has become clear during this election that the Conservatives would rather mislead people about the future of our A&E, rather than fight to save it.

The facts are simple. The closure decision was taken by the Government in 2011, while Lee Scott was our MP. The maternity unit was closed and the only reason our A&E is still there is because both of our local NHS trusts have been in special measures.

There is no room for complacency. Independent NHS officials confirm that the closure decision still stands. That's why I've been leading the fight to stop it happening.

This is just one of many reasons why I hope you'll re-elect me as your local MP this Thursday. This race will be close and every vote will count.

I greatly admire David Miliband for the international leadership he has shown on some of the biggest challenges facing our world, so I'm proud to have his support in this video message to Ilford North residents ahead of June 8th.

This is a time of unprecedented peace and global prosperity, yet also great anxiety and social upheaval.

The benefits of globalisation and economic growth are being unevenly distributed. There is a growing risk of inequality within and between nations. Our natural resources are under pressure. Climate change poses the single biggest threat to humanity. We saw only last week the danger that domestic terrorism poses to our way of life, with roots in a global ideological movement that has twisted and abused the teachings of one of the world's great religions for its own evil ends.

Because of my upbringing, I've grown up with an almost unshakeable belief in the onward march of social progress. I was born in a multi-cultural community in a global city. Thanks to a good education I was the kid from a Stepney council estate who got to Cambridge and later to Parliament. I’ve seen great advances in areas like race relations, disability rights, LGBT equality and the role of women in our society.

Martin Luther King famously said “the arc of the moral universe is long but it bends towards justice” and I have always believed that to be true. But the last couple of years have shaken that conviction and I worry for the future of our country and our world. I have come to the realisation that Dr King's vision will only be realised if we work hard for it.

During my short time in Parliament, I've been a strong voice for human rights and democracy around the world, for action to tackle climate change and for a stronger humanitarian response to the biggest refugee crisis the world has ever seen.

I've voted in favour of measures to keep our country safe, from renewing our nuclear deterrent to giving our security services the powers they need to tackle the rapidly changing risks posed by organised crime and global terrorism.

If re-elected to Parliament on June 8th, I will continue to provide a strong internationalist voice for Ilford North as our country charts its course through this turbulent and uncertain century.
