Caroline Flint

Standing up for Don Valley.

Latest news

Caroline Flint, candidate for Deputy Leader of the Labour Party, commenting on research from BBM campaigns on Listening to Labour’s Lost Voters, said:

"This research reveals the scale of the challenge facing the Labour Party. At the election we lost working-class and middle-class voters. We lost support in areas that were previously described as our heartlands and in Middle England. We lost in the South and in the North. The challenge is not just about the centre ground: it’s about the ground to the South, the North and in Scotland. It’s about carving out new Labour territory – because Labour wins only when we build coalitions with roots in every part of the country and all classes.

Dear friend

The most important decision we will take between now and next year's vital elections, and indeed between now and the General Election in 2020, is who we elect as our leadership team both here in Scotland and across the UK.

I'm writing to encourage you to support Caroline Flint to be Labour's next Deputy Leader.

Caroline Flint has branded the Chancellor’s plans to give local councils the powers to extend Sunday trading hours “complete nonsense”.

The Don Valley MP said: “The Chancellor is hoping that a minority of councils try to gain an advantage for a particular town centre, seaside resort or market town by extending the Sunday opening hours. He knows that once that starts it will create a domino effect where neighbouring councils feel pressured to make the change.

Four years ago I said that the energy market was broken and people were getting ripped off. Over the last four years the Labour party set out plans to reform the energy market and argued inside Parliament through Opposition Day debates and questions, and outside through the work of our members, that action needed to be taken.

We need a Labour government to ensure Sure Start continues to change lives.

In the 1980s, Labour councils pioneered public nurseries; later the Workplace Nurseries campaign, which I chaired, persuaded the Tory Government to stop taxing workplace nurseries; and I established Lambeth's first workplace nursery.

The Labour Party took an unmistakable drubbing in the general election. But I wasn't surprised that Caroline Flint was one of the first to pick herself up and brush herself off. She knows that being Deputy Leader would not be the easy option, but she's never been afraid of hard work nor of telling the truth when this means challenging orthodoxy.
