Today I met with Chief Inspector Neil Billany, of Edmonton Metropolitan Police to talk about the unprecedented rise of violent crime in my constituency.

 

There have been 5 stabbings of young people in Enfield over the past week. Just last week an Edmonton Green Stallholder told me he had a knife held to his throat for challenging a shoplifting customer.  In broad daylight.  In a busy market area.

 

These stabbings demonstrate the reality of what is happening in Edmonton today. With almost daily reports of stabbings and shootings in Enfield and Haringey, it is imperative that effective, comprehensive and long-term measures are put in place to deal with crime at all levels. Increasing police budgets is simply not enough. 

 

There are a lot of good people in our community and Neil Billany is determined the police do their best for them. 

 

Adopting a multi-agency approach in local and neighbouring boroughs is crucial to crime prevention. Edmonton Police are already engaging with secondary school children, and want to interact with all school children on a face-to-face basis.  Community confidence in our local police is vital.

 

I will be holding regular meetings with Neil Billany and the new Enfield & Haringey Borough Commander, Helen Millichap, and will be keeping my constituents fully informed of developments.

Winnie Madikizela-Mandela recently passed away at the age of 81. She was a strong and inspirational woman who spent her life fighting against apartheid in South Africa. She will be remembered across the world for many achievements, but I care to remember her for being a strong defiant African woman. Rest in Power Winnie, gone but not forgotten.

As Shadow Secretary of State for International Development, I officially announced my bold new policy paper ‘A World for the Many, Not the Few.’

A huge thank you to everyone, especially our Task Force, who contributed to the conversation and advised me in order to make this launch possible.

The announcement this week takes action against the rigged global economy. Simply striving to reduce poverty is not enough, so Labour set forth a second goal for the UK’s aid spending: reducing inequality. Rather than tinkering with systemic issues or reacting to tragedies, Labour will be proactive by attacking the root causes of poverty, inequality and climate change. We have committed to a feminist international development approach to tackle the patriarchal system which oppresses women and limits their rights. We have vowed, after the recent incidents, to transfer power away from the aid industry into the hands of people and communities. Labour aims to leave the world better than we found it. Substantial change comes from bold thinking and passionate action. Our commitment to social justice, not charity, will transform the world into one for the many, not the few.  

Thank you for the support, I am proud of my paper and believe this is the best step forward for the world.
