My endorsers

These are the people who are supporting me – and I’d love to add your name to the list:

I know she will work tirelessly for the people of Hampstead and Kilburn, and its many communities.”

Glenda Jackson
Labour MP for Hampstead and Kilburn since 1992

 


Helen Brown endorsement“As a former senior nurse, I know how essential the National Health Service is to our community. Labour have the right ideas in integrating health and social care and taking early intervention and mental health seriously. Tulip’s work with Camden and Islington NHS Foundation Trust has also given her a unique insight. I trust her understand the reality of front-line healthcare and be part of critical decisions about the future of the NHS. Tulip will make a wonderful MP for Hampstead and Kilburn.”

Helen Brown
NHS Health Visitor, Brondesbury Park resident

 


Father Cain endorsement“It’s been a pleasure working with Tulip.

I’ve seen first-hand her commitment to the communities here and her ability to work with people of every faith background, race and political persuasion.

She cares about local issues – because as a member of the local community what is important to us is also important to her.”

Father Andrew Cain
Vicar, St Mary’s in Kilburn and St James’ in West Hampstead

 

 

 


Patrick Wall endorsement“15 years ago, I founded a software company that now employs 200 people across the UK.

It’s this experience that leads me to support Labour’s policies to tackle income inequality and push for higher wages.

It’s not just the right thing to do, it’s also what our economy needs.

Increasing the security of those on lower incomes is the best way to boost demand and encourage business investment.”

Patrick Wall
Business founder, Brondesbury Park resident

 

 


Tina Amadi Endorsement“London isn’t always an easy place to raise a child.

As a single mum holding down a full-time job and running my own business it can feel like everyone is against you.

When I met Tulip, it felt like finally someone understood and actually had some ideas on what would make life easier, like on childcare, which would help me work more and continue developing my skills.”

Tina Amadi
West Hampstead

 


Parvez Ahmed endorsement“Over the past decade, Tulip has become a major champion of local communities, whether they are residents associations, religious groups or business forums. She knows that business and communities are one and the same and recognises the difficulties we face, whether it is access to finance or changes to regulations.”

Parvez Ahmed
Local business owner, Kilburn

 

 

 

 


Hannah Riley endorsement“This will be my first General Election and I wasn’t sure who to choose until I met Tulip when she visited my street.

Tulip listened to me and understood my concerns. She’s focused on the country’s long-term future, not short-term policies like high tuition fees. Labour’s policies show that they’re listening at the top too. This is the kind of Government I want representing me.”

Hannah Riley
Student, Frognal and Fitzjohns


Myra and Derek endorsement“With cross-party support for a triple-lock on state pensions, it’s not ourselves we’re worried about.

We are worried about the future and younger people, like our grandchildren, who might look to settle in London.

Rents just keep going up and there are so many bad landlords out there. Affordable housing is scarce.

Tulip understands that it will take serious policy changes to fix this. We trust her to make sure Labour delivers on its promises on homes and protection for renters.”

Myra and Derek Farnworth
Frognal and Fitzjohns residents


Neil Kinnock endorsement for Tulip Siddiq“I’ve known Tulip Siddiq for several years as a brave and determined campaigner for Labour’s democratic socialist values and a very hard working elected representative of our Party.

Tulip embodies everything that is best about young Labour people – she is energetic, conscientious, highly intelligent, approachable and determined to combat prejudice and injustice anywhere and everywhere.

Her sense of judgement is firm and mature and her commitment to public service is total.

She would make an outstanding Labour MP for Hampstead and Kilburn and I’m certain that she deserves support from across the whole Constituency Labour Party.”

Lord Kinnock

“I have campaigned and worked with Tulip Siddiq since 2009; she became a valued member of Camden’s Labour cabinet in May 2010 when I was deputy leader. From the outset Tulip displayed a savvy political antennae with a firm grasp of local issues and concerns.

Tulip works collaboratively with other members of the cabinet and always keeps back benchers well informed. This has been evident in her steadfast steering of her Culture portfolio with a £22m budget. Tulip has worked hard to ensure positive press coverage for Labour throughout her tenure in office. I believe she would be inspiring, industrious and a valuable asset for our party in Parliament.”

Awale Olad - Tulip Siddiq endorsement“Tulip will be a great, hard working, and dedicated MP.

She understands the difficulties ordinary people face on a daily basis and her greatest asset is that she listens, goes away, and gets things done.

She has my support and I hope members in Hampstead and Kilburn will give her their backing.”

Awale Olad
Councillor for Holborn and Covent Garden


“Tulip is a very valued colleague in Camden’s Cabinet. She took on what in 2006 could only be described as the ‘poisoned chalice’ of a monumentally difficult portfolio, involving many cherished Camden libraries, sports and community centres, all with rabid defenders like me to fight to the last! And all this with the background context of savage Government cuts. Tulip has steered us through to calmer waters in Camden, with good humour, thoughtfulness and sheer hard work. She will make a great MP for Hampstead and Kilburn.”

As the only candidate who lives and grew up in the constituency, she genuinely understands the needs of the community and is passionate about the values she stands for. This, combined with her national policy experience, makes her the ideal candidate to represent my area in Parliament.”
