Sadiq Khan, Shadow Secretary of State for Justice and Minister for London, told the audience that Emily Brothers’ campaign is breaking new ground and making a significant impact in Sutton and Cheam. Talking about the NHS, Mr Khan said that Labour would repeal the competition framework introduced by the Coalition Government, with Paul Burstow as the Lib Dem architect. Mr Khan said that St Helier provides a comprehensive set of services which local people truly value.

Receiving a rapturous reception, Emily Brothers, the packed Boom Boom Club said that:
“The ‘Stand Up for Emily’ event isn’t about me, but more importantly it is about coming together to Stand Up for Sutton.
“This is the most open election in a generation. Local people have a choice between Paul – two peas in the pod - Paul Burstow and Paul Scully, the coalition Brothers in Arms or the only credible alternative, Labour’s Emily Brothers.
“In Sutton we have momentum, now we need your energy to take us to electoral success. Please be part of our campaign, to make a difference for our community.”
