Reselect Neil Coyle

I joined Labour because of my family experience, growing up with a mum with schizophrenia. Families like mine need a Labour Government and my values have shaped my work in and for the Labour Party and as your MP.

I was selected to be our candidate to take on the Lib Dems in Bermondsey and Old Southwark in 2015 as I had a track record of winning locally. I won as a council candidate in the Lib Dems’ ‘safest ward’. The Lib Dem majority in Bermondsey and Old Southwark was over 8,000 and they claimed it was their safest seat as they’d held it since 1983. I won it back in 2015 with a majority of over 4,000! It was a huge battle with over 1,000 helpers and It was the biggest highlight of that general election for Labour.

I beat the Lib Dems again in 2017 but they are threatening here once more due to Brexit. My decision to vote against triggering Article 50 and my clear revoke and Remain stance is a key asset as we approach the next election. I was sad to have to break the whip to stand by Labour values and do what’s right for our community and country but I believe I did the right thing.

I’ve worked hard in Southwark and my open door and mobile surgery advice sessions have helped thousands of people face to face. I’ve also kept my promise that I would never support anything that will harm our local community and will continue to do so with your support. Thank

Neil was a great help resolving my family problems when we were hit by the Home Office’s hostile environment policy and even made homeless. Neil worked hard to get us rehoused and money coming in again too, he goes above and beyond!

“Neil helped me get my benefits reinstated after my Universal Credit was cut. He’s also worked hard to clamp down on noisy neighbours in my block and has helped tackle homelessness. I know he’ll always fight my corner.”

“The Home Office had ruined my life and I was reliant on foodbanks for me and my son when Neil stepped in to help. After years of delays and being blocked, Neil helped get me back my right to work in the UK and I’m really proud to have a job again and can support my family – I can’t thank Neil enough!”
