“I have decided to leave the Conservative Party and join the Labour Party because Labour will deliver economic stability, cut NHS waiting times and cut our energy bills by setting up Great British Energy. I believe Labour will make our country stronger, and the next Labour Government and our local MP Candidate David Taylor will do their best for our Country and Hemel Hempstead. Hemel needs change and I want to work together to make that happen.”

David Taylor, Labour’s candidate to be MP for Hemel Hempstead, said:

“I very much welcome Goverdhan’s support and his confidence in Labour’s ability to make real change happen for Hemel. He’s not alone, every day I meet former Tory voters who are switching to Labour because they want the chaos to stop and understand that economic stability will be the key to rebuilding our public services and the country”.
