You may have seen in today’s news that Communities Secretary, Sajid Javid, has called in inspectors to investigate financial mismanagement at Northants County Council. Those responsive for squandering public money in this age of unprecedented austerity must be held to account. Full story: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-northamptonshire-42629794

Thank you to everyone who's been in touch to urge me to run for reselection.

So today I'm hitting the ground running, launching my campaign to continue to be your Labour Parliamentary Candidate for Northampton South.

Tory austerity is hitting the people of Northampton hard. We need a Labour MP here in Northampton South more than ever. This is no time for novices. There could be a General Election at any moment. As the candidate who campaigned with you to bring the Tory majori...ty down from 6000 to 3000 in 2015, to just 1000 in June, I have the experience to hit the ground running.

Experience. Passion. Action. I'm ready to go! Let's #WinTheSouth together!

Disappointed not to be chosen as Labour’s next parliamentary candidate for Northampton South.

Best of luck to Cllr Gareth Eales, our next candidate, in turning the town red. He inherits a campaign I’m proud to have led from a 6500 Tory majority in 2013 to just over 1000 in June last year.

Thank you to all my supporters past and present - best of luck to you all for the future.

Northampton is an ancient county town and New Town in equal measure. Immigrants from London and across England arrived from the 60s onwards, with later arrivals from Asia, Africa and then Eastern Europe making Northampton their home.

All are Northamptonians, all are local.

Kevin is the only local candidate to have campaigned for Remain and continues to fight for the UK to remain in the Single Market and Customs Union. Those others in this race who backed Leave have led us in...to this Tory Brexit chaos.

Vote for the candidate who will protect and promote our proudly diverse communities!

Really pleased to be backed for reselection by former Cabinet Minister and Mayor of Greater Manchester, Andy Burnham.

Andy also served in both Ed Miliband and Jeremy Corbyn's Shadow Cabinets and knows what it takes to beat the Tories.

At the 2017 snap General Election the Tory candidate was too scared to debate with me. You can see me advocating for a Labour government and our bold manifesto here:

Northampton South election hustings

Lots of members asking questions about policy, which is great. As well as contacting me directly, you can view this interview recorded by Northampton College!

Honoured to have the support of Labour Peer, Andrew Adonis, who is leading the fight against Tory Brexit chaos. Andrew and I also agree on rail nationalisation - he was the Labour minister who brought East Coast under public control and is now calling for that again as Virgin and Stagecoach are about to be bailed out by the Government.

Today's National Campaign Day for Labour is about rail fare rises hitting commuters across the UK. We’re seeing the highest increase in 5 years.

In Northampton inflation-linked fare rises mean a season ticket to Euston is now over £5,000 a year.

I was on BBC Radio Northampton this defending Labour's policy of bringing our railways back under public control and ending the scandal of our fares subsiding public railways in other countries!

The Vice-Chancellor of the University of Northampton has given his view to the BBC.

Happy New Year! It's the first working day of 2018 and so for many commuters in Northampton that means a steep hike those travelling to work by train to London and Birmingham.

A season ticket to Euston now costs an eye-watering £5,604.

So I've been on BBC Radio Northampton this morning discussing funding of the railways and defending Labour's policy of bringing the franchises under public control.

Lots of Labour members talking about Brexit. Did you know Kevin is the only local candidate in the Northampton South selection to campaign with Jeremy Corbyn for Remain? The other local candidate supported the Tory and Ukip-dominated Leave campaign > share the facts

‪Not for the first time, or indeed the last, Lord Adonis speaks truth to power.

Check out his interview with Toby Helm in Sunday’s Observer. He slams the Tory government for their taxpayer bailout of the private rail barons and shines a light on the Brexit chaos unfolding around us.
