Exclusive: shadow minister launches deputy leadership bid with a unifying pitch
Dr Rosena Allin-KhanI'm standing to be Labour Deputy Leader because I want to bring our movement together.
When united- we achieve, creating the NHS.

I have been told to ‘go home’ – especially on Twitter, when someone disagrees with me. Back a People’s Vote? Go home. Talk about sexism in football? Go home. And now, I assume, I would get the same treatment from the leader of the free world

An MP today called for more CCTV in care homes after telling how she found her elderly father mysteriously covered in blood and bruises. Rosena Allin-Khan told fellow MPs how she pleaded in vain for an explanation for her father’s catalogue of...
Dr Rosena Allin-KhanMy dad was so petrified in his care home, that he refused to sleep in his room and started sleeping in communal areas which had CCTV.
