I’ve been the MP for Doncaster North since 2005 and Leader of the Labour Party since September 2010.
I came into politics because I do not accept that change is simply done to people. Instead, I believe politics can help shape change so that it improves the life of people who feel the way Britain is run does not work for them.
Britain is a great country but we are being held back from achieving our full potential. The rules of our society too often reward people for doing the wrong things while those who work hard, and deserve more, struggle.
I lead a Labour Party that is determined to fulfil the immense promise of this country and ensure the next generation can do better than the last.
I grew up in North London and went to Haverstock Comprehensive School in Chalk Farm. I live in Doncaster North, where I am the local MP and my family home is in London. I live with my wife, Justine, and our two young sons.
Labour is determined to be a party that looks outwards, not inwards. That means talking to people, but also listening and responding to them too. That’s what this page is for.
