Christian Wolmar was overwhelmingly selected by local members as Labour’s candidate to fight the Richmond Park by-election

Labour has selected transport expert Christian Wolmar to be its candidate in the Richmond Park by-election.

Christian Wolmar is a writer and broadcaster specialising in transport. Earlier, Christian worked for the housing charity Shelter and for Camden Council. He has also written a dozen books including an influential critique of rail privatisation, a series on railway history and 'Forgotten Children', an expose of abuse in children's homes.

Christian Wolmar, Labour’s candidate for the Richmond Park by-election, said:

“Richmond Park has been badly let down by both the Tories and the Liberal Democrats. Successive MPs have failed to address the problems that exist here like availability of affordable housing and cuts to the local NHS.

“It’s a great honour to be selected to stand for Labour in the Richmond Park by-election which gives us an opportunity to expose the disastrous policies of this government and fight the third runway at Heathrow which I have long opposed.

“The Liberal Democrats and Zac Goldsmith supported every terrible decision taken by the last coalition government, from austerity to the unnecessary and expensive top-down reorganisation & creeping privatisation of the NHS. The Lib Dems are not a progressive alternative, but Labour is.

“Zac Goldsmith played a key role in the Leave campaign which led to the decision to take us out of the EU – a decision that 72 per cent of voters here opposed. The only way to send a message to this government and that we do not accept what they are doing to our country is to vote Labour.

Zac Goldsmith is a serial underachiever who has never been a success in business or politics despite the vast opportunities he has been afforded. His lack of values, experience and substance shows he simply isn't up to the job of leading the world's greatest city.

Labour announces list of candidates for London Assembly elections

The London Labour Party has announced its full list of candidates for the London Assembly elections being contested in May 2016.

The list includes Constituency Assembly candidates selected by local Labour Party members and List Assembly candidates announced by the London Labour Party Regional Board.

Len Duvall AM, Chair of the London Labour Regional Board, said:

“This is an exceptional list of candidates full of talent and experience. It’s also a list that reflects London in terms of women, BAME and LGBT candidates. It’s the strongest team we’ve ever had to represent Londoners across our city, and work with Sadiq Khan leading the campaign in London up to May.”
