Flint (Caroline, not the hard, sedimentary cryptocrystalline form of the mineral quartz)

Caroline 4 Deputy

Caroline’s vision for the party:

Our party is not a pressure group. We exist to win elections to improve lives and make the world a better place:

• We need support from all classes, all backgrounds and all corners of the UK. As someone who chaired a constituency party in a marginal seat, Caroline knows we will only succeed if Labour rediscovers its voice, providing real community leadership, especially where we do not have a Labour MP.

• Caroline will work closely with local councillors; she’s even married to one! They have a vital role to play. Labour must be a grassroots movement, not a Westminster elite.

Caroline’s background:

• Caroline was born to a lone parent at 17. She has never known her real dad.

• Caroline was the first in her family to go to university.

• Caroline joined the Labour Party at 17, in 1979. She ran her university Labour Club and was Labour’s student national women’s officer. Caroline was also chair of a marginal constituency in London.

• Caroline worked in local government, the voluntary sector and for a trade union before becoming an MP. In local government she was a union workplace rep.

• Caroline was chair of a marginal constituency in London.

• Caroline was first elected as the MP for Don Valley in 1997. She has been been re-elected four times, and in 2015 she almost trebled her majority, consigning UKIP – who held their party conference in Doncaster – to third place.
