Rhiannon Meades speaking at the Labour Party's Mid Bedfordshire Candidate Launch at The Hive, Shefford

Rhiannon Meades wants to put “put heat under Nadine’s feet”

Rhiannon Meades speaking at the Labour Party’s Mid Bedfordshire Candidate Launch at The Hive, Shefford yesterday (10 November 2019) said that the advantage she has as standing as a candidate is that people recognise her as the ‘Face of Labour’ and that people can reach out to her for help.

She gave examples of people who had shared their stories with her.

Such as Paul, who can’t get on a train at Flitwick Station because there isn’t access, Rita who has faced increased racism since the Brexit vote, and a mother who is in temporary accommodation as a home can’t be found for her family.

Rhiannon told the Labour Party members that the Mid Beds Conservative MP, Nadine Dorris, is “not here”.

“She is not here for Rita who desperate in my ward.

“She is not here for Paul in Flitwick who can’t get on a bloody train.

“She is not here for mums in temporary accommodation.

“But we are.”

She added that the Labour Party members can shine a light on Dorries’s “absence and neglect” and that she wanted to “put heat under Nadine’s feet”.
