On 4th July, we face a choice: more of the same chaos and division with the Conservatives or change with Labour.

After 14 years of the Conservatives, our country feels broken. We’re worse off, with soaring bills and the highest taxes in 70 years. People struggle to see a GP, and our streets feel unsafe. Nothing seems to work anymore.

But it’s not too late. We can get Britain’s future back. We can build a future where families prosper, people can get ahead, streets are safe, businesses flourish, our children get a first-rate

education and everyone gets the NHS care they need.

I believe in Britain. My father, a Holocaust survivor, was welcomed here as a refugee. Our NHS helped me overcome a speech impediment and it saved my daughter’s life. It’s why I’ve spent years fighting for local people in our constituency – the only candidate to do so.

Under my plan for Hendon, a Labour government will help cut bills and make work pay. We will bring back family doctors and bring in the biggest expansion in NHS history. We’ll put 13,000 more neighbourhood police and PCSOs on the street and crack down on crime. We’ll open 3,000 in-school nurseries, recruit more teachers and strengthen tenants’ and leaseholders’ rights.

It’s a two horse race in Hendon. Voting for any other party helps the Conservatives.

Only a Labour MP can bring change here. Only a Labour MP can deliver for you.

The choice is clear. Vote for change. Vote Labour.

Statements from the eight candidates: Gabrielle Bailey – Green Party, Clareine Enderby – Liberal Democrats, Jane Gibson – Social Democratic Party, Ameet Jogia – Conservative, Imtiaz Palekar – Workers Party, Joshua Pearl – Reform UK, David Pinto-Dushchinsky – Labour, Ben Rend – Rejoin EU

Note: Barnet Post approached all candidates for the borough’s seats and offered them the opportunity to make a 250-word statement. The purpose of these statements is to give voters the clearest possible understanding of the perspectives of people who are asking for their support. In doing this, we acknowledge that some views expressed my cause offence and distress and apologise if this is the case.
