Emily Thornberry MP for Islington South & Finsbury, Shadow Attorney General
Emily Thornberry MP for Islington South & Finsbury, Shadow Attorney General

In the 2019 General Election, Emily Thornberry was returned as our MP with a majority of 17,328.
In 2022, Labour retained 45 of the 48 seats on Islington council – we first won overall control of the council in 2010.

These successes, which were a result of our direct contact with voters, are enabling us to put our values into practice and to make tangible improvements in the lives of our communities.

Our policies are aimed at reducing inequality and eliminating poverty

  • Living wage: Islington was the first council to introduce the living wage for all its
    employees; we insist that suppliers do the same.
  • New homes: we will build more than 550 new council homes by the end of 2022.
  • Social rents: we are opposing pressure from the Tory government to raise council rents to 80% of market rate.
  • Education: we introduced a £300-a- year student bursary to help young people continue to study beyond the age of 16.
  • Environment: Bunhill Heat and Power provides  cheaper and greener energy to around 800 homes on local estates and two leisure centres, and an additional energy centre is under development to recover heat from the London Underground.

Labour makes a difference to the lives of people in our communities, but everything we achieve begins with local members devoting their time and energy to our campaigns.
