Why Jo backs More United:
"I've supported More United from the very start, and loved campaigning beyond party lines at the Richmond Park action day. In Parliament I want to champion an open, tolerant, inclusive society, and challenge division and nationalism. Politics needs disrupting and More United is certainly making waves."
About Jo Swinson MP
Jo is passionate about maximising the UK’s economic potential and the role girls and young women can play in this. She works in and out of parliament to ensure girls and young women can reach their full potential, including chairing the Gender Balance Taskforce working to help get more women into parliamentary positions.
Jo campaigned vigorously against the so called ‘rape clause’ in the changes to tax credits rules. She is a champion for youth political engagement and has called for the voting age to be lowered to 16.
She enters her race 2167 votes behind the current SNP MP and with More United support will be fighting from a stronger position.
