Liz Kendall MP

MP for Leicester West

I’m proud to back More United’s progressive values. There is too much division in our politics and country at the moment and the beliefs that so many of us hold are under threat. I have always believed that we have more that unites us than divides us and that if we work together, we can create a fairer and more tolerant society.

Liz has represented Leicester West since 2010. Before becoming an MP she worked in health and social care and was director of Maternity Alliance, a charity for pregnant women. She’s a vocal advocate for the Living Wage, a strong supporter of LGBTQ rights and has campaigned for more urgent action to tackle climate change.

During the 2015 Labour leadership election Liz called on her party to embrace the business community, saying at the time: "There are many good businesses that share our agenda, but they did not feel they could be part of what we were saying, because too much of the time they heard us attacking business.”

Liz is committed to the principle of working across party boundaries for the good of the country. Recently she has been working with More United-backed MP Norman Lamb (Lib Dem) and MP Sarah Wollaston (Conservative) to address the considerable challenges facing the NHS and social care system. They have called on the Government to establish a cross-party convention to find a sustainable, long-term solution to these challenges.
