Christine Jardine is the Liberal Democratic MP for Edinburgh West. She was backed by More United in the last election.
How More United supports Christine
Previously a journalist and university teacher, Christine was a prominent figure within the Better Together campaign in the run-up to the Scottish Independence Referendum.
She has been outspoken about the need to improve the gender-balance of parties and Parliament, resigning her role as Environment Spokesman for the Scottish Liberal Democrats over the issue.
She has worked with More United on a variety of campaigns. She has co-led More United’s immigration campaign, alongside Nicky Morgan MP (Conservative) and Tulip Siddiq MP (Labour). As part of this, she wrote to the Chancellor to ask him to restore the budget for the Migrant Impact Fund in the 2018 Autumn Budget, and encouraged other MPs to do the same. She has also signed the backbench debate request on protecting the NHS from Brexit and invited More United volunteers to action days. For More United’s campaign to restore the Access to Elected Office Fund, she wrote to the Home Secretary requesting its restoration. She's been a vocal Parliamentary advocate for the WASPI campaign, representing the large numbers of women in her constituency and elsewhere who have been unfairly impacted by changes to the state pension age. She also signed More United’s backbench debate request on Legal Aid.
