John supported More United's campaign on the impact of Brexit on the NHS by adding his name to cross-party calls for a debate. More United supporters backed him at the 2017 General Election.
How More United supports John
John is a dedicated local MP and a prominent mental health campaigner, having spoken openly of his own struggle with depression. "Stigma clearly still exists, but as a result of great awareness-raising initiatives like world mental health day earlier this year, the name calling seems more and more likely to be called out as unacceptable and wrong."
In 2013 John established a credit union in his constituency after a commission he launched alerted him to the rise of legal loan sharks preying on the poorest.
John has shown himself to be an independent-minded MP, defying his party whips on many occasions when he felt he needed to put country before party.
