The Labour MP (who describes herself as a "northern European socialist – a democratic socialist" who supports "fettered capitalism" – was first elected in 2015). She represents the area of Bristol West and is the shadow leader of the House of Commons.

On her constituency website, it explains: "She started out as a professional cellist, but for 25 years before becoming an MP her main focus was working to end domestic violence.

"She was Women’s Aid’s first-ever national children’s officer, setting up support projects in refuges across the UK for children. In this work she helped everyone involved in the cycle of domestic violence: women, men and children; victims, perpetrators and witnesses."
