I want to increase the number of opportunities available to the residents of Kensington and Chelsea rather than restrict them. George Osborne, the ex-chancellor of the exchequer, recently said that the Conservatives were prioritizing immigration to the detriment of a growing economy. I used to work in the City and I and many colleagues lost their jobs in the recession in 2008. I believe if the Conservatives pursue a Hard Brexit the residents of Kensington and Chelsea will suffer.
We need to rethink business rates and invest in connectivity and innovation in the borough.
