I shall be standing at the next general election (it must be held before May 2024, 30 months away) in my home constituency of Bedford, where I’ve lived for the past 25 years. It was a marginal seat for Labour in the 2017 and 2019 general elections. In 2019 Mohammad Yasin MP retained the seat with a majority of just 145 votes over his Conservative rival (the seat has been won by either the Labour or Conservative party, usually the Conservatives, for the past 100 years). It’s the most marginal Labour seat in the country, and according to the last census 8% of the citizens of Bedford are Muslims.
I’ve spent a lot of time in recent months in discussions with key advisors, considering the future of J4MB. In the New Year – possibly February or March – we’ll be relaunching the party with a different name and strategy, to maximise our votes, and change the outcome of the election in Bedford.
I’m really excited about the future potential of the party, and I’ll be outlining the thinking behind it in my opening speech at ICMI21. It will be titled, “Women’s Rights v Others’ Rights, a Political Strategy to Strengthen the Family, Abortion and Foetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder.” Tickets for the 6-day conference have just gone on sale, priced at just £20.00. You can order your ticket through this link.
