The case for supporting areas of the country outside of London who are suffering from poor economic outcomes is a strong one.
However, this narrative is often accompanied by a framing against London. The truth is that Londoners are struggling too with the city seeing the highest poverty rate in the country.
We want to challenge this divisive tactic and ensure that low-income Londoners and those struggling to afford a decent standard of living in the capital are not forgotten about or ignored. We believe that no matter where you live or who you are, you should have access to economic opportunity that allows you to live your life free from poverty.
