Description

Shadow Chancellor since 2015 and MP for Hayes and Harlington since 1997, McDonnell has campaigned against the Iraq war and argued for curbs in bankers bonuses, decent pensions, free elderly care, a fair taxation system, defending the NHS and extending public ownership. He is a committed environmentalist, trade unionist and anti-nuclear campaigner. Alongside Jeremy Corbyn, McDonnell has been a key figure in setting out a new direction for the Labour party, pledging to increase spending on infrastructure and research, describing his vision for the economy as socialism with an iPad.
