Diane Abbott MP Shadow Home Secretary and MP for Hackney North and Stoke Newington
"In my time both as Shadow Home Secretary and the MP for Hackney North and Stoke Newington, it is with immense pride that I have witnessed the great achievements of, and served Britain’s Kurdish population. Having seen the successes of Kurdish businesses that contribute to our local and national economies, alongside the accomplishments of British Kurds in fields such as journalism, politics and many others, I believe firmly that the UK Kurdish community has changed British society for the better in numerous ways. Such efforts and strides are something that we can be thankful for and inspired by.
I am delighted to lend my support to the members of this wonderful community once again, and wish them, all their friends and families, the very best for the future."
