David Miliband is supporting the campaign to re-elect Gareth Thomas as the MP for Harrow West.
I'm proud to call Gareth Thomas a friend.
He's been an outstanding MP for Harrow West, with real local roots and a genuine global vision, exemplified by his support for better British relations with India.
Gareth has got strong values, and a lot of common sense. Parliament needs both.
I'm genuinely fearful of the effect of a 'hard Brexit' - a 'brutal Brexit' - on communities like Harrow, and other communities up and down the country.
I know that Gareth will fight against the damage of a 'hard Brexit'. I know that he'll seek to protect the British economy, and I know that he'll also stand up against damaging isolationism, like the attempt to include higher education students in the immigration cap.
I trust Gareth Thomas, I really hope you'll support him on June 8th.
