"You know me. I'm an experienced, independent, pro European. I'll stick to my principles, I'll never sell out."
Daniel lives in Cambridge on Victoria Road with his partner Barbara (known as ‘Budge’), very close to where they lived when they met as students at King’s College.
Before he became MP for Cambridge, Daniel had a variety of jobs in the public and private sectors and ran his own business.
As MP Daniel has been a leading voice against privatisation of local health services, he's also been instrumental in securing laws to take back control of our local bus services. Daniel is passionate about social justice and is a recognised Living Wage Foundation Parliamentary Champion.
Daniel is a keen environmentalist and is an executive member of Labour’s national environmental campaigning group making the case for a shift to a greener tax policy. He's also a bee fan - he is passionate about saving the Ruderal bumblebee and is buzzing with enthuasiam to stop bee killing pesticides!
As a constitutional reformer Daniel runs a Labour group campaigning to reform the House of Lords. Daniel is also a patron of the Westminster Higher Education Forum, which aims to raise the quality of debate on public policy.
Outside politics Daniel is a keen sportsman, he enjoys cycling and walking and was a promising middle-distance runner in his youth. He is a Cambridge United fan and enjoys music.
Daniel says: "I'm experienced at getting the best for Cambridge securing the law to take back control of our local buses, and shut down the secret department trying to privatise our Health Service.
I know Cambridge - not just the picture postcard scenes but I'm rooted in the local community. I'm a season ticket holder at Cambridge United and enjoy music at Kettles Yard.
I'm independent. I don't just blindly follow the party line, I rebelled over tax credits, by voting to support changing to a proportional voting system and on staying in the European Union. I do right by Cambridge.
I will stick to my principles and never sell out."
