When he was elected as the MP for Ilford North in 2015, Wes Streeting achieved the biggest swing towards Labour from the Conservatives in the general election. Despite growing up in relative poverty and having family members in prison, Streeting attended Cambridge University and went on to become President of the National Union of Students. He credits his varied upbringing with being able to bring people over to his side and believes in engaging the world where he finds it rather than how he wishes it was. He is now the Shadow Secretary of State for Health and Social Care.
