My Story - Ali Milani
For me, Uxbridge and South Ruislip is home.
For all of my adult life I have lived here, studied here and worked here. Like so many of us in the community I have felt the full impacts of 8 years of Boris Johnson and successive Tory governments.
I grew up with a single mother who traveled across the world with a simple belief, that my sister and I should have the opportunity to live in a fair society. We would be brought up in a working class council house believing that our communities are only as strong as our most vulnerable members.
I love our community here in Uxbridge and South Ruislip and I am proud to serve as a local Councillor in the Heathrow Villages. We know the importance of a local champion in our borough. When our MP and Westminster let us down on Heathrow expansion, it was us, the local activists and community groups that stood up to fight. Now we need that fight in our member of Parliament.
Boris Johnson see’s us, his constituents, as a platform to becoming Prime Minister. I have heard on every doorstep and in every community that residents have had enough of MP’s being parachuted in and our residents being used as political tools.
In the next election, we can change everything.
I believe its time for a local candidate.
We are building a campaign that places our community and residents at its heart. Uxbridge and South Ruislip needs a local and vocal champion to take hold of this opportunity.
I am standing to be that champion.

Uxbridge and South Ruislip is our home and I want to hear from you. Your stories, your concerns and what you want the future of our community to be.
A People powered campaign
Be part of a people-powered campaign to banish Boris.
People like me aren’t meant to become MPs. My family travelled to the UK when I was just five years old. I grew up on a council estate, with a single parent who spoke little English, struggling to make ends meet. I don’t have the billionaire backers Boris does. But we have something much more powerful: each other.
If we all chip in we can win and make history by running the first campaign the UK has ever seen to topple the Prime Minister. Any donation, large or small, will make a huge impact. From the leaflets we deliver, the community events we run to our reach on social media.
Together, we can help get our constituency, our country, the respect it deserves – and wrestle its fate from people like Boris. We can't keep asking to be heard - when they won't listen. It's time for us to lead.
