Karen Allen

I fought South Shields at the May 2010 General Election for the Conservatives, gaining a 6.4% swing which was a 4% vote increase. The Conservatives polled 7,886 up from 5,207 in 2005. I was born in the North East and grew up in South Shields. I currently live in London and am employed as a Director at Lloyd's Broker Howden International.

Mending Our Broken Society

Labour have presided over the longest and deepest economic recession since the war, but that is more than matched by the social recession we are stuck in today. Everyone hopes and expects we are out of economic recession, but unless we change the direction of government fundamentally, we will never find the path to social recovery. We can’t go out on like this. We need change to get this country back on its feet.

To mend our broken society, four areas of policy will be subject to our unremitting focus: fixing the criminal justice system, school reform, strengthening families and stimulating social action in our communities. Today, we published our full draft manifesto chapter that sets out how we will do that. For more information, please see:
