"The NHS requires radical change, modernisation and long-term planning. Both locally and nationally Labour will rise to this challenge to make it a service that provides the medical and social care patients should expect and staff are valued and supported. Labour have an excellent candidate in Yuan Yang, she has many of the skills required both to serve as our local MP and contribute to national issues."

"I'm a youth worker and I've lived in Earley for almost 30 years now. Every day, I see young people struggling with mental health. Labour will put early-stage intervention into every school, and that’s something I’m really excited to see. I believe a Labour government will bring answers that we haven’t had for the past 14 years, and that’s why I'll be voting Labour in Earley and Woodley this year."

"It’s so obvious to me that people are desperate for a bold new vision for themselves and their families. It’s a vision for a fairer society with strong public services built on the opportunities that come from the green transition. Yuan has already achieved remarkable things through her intellect and hard work."

Andrew Charlton-Perez

Earley resident and former Chair of Governors of Radstock Primary School


“In this new constituency, the demand for groundbreaking leadership is paramount. Yuan's intellect and intuition extend far beyond the realm of national and international affairs, revealing a profound and nuanced grasp of local concerns. Moreover, Yuan's aptitude for introducing fresh, innovative ideas to the table is precisely what we require to tackle the multitude of issues that confront us today. Her unique blend of knowledge and creativity makes her an exceptional choice to represent our interests in Parliament.”

Over the past decade I've seen her go on to inspire a generation of young economists worldwide through setting up the Rethinking Economics campaign.
