Over 200 candidates in general election pledge to #Stopthenastiness
16 December 2019
237 candidates standing in the general election 2019 pledged their support to the Compassion in Politics campaign to #StopTheNastiness.
The campaign asked candidates to make a commitment to:
- Campaign with respect
- Promote compassion
- Call out hate
Among the signatories were Sir Keir Starmer, Yasmin Qureshi, Caroline Lucas, and Penny Mordaunt.
Compassion in Politics will now be working with the MPs who were elected at the 2019 election on reforms that can be made in parliament to continue to spread the message of #StopTheNastiness, including working with them towards the adoption of the new code of conduct for MPs proposed by Compassion in Politics and More United.
