David Lammy

MP, Campaigner and Chorister


David Lammy, MP for Tottenham, is most renowned for leading the fight for a referendum on the final negotiated Brexit deal.

However, when David Lammy was named Politician of the Year by both GQ and the Political Studies Association, he dedicated both awards to his parents, the Windrush Generation and his friend Khadija Saye who lost her life in Grenfell Tower. David was the first to call for independent inquiry into the Grenfell Tower Fire. He has also secured a Compensation Fund for the victims of the Windrush scandal, placing pressure on the government to treat their plight as an injustice to be rectified.
