I hugely admire and respect those who do well in life but not those who enjoy success then pull up the ladder.

Stephen Hepburn MP for the Jarrow Constituency has slammed the Tory Government following the release of the local unemployment figures.

We love our football in the North East despite so many fans suffering as Sunderland and Newcastle flirt with relegation.

Dennis, Oz, Neville, Barry, Bomber, Moxey and Wayne were our Magnificent Seven, a group of British migrant workers escaping unemployment in Tory Britain (sound familiar?) to graft on a German building site near Dusseldorf.

I was delighted my recent talks with South Tyneside Councillors resulted in a positive outcome regarding the future of Bede's World.

Stephen Hepburn MP for the Jarrow Constituency has blasted the recently released local unemployment figures. 

Budget spin by a Chancellor of the Exchequer who couldn't find his way to Tyneside can't hide a brutal truth.

Stephen Hepburn MP is supporting musicians and film-makers from the Jarrow Constituency by calling for local artists to enter Parliament’s two largest creative competitions, Rock the House and Film the House.

Here's proof the Conservative slogan about a Northern Powerhouse is cynical propaganda when deep cuts confirm the Tory Party treats us as a Northern Poorhouse.

One of the jobs I had before I became a Labour MP was a building labourer so I'm all too aware of the importance of health and safety in the construction industry.

Stephen Hepburn MP for the Jarrow Constituency met up with a former Banks of the Tyne Sunday league football teammate from Hebburn and Blind Veteran UK member at a special Parliamentary reception earlier this week and pledged to ensure that Armed Forces veterans will not have to battle blindness alone. 

Commenting on his position regarding the European Union, Stephen Hepburn MP said:

“I strongly believe that we should remain part of the European Union because the North East does well out of it. Our region are net beneficiaries of EU funding. We are the only region which are net exporters of manufactured goods and we have major employers such as Nissan and Hitachi who have located here for ready access to the EUs massive market.”
