Autism, Neurodiversity and the Labour Party: statement from Janine Booth and Monique Craine

We are working with Shadow Chancellor John McDonnell to progress the idea of the Labour Party developing a Neurodiversity/Autism Manifesto and appointing a Shadow Minister for Neurodiversity. We are pleased to hear from John that Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn also supports this idea.

Railway Woman

I am a railway woman, love my job
I take you there and back, I take your fare
Sometimes behind the scenes, sometimes you’ll see me
I fix the track or operate the signal
I clean the station, guard or drive the train
And when you need me, here I am to help.

Family Values

Son's dressing up, he looks pretty in pink
Dad's in the kitchen, his arms in the sink
Daughter's out fixing the car with her tools
Mum's on the picket line, breaking the rules​
