CAMDEN MPs reacted with dismay to the election of Donald Trump as the next president of the United States as his victory against Hillary Clinton was confirmed on Wednesday.
Holborn and St Pancras MP Keir Starmer said: “In the face of the triumph of anti-politics intolerance and division, our shared values in Camden of fairness, equality and respect are needed as never before.”
Hampstead and Kilburn MP Tulip Siddiq, who watched the results at a Democrats in London party, said: “It’s a devastating day. It’s more important than ever to work together. We need to challenge hate and protect the most vulnerable. Stay strong.”
