Rosie Duffield's election in 2017 was a national news story, she became the first ever Labour MP for Canterbury. In 2019 her majority increased tenfold. She tells the remarkable story of how she became a politician in the first place and how she won the unwinnable, twice. Rosie has only been an MP for five years but in that time has made a name for herself as someone who speaks her mind, however uncomfortable the subject matter. At times an emotional listen, Rosie opens up about challenging the establishment, including her own party. This is politics straight from the heart.
