Clive Lewis is the Labour Party MP for Norwich South. Clive’s father is from Grenada (a Caribbean Island) and his mother English.
He was the first person in his family to attend university where he read economics. After becoming involved in university and national student politics, he went back to university to train as a journalist. He worked on various newspapers and was eventually recruited by the BBC where he worked for the past 12 years as political and news reporter. In early 2000, Clive joined the Army Reserves, becoming an infantry officer in 2006. In 2009, he served in charge of a small group of soldiers in Afghanistan. On his return, he stood for the Labour Party parliamentary candidacy of Norwich South.
For me both journalism and politics is about making a difference. Ultimately it is our friends, neighbours and family that make life worth living. So why not work with them and make all our lives that little bit better and happier?
