Bio: Emily Greenwood (née Reed) is a British politician and the Labour Member of Parliament for Copeland. She was born in the small village of Chapel Stile in Great Langdale in the Lake District, the daughter of the vicar, the Rev. Walter Reed, and his wife, Louisa Reed (née White). Growing up in the Lakes, from a very early age Emily learned to appreciate the idyllic surroundings and sense of community in the village. Being educated at church schools, first at the Langdale C of E Primary School in Chapel Stile and then elsewhere in the Lakes, she was instilled with a thoroughly Christian ethic that came to form the basis of her politics. Inspired by the politics of Tony Blair, she joined the Labour Party in 1998 at age 16 despite the generally Conservative leanings of her family (her maternal cousin Justine Granger would go on to be elected as Tory MP for Guildford).

An excellent student, Emily was admitted to Churchill College, Cambridge, where she studied Politics, Philosophy and Economics. She graduated with a Master's Degree in History from that same college in 2003. Returning to the Lake District and starting as a teacher in Keswick, she reconnected with many of her friends there, including her childhood sweetheart John Greenwood, who runs a B&B in the area and specialises in Ecotourism. The couple got back together shortly after and they married in 2005. Their daughter Martha was born 6 months later.

Politics and social engagement never left Emily's life. She got engaged with a number of environmental initiatives to preserve the Lakes, including a stint at the Lake District Search and Mountain Rescue Association (though she was never on the rescue team due to her fear of heights). Active in the Copeland CLP since she returned home especially to campaign for the 2005 election in a number of constituencies in the area, she was drafted to run for Allerdale Council in 2008. Her activities for charity and on the local council resulted in her selection as Labour's PPC for Copeland in the run-up to the 2010 election, at which she was elected Member of Parliament.

After a term of largely focusing on being a good constituency MP, Emily was re-elected for Copeland at the 2015 general election. Her voting record, being slightly to the right of the leadership, has given her a Blairite reputation. In a move widely attributed to a need for party unity, Emily was appointed Shadow Culture, Media and Sports Secretary in 2015. Though she has at times been critical of Jeremy Corbyn's leadership, especially over the touchy issue of nuclear disarmament, she does acknowledge that his support spells out the need for a new radicalism in the Labour Party.

Emily is a member of Progress and Christians of the Left (formerly the Christian Socialist Movement). She was elected Leader of the Labour Party by a record majority of 88% of the first-preference votes in 2017. She was re-elected with an increased majority in the 2018 general election, which was won by her party at 35% of the vote and a plurality of the seats. After a long formation, Emily was appointed Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, the youngest since William Pitt the Younger.

"No place for Christian politics? The world is aching for Christian politics! A politics that speaks for those that have no voice; that acts for those that have no hands; that finds a path for those who can't find their feet; that helps those that have no helper."
- Wim Aantjes

Almost Trudeau-esque" - Josh (Kirton)
