Head and shoulders picture of Clive Lewis smiling

Clive Lewis

Clive is a Labour politician in the UK who has been the Member of Parliament for Norwich South since winning the seat at the 2015 general election. He was a candidate for Leader of the Labour Party in the 2020 leadership election. Clive previously served as vice-president of the National Union of Students, worked as a TV reporter for BBC News and served as an infantry officer with the Territorial Army. He served a three-month tour of duty in Afghanistan in 2009. Clive became shadow defence secretary in June 2016 and shadow business secretary in October 2016. He left the Shadow Cabinet in 2017 in protest over the Labour Party’s decision to whip its MPs into voting to trigger Article 50, but rejoined the front bench a year later as shadow minister for sustainable economics.

Clive is a Humanist. He is a member of the All-Party Parliamentary Humanists Group and was elected as its chair in 2015. He seems to be veg*an, possibly implying a sentiocentric moral scope.
