Steve's Maiden Speech(June 17, 2011)
Steve delivered his Maiden Speech to the House on 17 June 2010.
In it, he criticised the owners of Liverpool Football Club and called legendary Liverpool Manager Bill Shankly "one of the greatest socialist philosophers of the last century".
Steve signalled his intent to be a thorn in the side of the coalition government, so as to ensure that Liverpool will not be disproportionately affected by public sector cuts. He also vowed to "campaign for parity of esteem between vocational and academic training routes".
