Miranda Suit was born and raised in Sidcup and Chislehurst. Committed to serving the community, she has worked to support homeless people in the West End and as a volunteer street pastor in Bromley.
She believes in tackling some of the causes of social breakdown and in 2000 co-founded Mediamarch, a peaceful protest group seeking stronger obscenity laws and restoration of basic decency to all media. Her campaigning is based on research linking violent entertainment and pornography with violent and sexual crime. Inspired by her Christian faith, she is particularly concerned about people who become addicted to harmful media material, especially children.
" We must not forget the influence of the media: it needs much stronger regulation so that our young people are not constantly conditioned by violent films, video games and lyrics; pornography must be outlawed so that it cannot undermine marriage and the dignity of women and encourage sex crime. All schools should teach Christian values."
Miranda works as Director of the Soup Kitchen at the American Church in London. She has 4 children who are half Ugandan and therefore has a special interest in promoting racial justice and harmony. Her hobbies are walking and gardening. She attends Bromley Town Church.
"I run a soup kitchen for homeless people and know how vital it is to increase the supply of affordable housing. I will campaign to do this by bringing empty homes back into use, converting buildings to residential or mixed use and using vacant sites. The Christian Choice will also promote vital rent deposit schemes."
