John Whitaker Straw (born August 3, 1946), commonly known as Jack Straw, is a British Labour Party politician.
Born in Essex, and brought up by a single mother on a council estate, he was educated at Brentwood School (where he took the name "Jack" after the 14th century peasant leader Jack Straw) and the University of Leeds.
During his time as president of the Leeds students' union, and subsequently of the National Union of Students, he was regarded as a radical on issues of social equality and race, though he opposed drugs.

In the run up to the 2005 UK general election Straw faced a potential backlash from his Muslim constituents over the Iraq war - the Muslim Public Affairs Committee attempted to capitalise on anti-war sentiment with 'operation Muslim vote' in Blackburn but Straw was re-elected on just a slightly reduced majority despite their best efforts.
Straw enjoys a reputation for involved local campaigning in his constituency despite his cabinet post, often spending many hours in the run up to elections literally standing on a soapbox in a high street area taking questions from the crowd and responding to criticism with a microphone.
On October 13, 2005 Straw took questions from a panel of (mostly anti-war) individuals in a Newsnight TV special on the subject of Iraq, adressing widespread public concerns about the exit strategy for British troops, the insurgency in Iraq and inevitably the moral legitimacy of the war.

And so we went to Jack and Jill and Tots and Teens and we took flute lessons and piano lessons and ballet lessons and swimming lessons and on Saturdays, French lessons.
And that, in turn, depends on trust, which has to be earned by politicians, whether on an international and national or other stage, but again, which can best be demonstrated locally to show that the actions which we take in the world affect daily lives in our own communities for the better.
