November 27, 2011 3:27 pm

Harlow CLP have selected Suzy Stride as their candidate for the next general election. Suzy works for a grassroots charity tackling social exclusion and worklessness in East London, diverting hundreds of young people away from crime and into education and work. She also works as an advisor to Baroness Jan Royall, Labour’s leader in the House of Lords, on the policy review, ‘What Makes Politics Count for Young People’.

Congratulations to Suzy, and commiserations to the other shortlisted candidates.

    Think this seat might be a hard nut to crack as its far less Labour than it once was.

      Well it is still a marginal, and if we are going to have a majority we need to take it.

    Congratulations to Suzy.  We are all looking forward to working with Suzy to return Harlow to Labour

    If we want to engage young people, we need to change

    It is actually possible to transform the landscape of youth engagement in politics. It’s an incredible injustice that so many young people do not vote or engage in politics, not because they are not interested, but because the methods of engagement are not youth friendly or their perceptions of politics are of self-interest and irrelevance. For the Labour Party, engaging young people in the political process is not just something nice to do, but vital to our cause. We need […]

    A day on the road with a Tory mole

    It’s quite amusing when you spot you are being infiltrated by someone from the other side. You are faced with the choice: do we tell him we know or do we keep him with us. We went for the latter. So for any Tory kids out there thinking of doing something similar here’s a handy idiots guide of top tips for those attempting to go behind enemy lines. 1.   Remember what your name is supposed to be when asked.  Even Grant […]

    Ed Miliband could be about to offer his brother a way back into politics

    Earlier this month, we reported the rumour that David Miliband could be eyeing up a job in a future Hillary Clinton administration over in the US. However, it seems he might be offered a way back into politics before 2016. This morning’s Times Red Box email reports that Ed Miliband is being urged to consider making his brother the British ambassador to the US if Labour come to power next May. David Miliband’s previous experience as the UK’s foreign secretary would […]

    Austin Mitchell showed us why people hate politicians

    Whilst I was out at the weekend campaigning in Hampstead & Kilburn to get the brilliant Tulip Sadiq elected Austin Mitchell picked up his poised pen and with one article brought shame to our PLP. Not only were his comments ageist and sexist – in the extreme – he also demonstrated complete contempt for both our party and his constituents. In doing so confirmed every disengaged voter’s fear about the politicians – that they’re only in it for themselves – […]

    Britain has to fight ISIS, but should be wary of their trap

    Yesterday night the terrorist group Islamic State released a video in which they beheaded the American journalist James Foley. I would not recommend watching it. The ISIS video was gruesome but it showed more than tragedy – it was also a carefully constructed act of propaganda. And its important we take that into account before deciding on a response. The video begins with President Obama talking about air-strikes against Islamic State. It ends with the executioner telling the camera: “[A]ny […]
