Harlow PPC selected

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

    Burnham asks Government to release A&E figures

    Andy Burnham, Shadow Health Secretary is asking Health Secretary, Jeremy Hunt, to release data that will allow the public to see how A&E departments cope over the Christmas and New Year period. This comes after news that from this Friday NHS England will stop publishing weekly performance figures for three weeks (although they can still be obtained from hospital trusts).

    Goodwill to all – in all the ways we can

    Tis the season… I was really pleased to go to the launch of LabourList’s new pamphlet written by an inspiring group of candidates. Having read it, I feel the future is in good hands. I have hope – something I have been struggling with lately. I strongly recommend you all read it. At the launch event, one of the speakers – forgive me I can’t remember who – said something that seems so obvious and uncontroversial I was surprised at what […]

    The campaign victories of 2014

    As we start looking to the new year (or at least the bit before May), I thought it was time for a reminder of the campaign victories of 2014. It’s been a bleak year in a lot of ways: a housing crisis, more eye-watering cuts, the rise of UKIP and human rights atrocities abroad. But there have been significant wins too, none of which would have been possible without the hard work and determination of campaigners. Although Class is a […]

    Labour is the real party of the family

    It has been a pleasure to guest edit LabourList today on the hugely important issue of families. We’ve had fantastic contributions from a wide range of people. All of the pieces send a clear message: Labour is the real party of the family. We understand that many families are struggling under this government. We know they want to support and care for one another, and to build a better life, but they need a government that will back their efforts […]

    PMQs Verdict: Think of those who will have a distinctly un-Merry Christmas, thanks to Cameron

    There’s a risk at Christmas time of going through the motions at work in the run up to Christmas. It’s dark and cold outside, and all you really want to be doing is sorting out the Christmas tree, finishing your shopping and eating mince pies. (Obviously that’s not the case at LabourList – and certainly not the reason why this PMQs verdict is arriving three hours after Cameron and Miliband sat down. Ahem…). There was an element of pre-Christmas about […]
