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.

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

    75% of Labour PPCs want Trident gone, poll finds

    75% of Labour PPCs want to see Trident scrapped, according to information collected by the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament (CND). CND have surveyed 79 Labour prospective parliamentary candidates (PPCs) – which includes both current MPs and new candidates. Of those asked, 75%  said they wouldn’t vote to renew Trident.
