Welsh Labour launch online fundraising campaign to fight David Jones in 2015

16th February, 2013 5:25 pm

LabourList readers will be familiar with David Jones, the Welsh Secretary whose vile remarks on same sex parents have caused widespread condemnation today.

Now Welsh Labour have launched an online fundraising campaign against Jones – similar to last year’s Bye Bye Burley campaign – aimed at raising funds for Clwyd West CLP to fight Jones on the ground ahead of the next election and perhaps even unseating him. Launching the appeal, the Welsh party said:

“First he was caught taking his chauffer driven ministerial car just 100 yards for a meeting and now Tory Secretary of State for Wales, David Jones, has claimed that same sex couples can’t provide “a warm and safe environment for the upbringing of children.” The Clwyd West MP is showing he is out of touch with the lives and priorities of his constituents.”

Every pound donated will go to Clwyd West CLP and have an impact in Jones’s constituency – you can donate here.

They claim to love Britain, […]

    Ed Miliband rattles Boris Johnson on the Marr sofa

    Ed Miliband gave what I thought was his best and clearest Marr interview this morning – including stating in the clearest terms yet that there won’t be a Labour/SNP deal after the election. He was also far more assertive and confident than he’s been in previous encounters. But by far the best session of the Marr show – and perhaps the best clash of the election so far – was Ed Miliband taking on a clearly rattled Boris Johnson afterwards and […]

    Ed Miliband says “I’m not doing deals with the SNP”

    Ed Miliband was on Andrew Marr this morning – and he went further than he’s gone before on ruling out a a Labour/SNP deal. Miliband said: “I’m not doing deals with the SNP” And when pressed specifically on “confidence and supply”, Ed Miliband ruled that out too.
