East Midlands

Down on Saturday for the spring campaigning event in Nottingham. Good turnout with lots of members keen on campaigning. Nice to see good support from Unison and GMB as well.

I always think the East Midlands is one of the key areas for Labour. London based commentators don't always give it the attention it deserves but the next General Election will depend on the results in places like Gedling, Northampton and Kettering.

Emily, The Regional Director and the small team of organisers she has are doing a great job and the campaign event went really well.

Next year I'm hoping we can again stage events like this around the country, coupled with a national local councillors conference.
