Just received my ballot papers for the Euro-elections. The bad news for us is that Gary Titley is standing down. Gary has been a great servant for the party over the years and I know he’s going to carry on working hard for labour.
However, we’ve got some good candidates coming through. They all look good to me but I will be voting to re-select our sitting MEP’s – Arlene McCarthy and Brian Simpson. For the women’s place I will be voting for Theresa Griffin – who is a very active trade union and party member from Liverpool – and Riaz Ahmed – well respected councillor from Oldham.
