There's something special going on...
Seemingly unnoticed by the media something special is going on in the ranks of the party.
32,000 members have joined the party since May, the leadership election and post-election debate have been well conducted and new members are getting involved in campaigning.
That is reflected in my own CLP-Salford and Eccles. Over 60 new members, attendances at my branch doubled and at our General Committee last night over 40 in attendance.
We have got a lot of young people active and holding office and are actively campaigning and winning on local issues.
Next May there will be nine wards up for election in the constituency. We are defending 5, the Lib Dems three and the Tories one. We are working hard for a clean sweep of all nine.
