A constituent of mine phoned me up the other day to tell me they had been called upon by what they described as a “looney Lefty” called Ken, representing the Labour party.
Now I rather like the NE Cambs Labour people that I’ve met, to be honest, and find them to be quite sensible Lefties even if we don’t agree on much of anything. But I thought it interesting that they are out canvassing already. Clearly more organised than they’ve been in a while.
I put this down to Dean Reeves, who is an exceptionally bright and eloquent gentleman who I am very fond of. He’s been a driving force behind local Labour for some time.
A little scouting and I turned up their “Campaign Launch” event. Here it is.
I guess the “Ken” in this video is the same Ken who was seen canvassing in Medworth. Hello Ken! Welcome to Medworth!
It has been edited to show the “highlights.” I think they need to get somebody else to edit it. It looks like Dean Reeves, talking for about four hundred years, and some balloons. :) As parties go, i’ve seen some that were more kickin’ than this, but I expect it was meant to be a very serious intellectual event, so that’s to be expected.
Our local Labour folk have always been the most honourable and genuine opposition group, sticking to the issues and not getting into dirty tricks. So with that in mind, my red flagged friends, I’d like to wish you well with “break a leg” in the theatre tradition. May the best men and women win.
