General election – thank you!

Many thanks to all who helped with the General Election Campaign, whether phone canvassing or on the campaign weekends in London and Hastings.

Labour is now facing a period of opposition, but we came out of the elections with our heads held high. We lost power at the national level but we won it back in many local councils. And while many good Labour MPs lost their seats, including a number with special links to our Branch such as Michael Foster and Gwyn Prosser, others, such as Emma Reynolds, former BL Treasurer, are elected for the first time. And Glenda Jackson was re-elected by the narrowest of margins – we like to think the visit by Brussels Labour made all the difference! A big thank you to Brussels Labour members for all they did during the election.
