Caerleon Labour’s annual fund raiser was once again a great success.
We enjoyed a great speech from Paul Flynn MP about the state of the party, the country and the world as a whole. On the subject of the leadership contest he said it was important to address Labour’s current problem in that it’s virtually impossible to sack a leader if things don’t go well while he or she are in office.
Jayne Bryant, our prospective candidate for Newport West in next year’s National Assembly elections, impressed on us that her campaign is already in full swing, and that she’s is determined to speak to as many Newport West voters as possible between now and next May. Branch chair Mike Singleton wished her luck and pledged our support.
We welcome back many old friends and members, as well as quite a few new members and newly registered supporters.
Our thanks, once again to our hosts David and Barbara Gilfillan for the use of Radford House.
