General Election: Campaign begins to select next Labour candidate for Harlow
News / Thu 1st Jun 2023 at 07:01pm
THE CAMPAIGN has opened to find a Labour parliamentary candidate for the next General Election.
The Labour Party have been busy selecting candidates all over the country as they prepare for a General Election that has to take place by January 2025 but most anticipate that it will be October 2024.
This is the first day and we are sure there will be a number of candidates but the leader of Harlow Labour has already put his name forward with an accompanying video (see below).
We look forward to seeing the other candidates.
Selection is expected to take place at the end of the month.
Conservative MP Robert Halfon is defending a majority of 14,063 (32.44%).
Labour leader Keir Starmer has broken every promise he gave when he was competing to become Labour leader. Do I really want to vote for a party whose leader has broken as many promises as Boris Johnson? The answer is No!
Okay David, you suffer another four years of this car crash Tory shambles then.
If the only reason to vote for Labour in this town or indeed this country is to, "get the Tories out" then Labour should go back to the drawing board and think of some policies that would actually radically and progressively improve the lives of the people of this town and indeed this country. Labour had those policies in their 2017 and 2019 manifesto's but they have now been binned by Mr. Starmer sadly. I am not a member of any political party but Cllr. Morrison would give this disgusting government and Mr. Halfon a fright and an agenda worthy of consideration by the electorate but Mr. Starmer would, I am sure, bin those as well!
Gary Roberts has done a fantastic job of answering 'Get the Tories Out'. I have just one addition: the maximum term of parliament is 5 years not 4, unless the Prime Minister makes an early request to the King to dissolve Parliament: see https://commonslibrary.parliament.uk/research-briefings/cbp-9308/
