On Saturday April 24th the Labour Movement for Europe together with the UK Branches of PES sister parties (German SPD, French & Portuguese Socialists, to name but a few) & Labour Friends of Italy are going to Poplar & Limehouse to campaign and help re-elect Jim Fitzpartick MP.
With so many undecided voters that close to the elections, every door knocked, every letter delivered, every hand shook and every conversation had can make all the difference especially in three-way marginals.
Jim faces a double euro-sceptic threat in his constituency. George Galloway’s Respect Party seems to think of Europe as an irrelevance. They didn’t even field candidates in the European Elections last year. The real threat, however, is that the euro-ignorant Respect party wins enough of the Labour vote to let the Tories in by the default. Since last week the Tories have let the euro-phobic cat out of the bag. Faced with Nick making inroads in Dave’s vote, they have started accusing the LibDems of leading the UK in to a European ‘Super-state’ and to be soft on immigration. A right-wing euro-sceptic’s dream combination as it merges small government rhetoric with euro/xeno-phobic sentiments.
Come on Saturday and help to re-elect Jim and to make Britain a fairer, greener, safer and more pro-European country.
