Meeting Barry Gardiner MP – Shadow Secretary of State for International Trade, Shadow Minister for International Climate Change and Member of Parliament for Brent North since 1997.

Mid-Worcestershire CLP were pleased to host Barry Gardiner MP as our key speaker at this year’s AGM. Mr Gardiner is the Member of Parliament for Brent North and is a current member of the shadow cabinet.

Mr Gardiner spoke about the electoral challenges that face the party and how the Labour membership can best work with the PLP to change electoral ‘success’ into a total electoral ‘victory’. Barry finished the visit with an extensive Q&A on issues surrounding Brexit, the mood of the PLP and the importance of local labour activism.

At the AGM, I was successfully re-elected Youth Officer for a third term (2017/18). For the next year, I wish to build on our constituency’s existing campaign strategy and help better our use of Labour’s digital tools. I hope to learn more about Labour’s digital platform from various fringe events at the party conference between 24th-27th September. Advice from Labour members and friends outside the party on this issue would be greatly welcomed.

I am also one of three official delegates, representing the Mid-Worcestershire CLP at conference later this week. Throughout conference, I will be posting updates, videos, reviews and opinion pieces on this blog and via Twitter. Please stay in touch with those.
