Message from Ed Miliband
I have been all over the country in the last few weeks and everywhere I have been there’s been one thing in common: Labour Party candidates and members out and about everywhere, knocking on doors, tweeting, coming to events, talking to their friends and neighbours. I am so proud to lead a party that recognises that elections are won conversation by conversation, doorstep by doorstep.
This has seen us win seats across the country. We’ve taken control in Hammersmith & Fulham, Croydon, Redbridge, Merton, Harrow, Bradford, Amber Valley, Cambridge and Crawley Councils. Labour is the biggest party in local government.
I know that this is just the beginning. We are just under a year from the general election now. The fight will be even harder, our opponents will throw even more at us but everything that I have seen in this campaign makes me even more confident that we can win. It has shown me more than ever too that we must win, for all those people working so hard, doing everything they can, and still not able to afford a decent life for themselves and their families.
We all know that Britain needs
Labour local government and a Labour government. Together we can make it happen.
Thanks for all of your work and support.
