Dear Romford CLP,


I am emailing to invite you to participate in a research project on the politics of Labour and the suburbs in the 1990s.


I am an undergraduate studying History at the University of Cambridge. I am carrying out research for my third-year dissertation, concerning Labour’s electoral coalitions from the 1980s through to the early-2000s. In particular, I am exploring Labour’s attempts to appeal to the suburbs of southern England. I am interested in the ways in which Labour communicated with and courted the votes of Conservative and ‘swing’ voters. I am also interested in the ways individual MPs and party activists negotiated the tensions between local politics and the broader project of party ‘modernisation’.


As we advance deeper into the twenty-first century, the 1990s are inexorably receding into ‘history’, but that ‘history’ is itself still largely unwritten. The 1990s remain virgin ground for historians, and there are many challenges to be faced in moving beyond polemical debates that still reach into our present. But these challenges pose an opportunity to ‘make’ history – to influence how this period is remembered. The winning of Romford, alongside the other Havering seats, was a reflection of the extraordinary transformation that Labour underwent in these years. It is the perfect place in which to begin a history of New Labour that moves beyond the existing spread of ‘high political’ journalistic accounts.


There are three ways in which you can participate in my research.


1. Written source material.

I am very interested in any papers you might have. These can take the form of local party minutes and agendas; campaign literature; personal papers and notes; correspondence; etc.

If you agree to release written source material for my research purposes, I will use the material with due ethical diligence and responsibility. I will ensure the material is used solely for my own research.


2. Interview.

I am carrying out interviews to complement written source material. If any of your members are willing to be interviewed for this project, the interview will be carried out in line with Cambridge University History Faculty’s oral history guidelines (available here: https://www.hist.cam.ac.uk/undergraduate/hist-tripos/part-ii/dissertations/oral-history-guidelines-undergrads).


3. Contacts.

I would be very grateful if you could point me in the direction of other people who might be able to participate. I am particularly keen to speak to your former MP, Eileen Gordon. If you could let me


If you wish to learn more about me, please do contact me with any questions. I have been a member of the Labour Party for many years. I have been elected three times to the Executive Committee of the Cambridge Universities Labour Club, and I am currently a branch delegate to the Hackney North and Stoke Newington CLP. I am also a member of the Fabian Society and the Co-Operative Party. For my academic and research credentials, please contact my Director of Studies, Sylvana Tomaselli (st240@cam.ac.uk), and my dissertation supervisor, Alex Campsie (amc98@cam.ac.uk). For a non-academic reference, please contact Sheila Fitzsimons, former Executive Editor at Guardian News and Media (sheilafitzsimons1@gmail.com).


I am very excited by this project, and I hope to hear from you soon.


Kind regards,


Samuel Willis

Jerry Weber – Independent NEC Candidate


Dear CLP Secretary,


I am putting myself forward again for the NEC election for the CLP section of the NEC. The nominations close on 22nd June and CLP nomination can be made here – NEC nominations.


I am writing to ask you to consider giving me one of your 9 nominations. I am a truly independent candidate with a strong grassroots CLP background. I believe that we need independently minded non-aligned and experienced people on the NEC. If elected, I will be an open and fair member of the NEC, listening to all parts of our diverse Party. I will ensure that members are kept informed of the developmental changes in the Party. Members should not be the last to know about their own Party. We need to Support our democratically elected leader Jeremy Corbyn and his excellent shadow cabinet.


Progress or Momentum? Do we want to support a party within a party? I believe we need more non-aligned independent members on the NEC.
If you are no longer the secretary, please pass this on. It would also be helpful to know when your CLP has decided its nominations, please contact me on jerryweberfornec@gamil.com .

Good afternoon,

I am a resident in the Hylands ward of Hornchurch.

The local elections are in 3 days and so far the only contact I have had are some scaremongering, lightly racist literature through my door from the Conservative Party.


How are the local residents meant to make an informed decision on who to vote for if none of the other candidates make contact with them ?


Will my local candidates be in contact soon?


Many thanks,


Rob Jones

To invite Romford members, supporters, affiliates and friends to our Fundraising Film night – ’Sink’ preview all welcome!


Richard


Fundraising Film night – ’Sink’ preview


Thursday 19th April 2018 7pm for 7:30


Essex Arms, 10 Warley Hill, Brentwood CM14 5HA


The film ‘Sink’ is going to be released in the summer, so this event is a preview followed by a discussion.


Entry – £10, reduced £5


Drinks from the bar, bring nibbles to share.


SINK is a feature film, shot mainly in South East London, written and directed by Mark Gillis. It’s about a man, Micky Mason, trying to keep things together working part time/zero hours. He’s in the position, familiar to many, of looking after the generation above and below – his father is slowly losing himself to dementia and his son is finding it hard to stay clean on an estate where drugs are everywhere. Micky is fired from his latest dead end job and there’s nothing out there but more of the same. His Dad’s care home has just been bought out and they’ve put up their prices. Micky takes one look at where the local authority wants to place his Dad and brings him back to live with him in his bedsit.

He thinks they’ll be fine. He tries so hard to be. But he’s drowning.”

JERRY WEBERINDEPENDENT CANDIDATE FOR NEC


Dear colleague,


My name is Jerry Weber and I am the chair of Warwick & Leamington CLP. I was also the agent for Matt Western at the General Election in June where we pulled off a remarkable victory and overturned a Tory majority of 6,500.


I am standing as a non-aligned and independent candidate for one of the CLP places on the NEC.


I am standing because I am very concerned about the continuing rift and discord within the Party. It really is time we put our differences behind us and started to build a party to offer the electorate a real alternative. The Party needs reforming. I will be committed to open processes and transparency in dealing with difficult issues such as suspensions and expulsion from the Party.


I hope that you will be holding a nomination meeting and that you will support me and give an independent voice a chance to be on the ballot paper. Although I am a member of the Co-operative Party, I am not aligned to any other group. I believe that CLP representatives on the NEC need to be independent and not dependent on groups such as Momentum and Progress.


At the Party Conference in Brighton, Jeremy Corbyn launched the Party Democracy Review. This is an excellent opportunity to reshape the way the party operates and in particular a greater voice for members through the CLPs.

The NEC is our key body that directs the future of the Party. If elected, I will listen to members not factions within the Party.


Check out my flyer on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/jerry.weber.121


I look forward to your support.


Best wishes


Jerry

To whom it may concern,


My name is Paul Clarkson. I am a member of the Labour party and in the Newnham ward in Cambridge. I am writing to see if your CLP has made its nominations yet for the additional NEC candidates.


I am also writing to ask if your CLP would nominate me. I am Chair of my ward, a delegate at GC and the European member of the Executive Committee.


My platform is on economic recovery by diversifying the economy away from purely financial services and into a new industrial drive on science and engineering, particularly using universities as growth centres. I used to work for Rolls-Royce and I am just about to complete a PhD in physics, chemistry and electronic engineering.


I have spent time working with the Civil Service and the Royal Academy of Engineers and I am an advocate of policy development in these areas. I also champion education and health reform.


I am also a writer in the entertainment industry and currently working on the BBC/HBO adaptation of Phillip Pullman’s Dark Materials trilogy (Northern Lights, Subtle Knife and Amber Spyglass).


I will be completing supporting material this weekend (video and a side of A4) and I’m happy to take phone calls to discuss my platform if it pleases your CLP. I look forward to hearing from you.


Kind regards,


Paul Clarkson

Dear Sirs,

I am Martina Lucchin, a 26 years old student from Italy. I study Political Science at University in Bologna (Master in Mass media and Politics). I received a grant to carry out a research period abroad for the preparation of my degree thesis. My italian supervisor Dr. Filippo Tronconi (Associate Professor of Political Science, Università di Bologna, Department of Social and Political Sciences) and I decided to perform the field research in London, helped by the english tutor Dr. Edoardo Bressanelli (Lecturer in European Politics, King’s College London, Department of European & International Studies).

My degree thesis deals with the General Election 2017 and the research is focused on the organization of election campaigns of parties. My project research makes a comparison between the online campaigns and the fields operations of the parties. For this reason I would be very interested in meeting someone of Labour Party who joined the General Election campaign. I will stay in London from 7th September to 27th October and I would make some interviews about the organization of the campaign and the field operations.

The interviews are fundamental for my project research and I would be grateful if you could help me in finding someone (volunteers, militants, candidates…) who campaigned for your Party and who are available for an interview.

If you require any further information, please feel free to ask me. You can contact me by email (martina.lucchin@studio.unibo.it martina.91.ml@gmail.com) or by mobile phone (7459172571; +39 340 1653817).

Thank you in advance for any help you might be able to provide.

Yours faithfully,

Martina Lucchin

I would like to know why Labour doesn’t bother campaigning in Romford? I would like to feel like my vote counts but as it stands I feel like there is no point in voting as it seems the Labour party has accepted that Rosindell will reign forever in Romford.

Please send me some Vote Labour Posters.

I know that our National IQ is 2 points higher than the USA. But if the Tories win this election, does it not say that we are even more stupid than the people that voted for Trump. At least they can claim that collectively they are below average intelligence.
