Broadland Labour Members Group Facebook Page

About our Facebook group

The Group is open only to paid up members of the Labour Party resident in the Broadland Constituency or the Broadland District Council area. The purpose of the group is to encourage open and informed debate about issues affecting the Labour Party in Broadland, in Norfolk and nationally. The Executive Committee of Broadland Constituency Labour Party have agreed the following rules for this group.

  1. all contributions, whatever their views, should be expressed in a polite and comradely fashion,
  2. Insulting or abusive comments will not be allowed. Harassment or intimidation of any member is unacceptable as is any form of discrimination on the basis of gender, age, sexual orientation and gender identity, disability or race,
  3. We do not censor on the basis of support for particular views or candidates but we encourage reasoned argument rather than simple assertions of support for particular policies or candidates,
  4. All content should be in compliance with the Labour Party Rule Book and any legal requirements.

There have been a number of posts and comments recently which have breached the rules of this group. As our new Chair Brenda Jones stated at our recent meeting, we do not want factionalism in our CLP. No “isms” or “istas”. In future any comments or posts which breach our rules will be removed.
