Dear CLP Secretary – Thank you so much for your work.
As you know, NEC and leadership ballot papers are due to arrive with Labour members on Monday. I would be grateful if you could please forward my candidate information to your CLP members?
My broad range of supporters include Jewish Voice for Labour, Labour Left Alliance, Labour Representation Committee, Red Labour, Welsh Labour Grassroots, Labour Briefing and Skwawkbox. Plus thousands of members in well over 100 CLPs that nominated Jo Bird for NEC, mapped above.
As your elected NEC representative I will support Labour through:
* Fairness and natural justice in complaints
* Open selection of Labour MPs, as for Labour councillors
* Freedom, justice and equality for all
* Members-led policy decided at a sovereign conference
My Jewish great grandparents were refugees from fascism in Europe. There is no place for antisemitism or any form of racism in our party. Our diverse society and world needs more understanding and less hostility.
Party members need fair disciplinary processes worthy of our Trade Union and Labour values – demonstrating better consideration for the wellbeing of the accused alongside natural justice. For example, part way through this NEC election nomination process, I was shocked to be suspended before investigation. I was reinstated 9 days later.
I lead by example. As Wirral Labour group secretary, I ensure Party rules are applied fairly to everyone. My positive messages about Labour often go viral, for example my Just Jews video has been viewed over 80,000 times.
Please don’t hesitate to contact me for more information etc.
Councillor Jo Bird
