Come help Simon Wright in Norwich South on Sept 3rd

Remember Norwich South on the 6th May 2010, when Simon Wright made that astonishing breakthrough to take the seat from a former Labour Cabinet minister?

We all know that success like this is only sustained if we keep working outside election times.
So Eastern Region are holding an Action Day on Saturday, September 3rd.

There will be surveying and recruitment, and a chance to talk over lunch with other campaigners, including Simon Wright.

So do join us.

And do bring others with you. Why not ask new members or deliverers if they would like to come with you? This will be a great chance for some to try out door-knocking for the very first time, and for others to try their hand at recruiting.

If you want, you can stay for the early evening, and we’ll go for a meal at a local eatery.
In order for the day to be well organised, to make sure we print enough materials and don’t print too much, it’s vital we know who is coming.

So please do e-mail us at [email protected] to let us know if you are coming, and how many people you may be bringing with you, as soon as you can.

    Yes, it was astonishing that you unseated Charles Clarke. What was most astonishing was that in a university city, so many students believed the Liberal Democrats when they gave pledges to abolish tuition fees, not to treble them.

    To be fair, Simon Wright kept his word and voted against increasing tuition fees:

  • Fair point, Chris, and all credit to Simon Wright for being principled on his tuition fees pledge.

    However, it doesn’t alter the fact that many of those who voted Liberal Democrat in Norwich South and elsewhere would have done so because they feared the VAT “bombshell” which those excellent posters emphasised, or because they heeded Clegg’s warning that if the Tories returned to power there would be rioting in inner cities…..

    but remember it was only after he got reminded several times after saying he was going to vote to increase fees.
