Latest News from Bath Labour

The North Branch of Bath Labour Party passed a motion at its recent meeting to send a message to the Leader of the Labour Party expressing the following views:

  • It is our firm conviction that the Parliamentary party must effectively show its strength and resolve, AS HM OPPOSITION, by standing in solidarity against the Government’s bill to trigger article 50 in its present form.
  • The Labour Party’s policy was, and is, to remain an effective member of the EU and every means should be deployed by the leadership, to build a future for the UK which secures, as a minimum, free movement of people, goods and services.
  • It is not necessary to rush headlong into supporting this government’s callous approach to its responsibilities.
  • A measured and credible opposition will serve the people of this country far more than a craven acceptance of the government’s management of our departure from the EU.

Bath Labour out in support for the NHS

Private renting in Abbey can cost as much as 50% of the household's income.

Vicky Drew, Labour candidate for Abbey ward, comments on the rental issues in Central Bath.

Many private tenants are subject to insecure or short term tenancies and evictions. This can result in problems with job security, debt, health, access to health care, schooling and in all too many cases, this can lead to poverty and homelessness.

Vicky Drew, Labour candidate for Abbey ward

Abbey has the worst air pollution in the whole of Bath and it's the place where you see austerity cuts making a visible difference in important areas, such as litter management and policing. Abbey needs a councillor that's going to push back hard against these cuts and Vicky is the candidate to do this.

Bath is where I was born and raised, and it's a place I love. One of the things that attracts so many people to our city is its history – the fact that our buildings and streets have not changed for centuries. However, we do need to change the way our city is run.

It is grossly unequal, with one in five children living in poverty. We have a chronic homelessness problem, with people sleeping on our streets and many more unable to find permanent accommodation.

Climate change is the biggest threat to face humanity in generations, yet we have a council that still prioritises car use over public transport.

I'm a single working mother of two. I have known what it's like to be homeless, and to be punished by the Bedroom Tax. Inequality is what gets me fired up but I realised that the best way to change things is to get elected.

I have a strong campaigning background, from national campaigns against welfare cuts to local campaigns for a school crossing, and I want to use that experience to fight for the residents of Abbey ward. That's why I'm seeking your vote on November 17th.

You can follow Vicky on Twitter and Facebook and read more about her and her views on the local issues here.

It’s no secret that many people want Jeremy Corbyn to lose this leadership contest, most notably the majority of his MPs.

A series of resignations from the Shadow Cabinet, followed by an overwhelming vote of no confidence from the Parliamentary Labour Party, could hardly have been more public, with resignation letters appearing online within minutes of being tendered.
