Lobby of Salford CLP: Hazel survives for now
Last’s night lobby of the Salford Constituency Labour Party meeting where there was a motion of no confidence in Hazel Blears went off really well. The motion, which could only be voted on by a small committee of Labour members, rather than the whole of the constituency party, was defeated, meaning Hazel Blears survives for now.
It did get the campaign really good coverage though. In the first week of the campaign, we’ve been on most national TV news and all the national newspapers. Its clear that the people of Salford don’t want Hazel as there MP and we can use this launch to make that wish a reality. So join the campaign, collect signatures on the petition and lets keep the pressure up.
Below is a selection of the news coverage of the protest. If you find anymore, email it to email@example.com and we can post it up.
