After a summer in which the Labour Party have never stopped campaigning and have focused on bringing a message of hope and change to communities throughout Britain, Parliament will resume sitting tomorrow.
This short session before the party conferences will be key in setting the tone until the end of the year. As a Labour MP and a part of Jeremy’s team, I’ll be representing Blackburn’s community and working to unseat this Conservative government at the earliest possible opportunity.
Jeremy’s summer campaign was a resounding success, with a Labour government now a case of when rather than if. He took his message up and down the country, and was well received in the marginal seats he visited. Engaging our expanding membership will mean so many more activists ready to join campaigns to support their communities and return a Labour government to Westminster.
Last week, Theresa May said she wanted to fight the next election. She has taken her party into an election and lost their majority. She does not have the respect of her MPs, she does not have the backing of her activists and, most importantly, she clearly does not have the confidence of the country.
As Parliament prepares to return, we have three words for the Conservatives: bring it on.
