Last Sunday, TV presenter, journalist and novelist Owen Jones and I led a #UnseatIDS campaign day, with hundreds of supporters from all over the country from Manchester to Brighton visiting. We had special guests also join us, including Clare Coghill (leader of Waltham Forest Council), MPs Stella Creasy and Wes Streeting, and World Snookering legend Ronnie O’Sullivan.
All over the constituency, we spoke to residents about our vision of positive, local change in the area and asking them what local issues mattered to them. It was a great day and just the beginning of how powerful our locally-led campaign machine can be. I’m excited to be part of future events like this, and will keep you updated.
The campaigns will continue in preparation for the local election and the next general election. You can sign up to regular updates here at www.bilalmahmood.co.uk or https://www.facebook.com/cwglabour.
