Labour may not have seen the result it had hoped for in the General Elections 2015, but we look forward now to the opportunity to evaluate, learn, rebuild and strengthen over the next five years in opposition.

Election Battle Bus 2015

I organised a 16 seater battle bus, sponsored by TULO, to tour target seats across Greater Manchester and the East Lancs. Ian McNichol, the Labour Party General Secretary, joined us along with Tony LLoyd PPC, Arlene McCarthy, a number of trade union representatives and also Citizen Khan star, Abdullah Afzal.
