Busy autumn for local Labour

The Skipton and Ripon Labour Party has been busy over the past few months.

On November 25 we took part in Labour’s national campaign day, distributing post Budget leaflets in both Skipton and Ripon high streets. There was a very positive response, showing that even here people are now seeing through the Tories.  Here’s a video Labour produced for the campaign day.

Earlier, on November 17, the guest speaker at the monthly meeting of the Skipton branch was our local MEP Richard Corbett, who is now the leader of the Labour Group in the European Parliament. He knows far more about Brexit than many of the so-called experts and forensically exposed the chaos and contradictions of the Government’s failing negotiations.

We also held a fund-raising dinner on October 6 with guest speaker  John Grogan, our new neighbouring MP from Keighley.  John, who took the seat for Labour in the general election with a majority of just a few hundred, gratefully acknowledged the support that he had had from Skipton members in his election campaign.
