There are likely to be two important vacancies opening at the top of the Labour Party quite soon - and the Deputy Leadership is also going to be contested. When Hazel agreed to be my facebook friend (or was it the other way around?), I decided to give her a friendly hand in her quest for the Deputy Leadership tiara. She's a great friend to have as she keeps in regular touch. Here's an invite attached to her latest missive.
Time and Place Date: Wednesday, April 25, 2007
Time: 6:30pm - 8:00pm
Location: 1st Floor Lecture Theatre, Queen Annes Business Centre,
Street: 28 Broadway, SW1H 9JX
Hazel Blears MP will be giving a lecture to SERA members, as part of our Deputy Leadership Lecture series.
This is a great opportunity to hear from the candidates (Note 1) and express your views to them on the importance of environmental policy (Note 2), and what you think are the key issues for the third term Labour government and the next 10 years. Do they support personal carbon quotas? How would they solve the energy gap? Are they in favour of building new nuclear power stations? How will they ensure implementation across the board of a positive environmental strategy? (Note 3) This is your opportunity to explore these areas and any others of your choosing with all (Note 4) those wishing to be a part of leading our party.
GUESTS ARE ALLOWED TO BRING FRIENDS TO THIS EVENT!
Note 1 - candidates plural? (bit misleading)
Note 2 - this makes me want to go
Note 3 - I wonder whether they would just send an email in advance outlining their basic position so we can prepare our questions.
Note 4 - All?I doubt that we can expect Brown, Meacher, McDonnell, Benn, Blears, Cruddas, Hain, Harman & Johnson to be in attendance?
Interestingly, I am slated to be London on this evening, although I am supposed to be playing chess for one of the oldest clubs in the capital... I think I'll play chess.
