Swanley & District Labour Party joined the Labour Party’s Better With Labour Day of Action. On a bright, sunny, if cold day we campaigned alongside the fair and festive celebrations in the Town Centre. Handing out “Better Off With Labour” leaflets to the music of John Lennon’s Happy Christmas was a real treat.
A few Tories grumbled at our presence, but we were met with a very positive response from most residents. The Tories are becoming well and truly despised for the terrible cuts they are inflicting on people.
Local Councillor and Labour Leader Mike Hogg joined us and was given a warm welcome from people.
People were very impressed that Swanley Labour’s campaign to stop U&I building luxery tower blocks in Swanley Town Centre had been seen off. Five people inquired about joining the party and several others wanted to come along to our meetings to find out what Labour was all about.
All in all it was one our best days out campaigning.
