Arrange for the local candidate to visit our school. Philip Hammond visited today, but I would like the students to also meet the Labour representative who campaigns in the constituency.

I am making contact to seek your support for the campaign against the expulsion of three Labour Party members (Steve Williams, Kate Townsend and Robert Park) from South West Surrey CLP who were expelled just a year ago from the Labour Party for trying to unseat Jeremy Hunt in his South West Surrey constituency in the 2017 general election.


We were trying to secure an agreement between Labour, Greens and Liberal Democrats to stand aside their candidate in favour of Dr Louise Irvine of the National Health Action Party, a GP with a passionate belief in the NHS and a stanch opponent of cuts and privatisation. Louise has a strong track record of challenging Jeremy Hunt both in her campaigning and in the courts.


Whether you agree with our approach or not, we believe that we should have the right to hold views on support for progressive alliances in certain circumstances without facing such draconian action by party officials, with no right of appeal.


The three expelled members are asking for your support in two ways:


• Sign the petition for our reinstatement on-line at https://www.ipetitions.com/petition/reinstate-the-godalming-three


• Move a motion at your CLP supporting our reinstatement along the lines of that submitted by South West Surrey CLP:

“This CLP expresses its outrage at the expulsion of three active Labour Party members in the South West Surrey CLP on 8th May 2017, for supporting a Progressive Alliance, as previously mandated by the CLP membership voting on two previous occasions.

We demand the immediate reinstatement of these three members.”


Background


Jeremy Hunt is a deeply unpopular local MP whom many of his constituents, like people up and down the country, hold responsible for the damage done to the National Health Service over the five years of his stewardship as secretary of state for health. In the seventh safest Conservative seat in the country, Steve, Kate and Robert and many other Labour, Liberal Democrat and Green supporters, and supporters of no particular political party were determined to make an effort to unseat Jeremy Hunt.


The three Godalming members were seeking an arrangement such as that endorsed by the Labour Party in the Tatton constituency in the 1997 general election where both Labour and the Liberal Democrats agreed to stand aside to support the Independent candidate, Martin Bell. Martin Bell contested the traditionally Conservative Tatton constituency in 1997 and defeated the deeply unpopular local MP, Neil Hamilton, who subsequently defected to UKIP.


Members of South West Surrey CLP, including the three expelled members, were supporting the candidature of Dr Louise Irvine, an experienced GP and health campaigner who has stood against Jeremy Hunt as a protest candidate in 2015 and earned the respect of progressives across the political spectrum. Dr Irvine was a highly articulate advocate for the NHS and, having defeated Jeremy Hunt in the courts following her campaign to stop the closure of Lewisham Hospital, she was seen as the candidate best placed to oppose Jeremy Hunt and become the next MP for South West Surrey.


The constituency party as a whole was supportive of a progressive alliance and was the first Constituency Labour Party (CLP) to pass a motion in support of a progressive alliance, following the declaration of the Richmond Park by-election in 2016. Many other CLP members publicly supported the stance taken by the Godalming Three and spoke out in favour of supporting Dr Louise Irvine in the election. Some spoke to Ross Hawkins of Radio 4’s Today programme, covering the “Progressive Forum” meeting on Saturday 6th May which endorsed Dr Irvine, also spoke in her favour. However, only the voices of Steve Williams, Kate Townsend and Robert Park were broadcast – and therefore it was for that reason that they were singled out for punishment – a punishment that was then used by Labour Party officials to stop the Labour Party participating in progressive alliances in other constituencies.


South West Surrey is no longer a “safe” Conservative seat.

NOTE


Throughout the entirety of the period during which Kate Townsend, Robert Park and Steve Williams were thrown into the national media spotlight because of the precipitate and premature action of party officials, they all maintained their unwavering loyalty to the Labour Party throughout, explicitly stating that all they were trying to do was to play some part in helping to secure a Labour government or a Labour-led government, with Jeremy Corbyn at number 10 Downing Street. They still maintain that loyalty to the party and that is why they are seeking to be reinstated.

JERRY WEBERINDEPENDENT CANDIDATE FOR NEC


Dear colleague,


My name is Jerry Weber and I am the chair of Warwick & Leamington CLP. I was also the agent for Matt Western at the General Election in June where we pulled off a remarkable victory and overturned a Tory majority of 6,500.


I am standing as a non-aligned and independent candidate for one of the CLP places on the NEC.


I am standing because I am very concerned about the continuing rift and discord within the Party. It really is time we put our differences behind us and started to build a party to offer the electorate a real alternative. The Party needs reforming. I will be committed to open processes and transparency in dealing with difficult issues such as suspensions and expulsion from the Party.


I hope that you will be holding a nomination meeting and that you will support me and give an independent voice a chance to be on the ballot paper. Although I am a member of the Co-operative Party, I am not aligned to any other group. I believe that CLP representatives on the NEC need to be independent and not dependent on groups such as Momentum and Progress.


At the Party Conference in Brighton, Jeremy Corbyn launched the Party Democracy Review. This is an excellent opportunity to reshape the way the Party operates and in particular ensuring a greater voice for members through the CLPs.


The NEC is key to a democratic future of the Party. If elected, I will listen to members not factions within the Party.


Check out my flyer on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/jerry.weber.121


I look forward to your support.


Best wishes


Jerry

Dear Mr Weetman,

Re your email of 6.10.17, we have been notified today that there will be a meeting regarding the rebuilding of the Health Centre in Weybridge at St. James’ Church Hall tomorrow, the 17th October at 2pm. There will also be a meeting in the evening at 7pm. I thought you should know.

Regards,

Jennifer Knapman.

Can we provide a speaker to your CLP?


Dear Runnymede and Weybridge CLP,


I’m writing to offer to provide a speaker on Proportional Representation to a meeting of your CLP or local branch-level meetings.


The Labour Campaign for Electoral Reform (LCER) and Make Votes Matter (MVM) are working together to get the discussion about Proportional Representation going in the Labour Party.


This issue has never been more important than it is now, with a Conservative-DUP government elected on just 43% of the vote. We would love to lead a discussion or take part in a debate about how changing the voting system would strengthen our party, democracy and society.


Would you be interested in hosting a Labour-affiliated speaker at one of your future meetings? Also please feel free to pass this offer on to your local branches.


Some recent examples of the kind of meetings we have provided speakers for include Sandy Martin MP speaking at a CLP meeting in Suffolk, Joe Sousek (executive member of LCER and co-founder of MVM) speaking at one in South West Wales, and Mary Southcott (Parliamentary & Political Officer, LCER) speaking at a public meeting organised by Wells CLP. We would be delighted to be able to do something similar with you.


If you are interested in hosting a speaker, please get back to me with one or two possible dates and we’ll look for an appropriate person who can attend.


All the best,


Ellen

Dear Sir/Madam, I would like to attend the next meeting of the party in chertsey but i dont know when, i think someone tried to get in touch with me on messenger but i am not on it, i only have my email address could you email me and let me know? thanks jacquelinejenner@sky.com

Another year has gone by without anything being done in Chertsey and here we are again, being expected to vote for people whose intentions for the area we know nothing about.


Chertsey is a town on its arse through lack of investment, interest and vision by successive Conservative councils. I have contacted Mark Nuti regarding his 6 point plan for the area and am contacting all the candidates to understand what they are going to do for the area.

Without information, a vote is useless. This is why the town is in it current state. People vote blindly.


I would like to know what you propose to improve the town? Please do not say more affordable housing as we have enough council properties and pikeys in the area already. I want to know what plans you have to turn this turn around?


This email will be going out to all candidates. Without information – no vote!


Many thanks


Kevin Lilley

Hi, I was just wondering if local meetings have resumed and if so, if I could come along. I am a Labour Party member and I live in Chertsey. Many thanks

Hi

Change of contact details.

as with most CLP meetings, I find myself unable to attend due to health problems. The same physical problems MS that have made it imposable for me to live at home (the address you already have as my home address). I have been placed into a local care home. Thanks to the internet and the websites of the TUC, UNITE (my union) LABOUR and the HSE plus a few news. These enable me to keep up with what is happening out there. Should you or any other member wish to contact me please feel free. No phone number yet I will let you know when I have.
commented 2016-07-21 02:52:26 +0100
I am very concerned! I have only just seen an email sent to me regarding a closing date of the 20th July and an additional payment of £25 to be able to vote as a new member of the Labour Party. As I am not based at a desk as I am a carer to the elderly, as many members of the Labour Party are, my question is how can you disenfranchise a whole sub section of your support by such peculiar measures? When I joined there was no mention of the above! This smacks of corruption!

Why would I want to be a part of a corrupt party? I might as well vote for the Conservatives if I want corruption on this scale!

Please explain this absurd decision and lack of knowledge for new members who are looking for a change in the political structure because the current system is so flawed!

To help keep Jeremy Corbyn as leader of the Labour Party

John MacDonnell and Jeremy Corbyn can and should be leading this country.
commented 2016-07-15 09:43:01 +0100
I’ve contacted you around four times and have received no reply. So I can only assume you are ignoring me because I support the democratically elected leader of the party. Something which you appear not to do.


Do you think trying to keep Jeremy Corbyn off the ballot paper was democratic? Do you think barring 130,000 people from voting is fair after they joined with the promise of being able to vote.


I think it’s disgraceful.


The Labour Party are trying to rig the vote and we are all watching.


Do you think this is the correct course of action?


Your views would be welcome at some point.
commented 2016-07-12 19:40:52 +0100
I have recently joined the Labour Party, having been a lifelong supporter. I’m disgusted at the behaviour of the Westminster MP’s who seem, to me, to be completely out of touch with the British electorate and the Labour grass roots; in failing to support the elected leader.


Many young people have been inspired to join the Party by Jeremy Corbyn; many more, like myself, are fed up to the back teeth with career politicians who are masters/mistresses of the soundbite.


Angela Eagle will not, in my view, command the support of the British electorate. She may be a very pleasant woman, however, she seems weak and ineffectual.


I hope that you are able to convey this message to the upper echelons of the Party – as the future of our Party is at stake. I fear if they continue along this completely undemocratic route, the Party will be unelectable and in ruins.


Thankyou and best wishes.

Dear Runnymede & Weybridge Labour,


We whole heartedly support Jeremy Corbyn to remain as elected leader of The Labour Party.


I’m sure you’d not be surprised that myself, my wife and daughter who are all paying members of The Labour Party will cancel our membership if this coup continues and Jeremy is forced to quit.


What is your position on Jeremy Corbyn as Leader of The Labour Party?


Yours sincerely,


Paul, Zoë and Olive Elliott-Smith

My son and I are interested in attending Labour Party meetings, perhaps with a view to joining. Please could you give details of upcoming meetings; any general advice welcome.

I did not receive a polling card for the recent local elections, and was not even aware that they were taking place. Unusually, I did not receive any promotional literature from local parties either.

Was there supposed to be some sort of official local notification of the elections?

Is it not the duty of the council to notify the electorate?

If I was not informed, I wonder how many other local people were denied their electoral rights?

I have put a complaint in to the Runnymede web site, and asked them to confirm their duties, to investigate the process, and to void the previous process and hold a new election (after first notifying ALL residents).

I note from the results documents that there was a very low turnout. Maybe this is why!
commented 2016-03-26 13:34:34 +0000
Complaint.

I have just had a phone call from someone claiming to be from the Labour party, they called my mobile using my first name when I don’t even know them. They then said I’m out side the front door of your flat will you come down and sign a form!

That is unacceptable as far as I’m concerned and a misuse of my personal information.

If there is a repetition of this unannounced cold calling using my personal information I will withdraw my membership.
