this from John Prescott:
I'm coming to Reading to speak at Labour's South East regional conference on Saturday February 20th.So I thought why not ask local supporters to pop down for a chat.It's an opportunity for us to meet, chat about what we want from a Labour Fourth Term and get ready for the local and general elections.All Labour members and supporters are invited and attendance is absolutely free!And if you want to join the party, I'll sign you up there and then.Don't worry if you're not a member. Just RSVP to this invite so we can see who's coming from the Go Fourth Facebook group.We'll be in the bar of the Hilton Hotel, Drake Way, Reading, RG2 0GQ 2HQ from 5.30pm.Hope to see you then!
would be nice if he turned out a bit earlier to knock on some doors, perhaps in south Reading close to the venue, you would think Mr Powers, as regional director of the Labour Party and also a candidate in Church ward (2004 three Labour councillors, now, three Tory councillors) would want someone helping out there - wouldn't you? I have always thought John was the best electoral asset the party has, but the leadership of Reading Labour disagrees with me on that and has done little but slag him off since 1997.
