Thursday 14th February: 7.30 pm, the February All Member CLP Meeting,  Kingsteignton Community Hall, Mary Hall Suite, Rydon Road, Kingsteignton, TQ12 3LP:

Welcoming all members to an interesting, themed meeting, after a small amount of business, including a motion on Immigration and repatriation presented by Bruce Mattock, (the wording of which is copied below)  the meeting will swing into true Valentine’s evening style, and we will be exploring “Compassion in Politics” – think about the media, austerity policies, benefits, immigration and repatriation, homelessness, the poverty report, the cuts to vital services, attitude to party politics, and individuals involved in politics. The big question is about the lack of compassion across all of these, and particularly to do with Tory Policy. How do we change this? How do we present ourselves as political members?

Saturday 16th February, 11.00 am – 1.00 pm The Labour Manifesto Road Show: at The Strand Community Centre Dawlish, 15 The Strand, Dawlish EX7 9PS.

Hear James Osben, Bruce Mattock and Marilyn Warrener speak, about the UN Poverty Report, and about housing and homelessness locally. How can you help? What is the local Labour Party doing? Find out at the meeting.
