Pavilion Labour Chair, Jon Rogers, reflects on 2017, wishes all members well for the festive period and for a good 2018, and identifies some key challenges ahead for our Party.
Read a summary report of the 2017 AGM of Brighton Pavilion Labour Party and the main business conducted, including details of the members elected to our Executive Committee, whose responsibility it is to manage Pavilion Labour until our next AGM in December 2018.
Is Pavilion no longer facing oblivion? The Boundary Commission has now published its revised proposals for the boundaries of Brighton and Hove’s three parliamentary constituencies. These may be less absurd than the Commission’s last proposals, but we still encourage everyone to have a good look and, if you wish to (we think you might), submit comments before this final consultation ends on 11 December 2017.
All branches and affiliated organisations are notified of the AGM of Brighton Pavilion Labour Party, which will take place on the evening of Wednesday 6 December 2017 at Friends’ Meeting House, Ship Street, Brighton BN1 1AF.
We are delighted that Shadow Foreign Secretary Emily Thornberry MP and Shadow Secretary of State for Justice Richard Burgon MP, will be very special guests at the first Annual Branches Fundraiser at The Old Market in Hove on Thursday 7 December, with music from Jazz For Labour, food supplied by The Real Pattiserie, plus our local MPs Lloyd Russell-Moyle and Peter Kyle. Tickets £30/£5 for this fundraiser to benefit all Labour branches across Brighton & Hove.
Come along with your green mugs, or any old favourite mug, at 2.30pm on Saturday 28 October, for a protest photo outside the Sainsbury’s at Ann Street, just off the London Road, to tell Sainsbury’s not to ditch Fairtrade. Even if you can’t make it on the 28th, please sign the petition here.
Pavilion Labour has held a balanced and friendly debate about Brexit between local members with different opinions, demonstrating that this important issue cannot be used mischievously to cause dissent within our Party.
Labour will defend our NHS from STP attacks: Pavilion Labour condemns the STPs being used to devastate our NHS and calls on Labour councillors to obstruct and delay STPs, and to consult widely with local people as part of a campaign to defend our NHS. Everything that we can do now will make it easier for the next Labour Government to restore our NHS.
Pavilion Labour, and most especially our Regency Branch, is pleased to have hosted the truly inspiring and hopefully unifying Labour Conference 2017. The return of Labour Conference to our beautiful city is enthusiastically anticipated in future years; hopefully as soon as 2019.
Our message of unreserved support to postal workers in the Communication Workers Union (CWU) now in dispute with Royal Mail. Pavilion Labour will stand shoulder to shoulder with the CWU in the days, weeks and months ahead, until Royal Mail becomes the employer the staff deserve, and shows it has the ambition to become the service the public demand. We think that’s best achieved by returning Royal Mail to public ownership. Sign here if you agree.
Oh Jeremy Corbyn! First time delegate Michael Brown describes his experiences at Labour Conference 2017 – a conference where a united Labour Party with passionate speakers, democratic debates and progressive policies gave hope for our country but none for Theresa May!
Get involved – your Labour Party needs you! If you are reading this and are not already a Labour Party member, now is the time to join. For everyone who is a Labour Party member, now is the time to get involved to transform our society. A message from our Chair, Jon Rogers.
Labour is going to be the next government, giving millions of people across the country hope for the future. If you have been inspired by Labour’s policies to save our NHS and to invest to build a better, fairer Britain for the many not the few, share your hope with us here.
Pavilion Labour sends a personal welcome to everyone coming to Labour Conference 2017, in our home town of Brighton from 23 – 27 September. In the Conference Hall we will be asking delegates to support our constitutional amendment; while, outside at the fringe, we have arranged a very special welcome for everyone with Sunday’s Concerts for Corbyn, and will also be enjoying Stand up for Labour and Jazz for Labour on Monday and Tuesday.
As we say in Pavilion Labour – celebrate diversity, fight prejudice, and have fun! Please support our rule change and support our events at #Lab17!
Pavilion Labour will be celebrating diversity, campaigning for equality and enjoying all the fun at Brighton Pride on 5 August 2017. Labour has a proud record of championing the fight for LGBT+ equality. Labour Leader Jeremy Corbyn has campaigned for LGBT people for over 30 years, voting consistently to support LGBT+ rights, for equality and an end to discrimination. Let’s make Jeremy our next Prime Minister and back Labour for a Government which will say no to austerity, yes to equality. Because we’re #LabourAndProud!
Around one-third of all private homes in Brighton & Hove are privately rented. Hollingdean & Stanmer Labour Councillor Tracey Hill asks all private renters to make sure that they respond to the Council’s consultation proposing new licensing regulations for private landlords before 10 September 2017. Labour believes that everybody has the right to decent, safe and affordable housing. Please support Labour councillors taking this step towards providing that for private renters in our city.
There is everything to play for in the final days of this election campaign, and our Chair, Jon Rogers, asks all members to make one last push for Labour in Pavilion and to help with our campaign in Brighton Pavilion as the country faces a clear choice between the Tories and Labour.
There is nothing you can do in the next week and a half that is more important than maximising the Labour vote on Thursday 8 June writes our Chair, Jon Rogers, urging all Labour members and supporters to encourage everyone you know to vote Labour (whoever the candidate) and to volunteer for your local Labour Party in order to leaflet, knock on doors, stand on street stalls, or whatever needs doing in your local Labour Campaign office. In Brighton Pavilion that means working for our candidate, Solomon Curtis.
In a personal message from Solomon Curtis, Labour’s candidate for Brighton Pavilion explains that he wants to focus on the issues which really matter to voters in the General Election – securing our NHS, funding our schools and public services, job insecurity and low wages, high rents, the housing crisis, crippling tuition fees and student loans, to name but a few; and asks for your support on 8 June.
Pavilion Labour welcomes Solomon Curtis as our Parliamentary Candidate for Brighton Pavilion at the 2017 General Election, following the withdrawal, for personal reasons, of Michelle Thew. Let’s do all we can to work for a Labour Government to replace the current Government of Theresa May, with a fairer and more caring alternative, which will ensure Britain’s economy works in the interests of the overwhelming majority of people, not the wealthy few. Vote Labour on 8 June. Solomon Curtis for MP!
Labour stands for equality and social justice at home and for peace and internationalism abroad. Our policies are in the interests of the overwhelming majority of people and our members are united in campaigning for a Labour Government to stop the Tories taking Britain backwards. For an economy that works for all, vote Labour on 8 June and get involved with our 2017 General Election campaign.
The six year old war in Syria has caused untold misery. As Labour’s leadership stands out against action that escalates conflict, Theresa May’s focus is on arms sales and her Government offers nothing constructive towards peace in the Middle East. By contrast, Labour believes in an ethical foreign policy.
Whose NHS? OurNHS! – This was always going to be great! … So begins Ian McIsaac’s report from the national demonstration and march through London to Parliament on Saturday 4 March… Labour is determined to stop the Tories destroying our NHS. Ultimately we need your support to do that. Please vote Labour.
