In order for Corbyn to be able to carry out the policies from the 2017 manifesto, he will need supportive Labour MPs in parliament. Across the country Constituency Labour Parties are currently choosing their MP candidates for the next general election. So far, there have been mixed results in getting left-wing candidates selected.
As a target seat, Reading West is currently undergoing their MP candidate selection. Reading members have already come together and made sure that the MP candidate selection panel has Momentum members on board. Next we need to make sure that the candidate chosen to run for election will support our manifesto.
Now is the time to come together as Momentum Reading. If we wait until election time, we could be canvassing for an MP that does not enthuse our members or voters. These next few weeks are absolutely vital in the fight for a socialist Labour government.
Reading West Labour Party Members
If you are a Labour Member and want to be sure you are eligible to vote in this election you can check whether your post code is within the Reading West Constituency.
Hustings and voting will take place on March 10th. As a Momentum supporter, we urge you to vote! Reading Labour have made this easier for everyone by offering a postal vote system for those who are unable to attend the meeting..
All Momentum Members
Any Reading Momentum member can help. We need to rally round the membership to ensure that as many people vote as possible.
