Thanks to everyone who attended our ‘Women in Westminster’ event last night in Knaresborough, where Labour’s MP Rachel Reeves gave a powerful insight by someone who has been an MP since 2010. Her conclusion that equal representation is still a way off and that MPs from all sides should work more closely makes perfect sense in our divided times. A great deal of support for this event from members and the public so thanks to everyone who attended.
‘Footnote’ – Rachel had forgotten her shoes so was still wearing her walking trainers which she needed to be wearing yesterday after being in London, attending a TUC meeting, canvassing in Leeds and then coming to Knaresborough to also help us raise money for the CLP!
