At the first meeting of the Clacton Labour Party since the General Election, members heard that the campaign had attracted something over 70 new members, bringing the total membership up to a record 400. Our Parliamentary Candidate, Tasha Osben, thanked everyone for their “monumental effort” in supporting her and in forging a real grass roots movement made up of older more experienced members and younger enthusiastic members. She said it had put the Party on a solid footing for going forward and that this was just the start of campaigning across the constituency which will lead on to much greater success in the future.

Dear all,

Tasha_Osben_Labour_Candidate_Clacton_.jpg

Firstly, I would like to thank everybody who has supported me in standing as Labour’s parliamentary candidate for Clacton: from friends both within and outside of the Labour Party who urged me to put myself forward, who had confidence in my principles and the strength of my conviction; to fellow members who gave me their backing throughout the selection process and believed that I was strong enough to stand up for what we all believe in, and who felt that I was a good enough candidate to represent our wonderful constituency in Parliament; to all of those who have been loyal and dedicated volunteers during this campaign - both those who are members of the party, and those who are not but who believe in what we are trying to do here - your commitment, dedication and hard work has been inspirational and I could not have done this without you.

Campaigning_in_jaywick_2.jpg"Somebody commented on a Clacton Labour Party Facebook post stating that The Labour Party has alienated the working class and no longer represent them. My reply is as follows:

If it was true that Labour had alienated themselves from the working class we wouldn't have a working class candidate standing here in Clacton. I was raised by my single mother after my dad died and I am so grateful that I was lucky enough to grow up under a Labour government.

Yesterday a constituency resident brought to my attention that the head of Clacton County High School (CCHS) has sent this letter out to all parents, describing school finances as in a 'dreadful state' after years of Conservative cuts.

It is true that our local schools are struggling under the pressure of Tory cuts, and are set to face even more financial strain under current Conservative budget plans. While pupil numbers have increased and are set to continue increasing, schools are having to let good teachers go as they cannot afford to keep them on, and per-pupil funding is set to be cut by approximately 8%. It is shocking that funding has been cut so much that head teachers in our constituency (and across the country), who usually prefer to remain neutral in party politics, have felt compelled to speak out about the threat being posed against our local schools and our children's education. We must not allow this threat to continue.
