  1. Congratulations Eileen on your win in Sopwell, a ray of light in a dismal few days since last Wednesday. The next few years will difficult for all of us who believe in fairness across the spectrum but the party will survive and regenerate. Strategy for overhauling a 100 seat majority should start almost immediately with the new leader. The importance of aspiration seemed to be lacking or if it was, it was not correctly or emphasised enough during the campaign.
    Again well done on shoving the Lib/Dems into second place where they deserve to be.
    Best wishes
    Malcolm and Valerie Proudley (Labour Party members)
