In just two days time, polls open in the UK for the 2019 European Parliament elections.
A vote for Labour in the Eastern region is a vote for hard-working, pro-European MEPs standing on a platform of:
✔️ Opposing austerity in the UK and across Europe
✔️ Standing up to the far right
✔️ Radical action on climate change
✔️ Closing tax loopholes and making sure the rich pay their way
✔️ Backing an EU equality plan
✔️ Protecting EU citizen’s rights
The chances are this election will be won or lost on turnout. If Labour’s vote doesn’t hold up, under the D’Hondt voting system, it’s likely the Brexit Party will be the main benefactors.
Here in Norwich, we’ll be running a ‘get out the vote’ operation all day to remind people who’ve indicated to us they’ll vote Labour to go out and do just that. If you can join me and the Norwich Labour Party team for an hour or two (or more!) on Thursday read more and RSVP here 👉🏾https://events.labour.org.uk/event/274801
